The staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful, waving, nodding, and acknowledging all guests they passed as they walked, biked or drove around the property. When we arrived, we didn’t even have to get out of our car to check in, the valet gave us our keys, directions to our cabin, and we were on our way.
We wound up staying in a cabin with a lakeside view, just a short walk away from the main lodge. This was one of the cabins that had already been renovated, although it appeared in places, such as the door frames, that it could use another coat of paint. The cabin itself was fairly spacious, although the furnishings were not our tastes, as they seemed a bit dated. Although we didn't have much opportunity to use it during our stay, the deck was a nice touch, allowing guests to sit outside and just enjoy the view of the lake.

The level of service provided by the staff was inspiring. The female human was particularly impressed as she spent almost 8 years working at Starbucks, who have a fairly high customer service standard. At Starbucks, their customer service skills included the “Just say yes” policy, in order to ensure no customer left unsatisfied. In order to elevate the customer experience, Starbucks partners also had a customer service model built around the keywords “Anticipate, Connect, Personalize, and Own”, in order to make every customer that walked through the door feel as though they were more than just another customer.
