Rooms were nice with a beautiful view. It was great to have breakfast included. It was a buffet breakfast and the staff were very accommodating. Everyone we encountered were very helpful. Got a little lost trying to find lake to fish. The grounds were secluded and beautiful . The water park on grounds were nice, but water was very cold. My husband and kids had a great time! Would go back again.
