We stayed at Mission Point Resort at the end of September for five nights. We paid around $100 for each queen room, each night. It is a little bit of a walk out of the town center, but if you don't mind, it's actually quite nice and the grounds of the resort are really lovely. And of course the horse carriage taxis are always available to hire, too. We found the interior of the lodge impressive and very interesting. Old photos showing its construction were fascinating, and the huge wooden beams were breathtaking. Cozy fireplaces blazing away were also a nice touch, and we spent every evening playing train dominoes down in the lobby next to a fireplace. We were also very pleased with our rooms and found their decor and cleanliness to be of a high level. They are on the smaller size for an American room, with the bathrooms being particularly "cozy," but it was fine. The shower was powerful and hot, even during peak times. My only complaint about the room was that early in the morning, when guests in other rooms were showering, the pipes would make a very, very loud noise and wake us up.
We had breakfast every morning in the restaurant ordering off of the menu and skipped the buffet as it seemed a little pricey and we couldn't eat enough to make it a good value. On the other hand, ordering off of the menu also wasn't cheap. We were also a little confused as to what came with the pancakes as some mornings it came with bacon or sausage, and some mornings it didn't. My husband also was offered a refill on his juice one morning, and then wasn't on the next day. The staff were all fairly pleasant to very friendly, so no complaints there.
Another note on the food options: at this time of the year, the only nighttime food options at the resort are the upscale Italian restaurant, and the cafe that serves slices of pizza, salads and deli sandwiches. We weren't interested in the Italian restaurant so we never ate there, and we ate at the cafe one evening when we were too tired to go into town. We ordered big chef salads which were just fine. In general, we tried to avoid being stuck at the resort in the evenings as those were our only food options and we felt it would have been nice if a "middle of the road" sort of restaurant with more affordable entrees had been open. (I think there is one in the summer season).
The grounds of the property are absolutely beautiful, and we really enjoyed wandering all around. We also took advantage of renting bicycles one day from the resort, so that was really convenient having them there to rent.
All in all, we were very pleased with our experience and felt that at this time of year it was good value for the money and a very nice place to stay.
