First hint - make your reservation a year in advance - as soon as the window opens for reserving rooms. If you miss that, then wait until about a month before your intended visit and start checking every day, several times a day. People can cancel their reservations up to 48 hours in advance with no penalty, so if you... More

Was very pleasantly surprised by the entire experience from check in to dining at the Lodge Restuarant. The service is outstanding and the experience is one I wish I could share with my entire family. Definitely did not want to leave.

Sure this hotel does not have the bells and whistles one normally expects from a 5 star hotel, but the chance to stay in this awesome piece of living history far exceeds even a 5 star rating. The moment you enter the 7 story lobby, you are left speechless. Nothing is as grand as this grand old lady, and we... More

This beautiful old rustic inn speaks to you immediately of a bygone era where the railroad rule the tourist trade. The sheer size of it is impressive but we so enjoyed the feel of it blending in with the surroundings. We did not stay in the rooms, just enjoyed the lobby and surrounding areas.

Let me start with the good: the hotel is impressive, the old structure, the rustic feel, the craftmanship - definitely recommend to see. We have stayed in the old part of the hotel, so we had to share a bathroom and a shower. everything was kept clean and we had no issues with it - it was better than expected.... More

While the hotel is historic and well maintained, the rooms are very small, dimly lit and poorly arranged, such that one walks and walks and walks down dark corridors to get to your room. The rooms are over priced. Staying in the cabins in my view is more practical.

The main (old) building is spectacular. Over 100 years old and the architecture and wood construction is to marvel at. But if you stay in the old building you have to share a bathroom. Not so bad but still (they provide very nice robes, but for those of us who have to get up in the middle of the night...).... More

The cabins were of a okay size and contained everything you needed. It's a joke you have to pay for internet in the day and age but good in a way to just take in the surroundings. Would stay again.

For building buffs, this is a must. Stroll through the various parts of the lobby, rooms, restaurant and deck. Workmanship like you've never seen anywhere.

The first time I remember hearing a lot about this lodge was during the summer of 1988 when the fires were raging out of control in the park. I still have the picture of the National Geographic with the fires knocking on the front door of the lodge. Its really a neat well built building. The inside is incredible
