Before we realized we could have used Airbnb or VRBO we made reservation based on suggestion on the Wedding Website. Big Mistake. First the resort is a mega mega resort with so many 'lodging' options that you need a handbook to decode what are the offerings. We choose a King Bed room which had a mini kitchen which is usually a great option. The entry way to the building smelled like damp ice hockey equipment room. The hallway and the room carpeting is old, dark and dated with lots of stains that are clearly visible. When we were unpacking we found we were sharing the room with silverfish. When reported to the Front Desk their response was "Sorry". The double curtains on the window were not wide enough to cover the width of the window making it look like a frat room. This was specifically annoying as it was a ground floor room which looked out on a busy walkway. The air conditioner is the old style unit with filters that need replacing and the unit is just not efficient and most likely spreads airborne mold. You could feel some of the springs in the bed and the bedding was quite basic. There was a 2 night minimum stay and we had no housekeeping. We did ask for extra towels.
The Inn is not ADA compliant or even friendly. The food in the Copper Kettle was pedestrian but there are no other options.
I also find an $8 Resort fee annoying and unless you state at check in that you do not want to donate $1 to the Nature Fund it is charged to your folio. I had very modest expectations for this 'resort' but I was still extremely disappointed. The resort is showing its age and use. Perhaps when everything is covered in white snow it looks more appealing???
Buyer Beware for the Mountain Inn
