We spent this past weekend staying in a cabin for two nights and floating on Saturday. The float trip was wonderful...this did not make up for the awful experience we had at the cabin. We were promised two cabins with kitchenettes, air conditioning, and access to a hot tub. When we arrived they had trouble finding our reservation. When they...

We had a great time. Staff was very friendly and said if any problems to let them know and they would fix it. We will be going back in August and can not wait. They are always open to any suggestions and are slowing trying to update all the cabins.

We were lucky enough to stay in the Robin Room. This was supposed to be a 2 bedroom with a living room and kitchen and able to sleep 6. There was one bedroom and a kitchen and a bathroom. The carpets had stains that looked like feces and the air conditioner was so moldy I was surprised it even worked....

There was stool all over the toilet, stains on the toilet paper, toilet paper smeared in the shower, holes in the walls of the cabin, door didn't shut, overall disgusting! Would not recommend!! The canoes are all patched up, and missing cross bars.

They said 2 bedrooms, it was 1 bedroom. The mattresses were covered in pea stains without sheets. The room smelled of chemical and urine. The robin room should be called robbing you room. I am very upset. Puppies without leashes, keys didn't work. Spiderwebs everywhere. It wasn't just filthy it should be condemned. I don't understand why a health inspector...

Not cleaning meaning (mattresses stacked 10 high in one bedroom, broken mini blinds on nasty couches, dead bugs all over kitchen counter, light cover laying on mattress,hot tub nice and green and...

Dirty, no A/c (when told about it they said WE could leave WITHOUT our $1700), food was old and cold. The float was great the bus driver was great! Service and staff was rude and not accommodating for the amount of money spent for our fun weekend away.

The picture looked great and they offered a breakfast and dinner. The cabin was so dirty. Spider webs everywhere. The refrigerator did not work well so our stuff was not cold. The air condition did not work. The light in the main room went out Sat. night when nobody was there. Outside the cabin it had never been swept of...

We rented the "Brown Cottage" for a 2 night stay. The pictures they had emailed looked very nice, and the picture they sent of the river view taken from the deck was just beautiful, and was what sold us on it being a great place for a weekend getaway. As it turned out, that awesome river view was not so...
