Cabin exceeded our expectations. Very attractive interior. Well maintained and very clean. We were also surprised that the food served at the restaurant was much better than expected. Would definitely recommend Cedar Pass Lodge. Staff all very pleasant.
We stayed overnight at Cedar Pass Lodge, and wish we could have stayed longer. The cabins are comfortable, with attractive decor, and the views are amazing. We had one of the single cabins (some are duplexes) towards the rear of the grounds, away form the road, and it was nice and quiet.Check in was at 3 pm, but reception closed at 5 pm, so there was a pretty narrow window to obtain your key! The onsite restaurant also closed at 5.00 pm during our October stay, but we found a good sports bar (The Horseshoe Bar) in the nearby town of Interior. The only real downside is the cost, which at US$179/night in the off-season is pretty expensive, even for a National Park.
