“ The staff and accommodation was out of this world. The bellman Andy was so delightful and informative. He never forgot our nam s and always went out of he way to speak. The front desk personnel was so courteous and informative. Always smiling and always speaking making you feel at home. The restaurants were over the top. The manager in restaurant Windows gave the best hugs, made you feel like you were in her home and she was so glad to have you there. The restaurant, Bullfrogs, food and staff were fabulous. They staff at the snow village were all so happy and friendly. The kids were entertained the entire day, from crafts, to movies with popcorn and hot chocolate, scavenger hunts and great prizes. At the stables my 8 year old granddaughter was treated like a queen. Her trail ride was so amazing. She loved her horse Domino. They even had the pool heated for all the guest. There were huge fire pits everywhere with s'mores and hot chocolate. This was so much more than I expected. That Sunday night we had reservations at the American girl hotel and my 8 year old granddaughter asked to stay another night here instead, so we did and I loved her decision. It was better than Disney and the price was great. Can't wait to go back!”
