We could not have had a nicer two nights than we had at Quiet Walker Lodge. Kathie warmly welcomed us by name and gave us a tour of the grounds. We stayed in the Lakota room which was fresh, roomy and comfortable. I loved the crispy sheets on the bed! Each day, we received a plate of freshly baked cookies.... More

Phill and Kathy were wonderful hosts! I have a feeling that many our our future anniversaries will be spent at the Quiet Walker Lodge!

The Quiet Walker Lodge was a peaceful retreat at a beautiful location. We arrived on a rainy day and the innkeepers greeted us with umbrellas! Our room was spacious, incredibly clean, and had all of the extra amenities you may need. Breakfast was delicious and surpassed all other B&B experiences we have had. We enjoyed every minute of our stay... More
