Needed a quick place to stay since crossing over the 4 was still closed due to snow. The innkeeper Coleen was very sweet. Showed the girl an I two options for rooms. We picked queen bed with fireplace. Toasty!! Very clean, neat rooms. Bed was comfortable. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

My complaints are that the bed was pretty hard and the walls are pretty thin noise-wise. But I rarely like hotel beds anyway, and it wasn't the Lodge's... More

I booked this based on 5 star tripadvisor reviews but then saw the most of the reviewers had reviewed only this place. I was worried going in. We stayed here one night and didn't get good night sleep. Beds were really hard. There is a bar next to it and I heard it get noisy sometimes, luckily it was quiet.... More
