My nephew and his bride booked to resort for their wedding. What a wonderful destination. Sonny, the innkeeper, was very friendly and helpful and readily available. Each cabin is unique and has a theme of sorts. As said, my nephew had the whole resort so we were able to see all the cabins. The main cabin is spacious and ample...

I did not stay here as a guest but was invited to perform a wedding ceremony in the sanctuary. The sanctuary itself was lovely. Mosquitoes were plentiful but that is totally to be expected in the woods! (just a reminder so you can be prepared when you go) Make sure to wear comfy shoes or bring them to change into....

We stayed two nights in one of the smaller, "romantic" cabins and found it to be very nice. Secluded and quiet with a cute small kitchen (not a lot of utensils and few pots and pans) that we used to prepared a simple breakfast. There were plenty of plates, forks, knives, etc for our needs. We throughly enjoyed our visit...

Cabin was full of mice poop and the bed must have been their nest. There were droppings on the tables, bed and futon. Pillows reeked of rodent urine. We figured this is not that unusual for winter in the woods so we tried to contact them for new bedding and pillows. We tried sleeping on the tiny futon with no...

A friend recommended checking out this place. At first I was a bit hesitant to stay in a cabin in the woods by myself. had a really bad couple of weeks at work and by then didn't care, just needed to get away. When i arrived I was a little disappointed at first to see how close together the cabin...

We've stayed at Wellspring for our wedding anniversary for the past 2 years and love it! This resort has cozy, beautifully appointed, rustic log cabins in a tranquil wooded setting with wonderful walking paths (including a labyrinth!), wood stoves or massive stone fireplaces, jetted tubs or hot tubs, a sauna....the list could go on, and its all close to the...

I surprised my boyfriend with a weekend getaway. Our trip coincided with a huge storm that came through the area. There were power outages in Ashford that morning, and much of the the park was closed. Our plans changed, we are easy going people, so we rolled with it. We came to the cabin after 3pm. The power and water...

I wish your stay had been a different experience for you ! Storms and power outages are not what we hope will interfere with a stay at Wellspring ! Others who were here that same night felt the night was adventurous and romantic and fun. Clearly you did not ! When a big storm knocks out the power we have...

My boyfriend and I stayed here one night in August 2013, in the Timbuktu tent. We had requested an early check-in, which was granted over the phone but the room was not ready quite as early as we expected/hoped. This didn't turn out to be a huge problem, though. The most difficult obstacle was finding our room, as it was...

Hello. I am so sorry to hear of your difficulties on your stay here, and I will work harder to make better information available to guests. We do our best to accommodate early check in requests, but we can't always make it work to your wishes. I can only imagine how different and challenging this place must be coming from...
