          Our stay at the Kern Lodge exceeded our expectations for a clean and comfy place to stay. The staff accommodated us and our two, older dogs, very well. We love this place and will be back to room 203 as soon as we are able.

          Any recommendations for a family traveling with teenage boy and girl? Need separate bedrooms for kids and quiet for adults to relax. Have read both good and bad reviews and am concerned about the 'bad' service/attitude. It's been awhile since we've had a vacation - so, we're looking for some good outdoor fun and relaxation in the evenings... Thanks!
