After staying here previously for our 5 year anniversary, my husband and I decided to return for a quick getaway. We stayed in a different style cabin this time and had a great time. The hot tub worked great; no issues what so ever. We stayed at the Countryside Deluxe cabin this time and I did not enjoy it as much as the Cupid's Hideout. The bathroom in the Countryside Deluxe cabin was a bit dark and outdated but everything worked fine. There also wasn't much space to hang up clothing. Other than that, the buffet style breakfast was good. We also ordered food from the restaurant; the quesadillas were good but the wings weren't that great. I will probably return again but will definitely go back to the Cupid's Hideout cabin as I enjoyed the layout much better.

Hotel's Favorite
We were very concerned about travel with the virus getting worse in Florida and Georgia. But, after calling Forrest Hills, they assured me they were taking it very seriously. So, having been before and enjoying the facilities, we decided to go again. We had another wonderful 4 days there. The breakfast buffet was no longer serve yourself, but servers with masks and gloves serving the guests. Housekeeping did not come to room after the initial check in, but anything you needed was provided. The resort looked great, pool was open, flowers everywhere. Again, this place gives great value for a multiple day stay.

Forrest Hills Resort will forever hold a special place in my heart. Last Friday, we got married in the larger gazebo in the wedding garden and it was hands down the best day of our lives! In the morning, my bridesmaids and I got ready on-site in the newly renovated bridal suite, which was done so beautifully and comfortably fit nine people (including the hair and makeup ladies and their items). While I waited for my turn in the salon chair, I went outside to find a perfect first look spot for my bridal party reveal and for my dad's reveal. Right around the corner, where they do elopements, there is a beautiful garden and mini gazebo that turned out to be the perfect location. The pictures came out phenomenal! For my first look with my fiancé, we chose to drive up to the front of the resort where there's a bridge and beautiful big trees which also turned out to be incredible photo locations! The ceremony stole my heart. I was pulled in on a horse and carriage and the feeling you have as your guests and soon-to-be husband look at you when you're pulled in for the grand entrance is heart-stopping. I truly felt like a princess. The ceremony location is breathtaking and the whole garden is manicured perfectly. We had extra time after we did our family photos and when they asked if we wanted to join the cocktail hour I said no because I just wanted to soak in the beauty of the garden. Our reception took place in the Rose Garden, which was also newly renovated and they did an incredible job! The best part is everything is included; the tables, the chairs, the linens, the lanterns, the cake stand, and set up and take down. But WOW, the food! I have to stop and rave about the food. The salad, the mashed potato bar, the prime rib, the spaghetti (yes I risked it even in my dress and it was SO worth it) were all fantastic. Many of our guests got up for seconds! But what I really loved most about Forrest Hills was Levi Hansard. Levi is a GEM at Forrest Hills and we could not have done any of this or had a perfectly smooth and magical day without him. I have known Levi for two years because we postponed due to Covid and he is so patient, kind, funny, and will happily answer all of your questions. We had our rehearsal the day before our wedding, also at Forrest Hills, and so we were able to bring in some of our decor ahead of time and he helped us set it up. His eye for detail is impeccable! He made tweaks and suggestions that made the reception room look so elegant, I'm so grateful he was there to guide us towards the best decisions. On the big day he checked up on me in the bridal suite a few times which I truly appreciated because, of course, I wanted to know how set up was going. After our ceremony, we were ahead of schedule and my husband and I headed back to the bridal suite so I could touch up and this is one of my favorite moments of the night, Levi and my wedding coordinator zoomed up in a golf cart with drinks from the bar and appetizers having a great time. I LOVED to see that even they were having fun and we chatted and laughed with them too. Knowing Levi for the last two years he's become more than just a vendor - he's part of our family and part of our story. Two of my favorite moments of the day are with him and to me that says so much more about Forrest Hills. Before we did our grand exit I gave him the biggest hug because we are so grateful to have met him. Levi, thank you for being you! If you're reading this and considering doing a wedding at Forrest Hills, DO IT! You are making the best decision, I promise!

We stayed at the Eagles Nest Lodge for a large family reunion and 50 year anniversary ceremony in the gazebo. Everything at Forrest Hills was terrific. Our group coordinator gave us very special attention and absolutely everything was outstanding. Every one of the families staying with us agreed. The food service at the restaurant was especially good. We hope to book another reunion here in coming years.

Long story short; paid $200 / night for the power to be out for 2.5 days, management / owners REFUSED to discount the rate given the fact there was no power. We paid extra for a cabin with hot tub only to have the power go out one day into our stay. Hoping the power would soon return, and given the peak time of year / no vacancies elsewhere, we reluctantly decided to stay. Given the cabin location it is extremely humid and requires a dehumidifier to run 24/7 in order to keep the humidity low enough to be comfortable. No power, extreme humidity, cold, and of course unable to use the upcharged hot tub. Being a ‘family owned’ business one would assume they would be glad to accommodate and surely understand the daily rate should be discounted due to the circumstances. WRONG. I asked once, they refused, and then feeling like I was being taken advantage of, I asked again. Rudely refused once again. The worst part is I would love to like this place. The location is nice, the cabin was decent, but the morally corrupt management and owners made our stay extremely unenjoyable.
