We stayed in one of the cottages rooms for our 25th anniversary. We had pre-paid for 3 nights and ended up leaving after 2. This place has the potential to be great, but a few things just ruined it for us. The major thing was the bed, and this was the primary reason we left early. The mattress was so...

My DH's family gather here every Thanksgiving & we stay several days & my MIL rents a conference room for our celebration. Our stay is always pleasant, comfortable & welcoming. The decor is kitschy & a little over the top, but since everything else is top-notch, should be forgiven.

Wow is the one word to describe my stay. Making personal reservations was easy. The look and layout of the hotel surprised me in a wonderful way. Bed was comfy, room was quiet, hallway traffic was minimal, continental breakfast was fantastic with change to main entree each morning.

Our party consisted of 12 people and three dogs. We had never traveled before with mothers oxygen in tow. Needless to say- Sydney at the front desk made our stay so comfortable. From her warm greeting at check in to helping settle everyone by the fireplace-she did it all with a smile. She was instrumental in helping us eat our...

Yet another excellent stay! The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, as usual! Room was clean but the shower curtain did have a few stains on it (hence only 4 stars) but nothing major that really bothered me. As always, I highly recommend, especially since the free breakfast is great!

Took our daughter there with some friends for her birthday. Got one of the rooms with bunk beds. Room was fine if not a little dingy. My main complaint comes with the treatment the girls received in the pool area. Water in the main pool was FREEZING so the girls went to the hot tub to warm up. They were...

hawkmft, We have addressed this situation with our staff already. Our maintenance team is checking out the pool area to make sure the heater is functioning properly. The State of Iowa does set the age limit on hot tub use. We have cameras in the pool area so we can closely monitor it and make sure all of our guests...
