Then we were shown to our Premier suite, which was pure luxury and over looked the river. It had a huge living area, bedroom, bathroom, including outdoor shower, and... More

Once we arrived we were blown away by the facility and... More

This facility is nice because of Shelley and Sean. They have managed the lodge carefully with a focus on quality. They have hired well and trained very effectively. Every employee we encountered made us feel sincerely welcome. The individual lodges are very nice and spacious. We particularly liked the outdoor (very private) shower in addition to the indoor shower. There... More
