Reviews and Comments

Kristi Steed (group sales coordinator) made every call a pleasure. The chef, all the servers, everyone worked so hard to give us great food, great service, and everyone appreciated it very much. Ken Zebo (program director) was always there to make every hike every activity perfect. My group cannot stop talking about how much fun they had and saying 'it was our greatest trip ever!'"

"Outstanding meals, lodging and fellowship. . . .Our cabin was so comfortable & far beyond of what one thinks of as a "cabin". . . . made the reunion one to remember & one that will never be matched."
