Great area to visit and lots to do. If you plan to cook in the rooms with a kitchen, be sure to check on what items are available. We were missing several items and had to make several calls to get what we needed. The room did not meet our expectations as far as cleanliness goes. The room itself was great as well as the amenities.
We took advantage of the 99.00/night offer for "locals." We only stayed one night at the lodge but it was so relaxing we felt like it had been and entire weekend. Our room was nicely decorated and very comfortable. Add to that a fireplace and beautiful view...perfect.
