Location was gorgeous - great views when the rain stopped, would be amazing views in the non-winter weather. That said, it did not have any impact on our stay even though the weather wasn't too great it added to the experience, forcing us to relax and enjoy our time there. The hot tub was great and fire fantastic. Would definitely go back, really enjoyed our stay, very relaxing. Fresh bread was lovely as was the platters and breakfast we ordered.
