Where should I begin? With the screwed up reservation that was made for 3 days, changed to 4 days by phone call, and never really changed? With the overcharge for the 4th night from $116 to $175? How about never being given a bill when you leave because they were unable to prepare one? Or how about the lack of...

Friendly check in but the room was really quite shabby. Also a long walk to town along a road without a footpath. The free breakfast was terrible - cold reconstituted scrambled egg and poor quality sausages. Luke warm beige liquid as coffee. Nothing else even faintly hot. We were not late - it was only about 8.30 when we arrived...

We stayed in one of the cabins and had a quiet peaceful evening. It was clean and comfy. It's a little dated but that's the way it should be. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Pet friendly.

This place is a little old, a little worn, and a bit of a walk to downtown (15 mins), but I like it because it's quiet, dog friendly and near a creek. I enjoy the walk into town and if you upgrade to one of the chalets then you get a fantastic room for a small extra price.

Booked one night then added on an extra night when we checked in, but the transaction wasn't finalized, so the next day they wanted to kick us out of the room since they were now sold out. They did arrange for us to stay at their sister hotel 3 miles away, but I feel like they should have honored the...

We booked a chalet and it was great! Young lady at the front desk was very nice and helpful. Room was clean but could use an update. We will definitely stay here again when we need a place in the area for a night or two.

We have been staying here for about the last 12 years. I recently stayed in the cabins and had a very good stay. The cabins are free standing and have one bedroom, one bath, kitchen and living room. They have a free standing fireplace that can be used to heat the room. I had a very quit nights sleep and...

My wife and I decided to take a random road trip Christmas weekend and we needed a place to crash. Went on Expedia and this place came up. What a blessing that was! As soon as I got there I was greeted by the front desk attendant with a big Merry Christmas! His name tag said his name was Happy...

We stayed here while visiting Nevada City for Victorian Christmas. We generally had a pleasant stay in one of the one bedroom (single level) cabins. Cons: -no functioning wi-fi -disorganized if booking through third party online booking (definitely confirm your reservation, room and rate multiple times); they lost our reservation (this was a headache) -small shower stall -rooms are worn...

Arrived in the pouring rain to a rushing river going through the property. The property is beautiful. They have a pool and hot tub, which we did not use but that looked very nice. Breakfast was included. Hot scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, assorted pastries, fruits and juices/coffee. Rooms are very basic and aged, but very clean. Cable tv had...
