I had no idea what to expect, but based on the reviews I suspected would be good. My expectations were WAY surpassed. The property itself takes your breath away - stunning. Xizhou village is like a step back in time - and makes for a great base and nice evening strolls. But it was the staff - from the Lindens themselves to those in the front office (and those you never see), provides the is THE icing on the cake. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating - but never in your face. A nice balance. Depending on what you want to do - they can arrange. I really enjoyed the more local experiences. After visiting both Lijiang and Dali - I was so happy with my decision to stay at the Linden Center and in Xizhou. Wifi is availble all over the property - so you are always connected. It may not be the easiest place to get to - but it is well worth the trip and believe me, you may be tempted to never leave.
