    Beautiful Property - One Negative

    Property was beautiful. Staff courteous and helpful. We were not able to take advantage of a lake view room (pet friendly rooms were park view). Lobby cozy with a great view. I'd like to come back in more temperate weather when I have time to take advantage of the grounds and hiking areas. Room was clean. Pool was huge. One and only complaint was the shower. Extremely low pressure provided what felt like a dribble of less than hot water. Paired with a slow drain, this made for a suboptimal visit after arriving late in the day. I could have contacted the desk for the drain issue, but the water pressure and temperature were not something that could be immediately addressed. I'll admit I'm overly critical of this issue, but on a short stay, it is a big part of the time spent. Hopefully all the rooms are not similarly affected. The setting and property is worth a second try.
