This hotel had a luxury resort price tag, but not the luxury amenities we found at other comparable hotels where we stayed, and it was at least one hundred dollars more a night. It seemed like we were being charged extra for the rustic ambiance. There was no offer of help with our luggage which had to be carried a distance, because it couldn't roll on the gravel paths. There were no phones, so if you needed anything, you had to go to the main building to request it. The internet didn't quite reach into our cabin, so we had to keep going outside to connect. The wood in the fireplace was wet, and so it was hard to keep a fire going. There was no hot tub, sauna or pool, useful after a day of hiking, although there was a very large bath tub. The bathroom did not have those little extra things like a make up mirror or qtips. Individually, these complaints are quite unimportant compared to the privacy and charm of the place, but it does leave us uncomfortable and unhappy about the high cost of staying there.
I loved the little private cabins with their fireplaces and rustic decor. Their food was delicious. We had breakfast, tea and cookies, and dinner there. The restaurant and lounge areas were lovely and cozy, and the hotel is perfectly situated on a roaring river near great hiking trails.
