Stayed there a couple of weeks ago for the second time. This time in a separate cabin. These cabins were most likely great once upon a time but not without adequate electrify, updated beds and furnishings, and decor. The food service has also declined from our previous visit which we praised the chef. This time mor like pre prepared from... More

We went up here for the day to relax on a Sunday. We ate at the restaurant. When we got there you can smell a great burger and it was, so were the fries. Well worth going to eat. We walked around the cabins and the shore line. Would be a nice place to spend a week, hike and fish.... More

Rustic with a style all it's own. We have been going up there for YEARS. Great for all ages. Marvelous restaurant, store and staff. SO many things to do in the immediate area. Lake is peaceful and canoes and kayaks available for rent. Horses across the lake. NO, you can't use a hair dryer because it will blow a fuse.... More

Quaint cottages with balcony overlooking a beautiful lake. Movies under the stars and an excellent restaurant with friendly staff. The general store is fun too . Even have Wi-Fi way up there. The manager went out of her way to make sure it was working. One slight problem is the fact that no hair dryers can be used in the... More

We just came back from our third stay at KCL, and we will return. The owners have recognized the problems of last season and have made an effort to increase hospitality, and it shows. We were always greeted by the staff, and made to feel welcome. It's a low key place where you can participate with activities or just do... More

We stopped at the Kit Carson Lodge and General Store to purchase food on our way to the trailhead to hike. The cashier at the store was very rude and inhospitable. After paying for our items, we asked if there was a restroom we could use (we had been driving for hours). The clerk rudely told us we could go... More

This lodge is on a beautiful lake and could be a great destination if it weren't for the awful owners. The place is billed as historic but in reality it is extremely run down and in need of major repairs. Rooms and cabins have broken fixtures, torn up window screens, rattling sliding doors, rotten decks, metal shower inserts from the... More

Although the countryside is sublime it couldn't make up for the very rude treatment at the front desk on our check in date, or the dirty room we stayed in. We booked weeks in advance and they failed to tell us that their restaurant is closed on Mondays and that the nearest place to eat is over 5 miles away.... More

We have stayed at Kit Carson Lodge with our friends for many years, starting when our children were very young. They are now in their 20's and still love coming back to this wonderful place. The owners have changed in the last few years, and we were pleased with the seamless change of ownership. They are keeping up with the... More

We did the living social deal and we went in expecting rustic. Rustic as in no TV, cell reception, etc. We did not know that it is also prohibited to use blowdryers until we got there and read the paper handed to us by the girl at the front desk who hardly said two words to us. If a blowdryer... More
