Great communication from start to finish. All of my questions answered quickly and to my satisfaction. All rental and payment policies were very clearly explained and easy to understand. NO SURPRISES! Cabin was clean and instantly comfortable upon arrival. The few needs we had while renting were met immediately and with smiles from the people sent out. Kitchen was overwhelmingly stocked with everything we needed and more. In fact, a few empty cupboards to put our food in would have been welcomed. Bedrooms were great! Futons folded out to comfortable full size beds. Hot tubs were wonderful and ready to go right away. Pool was a short walk down the hill and used several times by our group. There are only a few things we could comment on are: -There was no provision for recycling which our family feels strongly about. -A few of the towel holders fell off the wall in separate bathrooms. -Nicer towels would have been greatly appreciated. All in all, 40 out of 40 people attending our family reunion LOVED the Big Elk Lodge. I would be happy to talk further with anyone if more feedback is desired. Terry Schordock

We had rented a "View for all Seasons" but it had some issue and Hearthside called upgraded us to the "Elk Lodge". What a fantastic place the Elk Lodge is for a family reunion. I am sorry I don't remember Barbara last name but she helped me with a caterer for our reunion. She put us in touch with Pat and Steve Wright with Wright Stuff Catering and they did an outstanding job. Thanks Hearthside for making our family reunion a great memory!

We had a great experience at Big Elk Lodge. Everything was wonderful. The rooms was great and everything we needed to make this retreat a success was at our fingertips. Thanks to your staff for making this trip easy for us. Our church is pleased with the service we received and we will definitely be using your company again.

The Big Elk Cabin was fabulous, very spacious and beautiful. My only suggestion would be to somehow add a second stove/oven and a second refrigerator on the main level. We had 16 couples in our party and running up and down to cook food for everyone was not ideal. But overall it was an absolutely wonderful weekend and the amenities this cabin offered helped to make it wonderful.
