There was no parking provided for guests there were no special privileges in terms of dinner lunch or breakfast, you had to wait in line sometimes up to 45 minutes for breakfast and up to two hours for dinner. Our waitress for lunch was the only exception to poor service

Amazing location. There is still work to do on acclimating to the conditions of COVID---their figuring out how to feed guests with "social distancing" conditions isn't quite right yet. Long waits to get into dining room, etc.
