There was no one in the building to greet us for hours. I understand staff may be working elsewhere, but if they let us know that might happen, and just make ourselves at home until 6pm, that would have been good. Our friends who travelled with us felt the staff was not friendly. Also the food is hit or miss depending on who is cooking. The ingredients were very fresh, but some of the staff did not know how to cook. If you have the right attitude that you are at a working organic farm, and just pitch in to help instead of judge, you would have a good time. You need to remind them about your meal reservations, to ensure they have enough food, and any restrictions and preferences. The property trail is harder than it looks, steep, not totally maintained and was mosquito heaven, especially after a lot of rain. I would stay with the loop trail.
