Guest Recommendations
"The only objection I had, and I called the manager regarding this, was when I called orginally I was told there were no vacancies. Thinking this odd for the third week of June I booked on line and received an immediate confirmation of my request. The manager when asked about this came up with a good response and offered any assistance in accomodating myself and my family. I'm glad I tried booking online instead of relying solely on the person making reservations at the resort. Really enjoy the resort, we have been visiting for the past ten years. Sincerely, Thome Muir"
