We have stayed at the resort two years in a row. Each time we have been underwhelmed with the accommodations. Last year the gave us a 2nd floor room overlooking the parking lot. This time we were told they were pretty full and only offered a first floor room. The room they offered was 137, the room next to the staircase and restaurant/bar. We saw the location and asked for another room. The second room was an accessible room on the first floor in a quieter location. The room was ok, nothing fancy, just plain white walls. The room was small and they need to be more soundproofed. The room needed some updates, ac was noisy and cracks in the shower tile. The sink is located in the bedroom area and the toilet and shower are in a separate room that can be closed off. For this price I hope they will improve the rooms. The rooms were clean, no carpets on my floor. I would recommend bringing ear plugs if you are sensitive to noise. The reason for the 3 stars is the location. It is on a nice golf course on rolling hills. You can not see the lake for the rooms, and to access the lake you have go over a hill or so. There are lots of walking trails and many birds and other wildlife. Good place for a wedding. They also have tennis courts, pickleball courts, ice rink and an indoor pool. This resort is located about 15 minutes from town so plan accordingly or eat at the resort. The food was average and cocktails were average too.

I rarely write reviews but this was a different level of disappointment. This should have been a great experience for the price but it was AWFUL. Pros: 1. Golf course was amazing and greens were challenging. 2. Morgan at the Ruddy Duck was on top of it and very friendly. In general, all staff on the property were friendly. Cons: 1. Pet friendly room smelled HORRIBLE. For a pet fee, I expect this to be as clean as other rooms. The room had several stains, spiders, and the rug looked straight out of a dumpster. Again, the smell was so bad I couldn’t sleep. The rest of the room wasn’t exactly dirty, just not clean either. Water pressure was great but tub backed up to ankles during showers. 2. Lunch service at the Ruddy Duck was slow and the fish tacos were burned and inedible. We sat at the bar 1 hour and 45 minutes just for a drink and 2 meals. 3. I booked a pedicure for my daughter and I 1 month in advance. I received a call 3 hours prior that someone called in so it was cancelled- they could not fit us in until 11 days later. 4 Communication about facilities and services was awful. Tried to wash a load of laundry (which required quarters). Front desk, restaurant, and market didn’t have quarters. Wanted to swim and the pool closed early for 4th of July (nobody told us this at check in nor when we called for pool hours). 5. The patio ‘pine view’ room was a spider-infested concrete pad with a literal bush blocking our view to the parking lot. We travel a lot and are happy to pay for quality. This was beyond disappointing for a fee of$700 for 2 nights.

What a lovely, charming slice of heaven. I can't say enough about the kindness and professionalism of the staff at Running Y. My spa experience was exceptional. What a special place, and such kind, caring staff. My treatments were really wonderful. The hydrafacial was just , wow! The massage knocked me out for a cool 9 hours of sleep. Thank You, Thank You for the experience, I hope to come back!

Beautiful, peaceful. R and R for all ages. Golf, spa, restaurant and bar all top flight. We have stayed often and in almost every season. The rooms are spacious and clean. We like one with a deck:). Dog-friendly as well. We would highly recommend.
