Only a short visit this time, but always enjoy whatever time we have at this resort. Staff wherever they are are friendly and helpful. Just walking around the resort and enjoying the nature leaves one with a sense relaxation and peace.

There is a handful of eateries just down the road at Perry's Bridge. Further up the same road (heading out of Hazyview) is Summerfields Retreat and Spa, which has positive reviews, though we have not tried it yet.
