We stayed (family of 5) for two nights over the President's Day Weekend, occupying an entire cabin, which is two units, so we had a total of 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen and living area. The cabins are well-appointed, very comfortable, and roomy. The hilly setting, on a semi-rural road about 10 minutes outside the town, is lovely. But only the first person using the shower each day got a semi-hot one! After that, the water was cold. We told the staffer at the front desk after our first night and she said she'd send maintenance. That night and the next morning we had the same experience. When we checked out, the front-desk staffer (a different one) was apologetic and knocked about 15% off the bill.
As others have noted, the continental breakfast is kind of a disaster-- it was crowded and poorly maintained (garbage cans overflowing, food running out, messy serving area).
There is an ad-hoc, unfinished vibe to the place-- the staff doesn't seem professional, though they are pleasant enough; the parking and driving areas are bumpy and rutted; and the ambience doesn't quite come up to the rustic luxury feel they promote.
Even the follow-up is off-kilter: I responded in detail to an email survey about our experience there, and never heard back. And the management comments on TripAdvisor are clearly prepackaged responses, and sometimes hilariously inapt. Probably wouldn't go back, which is a shame, considering its potential.
