This is a really rustic lodge with rooms that were very recently remodeled. I loved the feel of this place. I'm a city-boy at heart but while staying here I felt like I was living out in the boondocks. The room was clean and comfortable...More

Very beautiful lodge, in which we stayed at while on a Globus Tour. We asked for ADA room, and it was as requested, with everything you need. Convenient lobby and breakfast area. Decor was great, goes right along with the area.
