We hosted our daughter's wedding on the propertyy. The owner and caretaker are wonderful to work with and very accomodating. The property is beautiful and secluded, exactly what we were looking for.
The indoor accomodations are not updated, and have issues because of the age of the buildings. The indoor areas were generally clean, though the accomodations are rough. This is a great spot to gather a large group of people who are not looking for hotel quality indoors, but really want to enjoy the outdoors. The kitchen is huge, lots of counter space; plan on bringing large bowls or other equipment needed to feed a crowd. There is one working oven, which was a challenge, but plenty of fridge space. The cabins are 100 or so years old, and very beautiful, if rustic, on the inside. There is a winding area of steps built into the mountain inside one of the buildings that leads to several bedrooms which the kids loved.
The outdoor areas are well maintained. There are fire pits in several areas and plenty of fire wood available on the property to collect - bring a chainsaw. We rented golf carts for the weekend, very helpful with the hills and distance between the play areas.
Unfortunately, there were issues with the septic system due to the amount of rain from a recent hurricane, and the tents and dance floor were in the problem area and had to be moved mid-reception. This could be avoided by asking best placement for the tents. Wifi is available, coverage is spotty, which we expected because of the seclusion. This place is great for "glamping", remembering there will always be issues with older accomodations.
Overall, we felt this was the perfect place for our daughter's wedding. There was space to host the wedding party and close family onsite, though they need to be able to take stairs. We had plenty of time to prepare, plenty of beautiful places to play and lots of counter space to work. Pat and Bob did all they could to make the weeknd run smoothly for us, but we still had our privacy. The price is right, and in spite of some issues, we feel is was a great value for the weekend and would book this beautiful, rustic venue again without hesitation.
