The dining was mediocre at best but we came to ski. Went into town one night for dinner and it was very nice.

Clean room. Great view. Friendly staff! Great value for the price.

The nature area around the resort is quiet and well-kept, and the views of the Mississippi River are fantastic. Be careful - on some (not all) rooms, there is an extra charge if more than one person is travelling.(?) Also, there is no free breakfast included. The restaurant food was good and it wasn't too pricey. I liked the disc golf activity and the alpine slide.

Slightly outdated but wonderful beds and amazing views!

If peace and quiet is your desire, this is the place. A beautiful setting in the summer overlooking the great Mississippi river. Unfortunately we were a week early to partake of the alpine sled but maybe next time. The hotel is older but well maintained and clean. Could use an elevator

Great location, good food, friendly staff but the pool /hot tub was unusable/unkept.

Great stay during the fall Season. Was hoping the alpine slide would’ve been available yet.

Views were amazing. Staff and rooms were “OK” $199 per night for the rooms and amenities are a bit ambitious

Front desk staff was unattractive. The breakfast restaurant was mediocre..: wouldn’t recommend. I checked out and no one came to check me out.. instead I left the key cards and waved at the people at the their desks. Wasn’t impressed.

We enjoyed our stay at Chestnut Mountain Resort. There are few fun things you can do on the resorts property - zip line, hiking, beautiful views on the river, boat rides

Lots of options for active people

Views of the river are great; food in the restaurant is good; everyone was very friendly; fun family activities.

Very convenient for a skier, the staff is the most friendlier I have seen.Thank you.We will be back soon.

Very nice outside seating with beautiful views of the Mississippi River and fall foliage.

Hi Milica, Thank you for letting us know about your stay. While there is a charge in some rooms for a view of the river, we no longer charge for additional people in the room. As you booked through a 3rd party, I don't know if the booking company you booked through has additional fees on their end. I'm glad you were able to enjoy some of our activities during your stay. I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.

Hello Bernadette, Unfortunately as the weather turns colder and we have to get ready for our ski season we close many of our outside activities the third weekend of October. Activities open again Memorial Day weekend. We thank you for staying with us and hope you'll visit us again next year.
