5 out of 5
Absolutely beautiful hotel, amazing staff and overall great experience. Our room was gorgeous. When we pulled up they had the grill going in the front and it definitely was a wonderful welcome. The staff were friendly, helpful and go the extra mile. Dinner our first night was "family style" which I was uncomfortable with at first, but was such a great experience and opened up communications with the other guests for the rest of our trip. The dining area is gorgeous. Our room was beautiful as well. I honestly want to mimic some features into our future home. We cannot wait to return and stay extra days. The roads are rough, but 100% would go again and this is the hotel to stay at.
