I saw the negative reviews from earlier, and can't discount those. I do know that the property has been sold sometime in '08, and I personally had a very nice stay there. It is now called the Black Mountain Lodge. I stayed in one of the 2 new cabins they had brought in. Being new, I had no complaints on the cabin. It was clean and comfortable. I'd go again with no 2nd thoughts. The hotel is conveniently located within the town of Van Buren, close to stores and places to eat. The service at the hotel was good as well.
This was a terrible place to stay in. The bathroom floor was rotten, the carpet was stained, the smell, well, the smell was not pleasant. I do not recommend. Hopefully they will remodel soon.
