No justice can be done do this place with a mere photo. It's wow.
This is the restaurant, decorated for Christmas.
The amazing Gold Rush Restaurant
A picture cannot capture the joy that bubbles out of this place. The food is wonderful, with home grown beef and pork. Deeper into this restaurant, there's a ballroom dance floor, a live band, and a lot of locals who can really cut a rug.
I loved this stained glass rose. Looks like it's from Beauty and the Beast
The pool and spa area is superlative. It is a walk-in pool. Walking in feels like a warm beach minus the sand. There is a bar beside the pool. Drinks are excellent. Service is practically royal. At night, when the pool and bar are lit, it's ultra romantic. It's also not pictured because I did not bring my camera swimming. Guess you have to see it to believe it.
The Copper Cafe is great in its own right. It's unique from the restaurant.
There's an awesome horseback riding package. We rode up the mountain with a sweet, informative guide - just the three of us. It was a gorgeous ride. The weather was a lovely accompaniment, sunny with a light breeze. I think sunnies or a cowboy hat could help out on an average day.
