We were scheduled for a tour which we thought was for the hotel. Was immediately put off by trailer park near the entrance. Met some folks in the parking lot who informed us that the "tour" was a three hour strong arm sales pitch for condos. We left.

We wanted to getaway from our regular hustle and bustle of life. This place was perfect! Everyone seemed really nice and when we missed the candlelight dinner the manager was nice enough to save us some cheese cake. We would definitely go again!
