Great staff,great ambience, beautiful rooms. The outside grounds are amazing. So natural.Our favorite thing to do is laying under the big tree in the hammock listening to the crackle of the outdoor fire pit. Thank you for a wonderful experience. So relaxing.........
Traveled over three hours to view this venue yesterday. I made an appointment with Cindi weeks and weeks in advance. Even requested a formal proposal from her specifically for our meeting (which she confirmed would be with "sue")When we arrived- it was a ghost town. Absolutely no one there. Called the office numerous times, finally someone answered the phone, I explained the situation and she tells me she has no idea what I'm taking about and she's an offsite answering service. Sent emails- no response, so after 40 minutes, we took off. We got a call from Sue, she explained that she had no idea she was supposed to be meeting us! She offered to come there, but we were already long gone. An hour later I receive an email from Cindi basically saying "sorry, mistakes happen". 6 hours of driving for no reason. So unprofessional and disrespectful!
