This lodge is in a beautiful location. We checked into our room & immediately I checked the beds for cleanliness as I always do. The bedspreads were very worn & old. Surprisingly the sheets were damp on both beds & they had feathers on them which I assume were from the pillows. The bathroom was not very clean either. Because... More

The rooms were "alright"... less average than what we expected. The view, however, was amazing. Hiking to the Natural Bridge (which is all the rage) was nice, and the view from the bridge was breathtaking! At the lodge, the service was RIDICULOUSLY horrible. The management is uptight and not sincere, the staff treats people as if they are only there... More

When I made reservations here for $59 a night (midweek rate) I did not expect much. Boy were we surprised. It was a very large room with an over sized balcony. Though not new it was well maintained and clean. The restaurant served some very tasty dinners and breakfast at reasonable prices. The staff were a pleasure to deal with.... More

Older lodge, but convenient to natural bridge. Trails easily accessible. Staff knowledgeable of surrounding attractions, area, and extremely friendly. Rooms could use updating, but other than that, a beautiful lodge, all in all. Nice sitting areas, warm and inviting, has an excellent on premises restaurant with the best food to the area, hands down. Hoedown island has weekend clogging, the... More

We had a great time at the lodge. The rooms were very nice, the only reason I gave a 4 for cleanliness was because the bathroom could have used a little work. The lodge food was good and we ate there and at Miguel's pizza the whole week. I am happy we chose the lodge. The pics online show outdated... More

This is a great place to stay. I have been coming here for over 30 years. The food is great and the rooms are clean with great views. All of the staff are so friendly with advise on where to hike and things to see.

Great place to hike and explore the mountains. They have the most comfortable beds we have ever found in a state park. Friendly service. Nice getaway! We plan on going back and try one of the cottages next time

While the park was beautiful and our room was nice ( the floors were a little dirty) I was so frustrated. We payed a premium to stay on the park and to have a pet friendly room. Then I found out your not aloud to take you pet out to the woods. I am just so frustrated and disappointed. A... More

I live in Lexington and close enough to Natural Bridge to make it a one day trip. We always plan a trip in the fall for the mountain colors and stop at the lodge for lunch. I was there today, had lunch and was totally disappointed. The entrees were fried chicken, fried fish, and meatloaf. The chicken had been fried... More

Our lodge room smelled musty and moldy. Mold was on the bathtub tile caulking and ceiling. Spider crawling on the sheet when we pulled the cover back. The room was a remodeled room but still looks like it is stuck in the 50s. Restaurant food was not worth eating-go elsewhere. The pool is a really far walk. You go down... More
