Lake Eden Lodge is unlike anyplace I have ever stayed. It is very quaint, clean, well maintained. Each cabin has its own unique personality. We stayed in the Treetops cabin. Rustic and small. But what a view!! Sitting on the deck in the morning, cup of coffee in hand, listening to the nearby creek and birds galore singing away. You can see the mountains through the trees, and if you follow the trail that runs along the creek, you will end up in a lawn area where you can see the mountains in full view.
The only unexpected experience was a children's camp just down the hill from the cabin. I love to hear happy kids, so it wasn't that big of a deal. Also, during the week, there is an active quarry nearby, and for just a few hours a day you can hear the blasting off in the distance. It wasn't awful, but just something to be aware of. We were usually gone for most of the day, and came back to the cabin with peace and quiet.
The care that the cabins receive is apparent. The hosts, Leigh and Sky, were very friendly and welcoming. The creativity and artistic touches can be felt throughout the property. I highly recommend giving it a try and I know that we will go back.
