This was our second visit to Savage River but our first experience with a yurt. Last time we stayed in a cabin, so we thought we would try something different. There are 8 yurts on the property. They are beautiful inside with heated floors, king-sized beds, a gas fireplace, and a nice bathroom with a shower. It is very cosy... More

Only rating this four stars because the restaurant could really use some help. Our experience with the food wasn't awful but the menu was small and they were out of about 3 of the main dishes, including the only chicken dish on the menu. Other than the restaurant our stay was amazing. We stayed in a yurt just for the... More

Stayed in Cabin #1 - It was lovely to just be together without the distractions of televisions, phones and internet. The breakfast basket each morning was such a nice touch. The food was wonderful and oh the hot chocolate to die for. In room massage was very relaxing. My only complaint was that it did not snow while we were... More

Within minutes of arriving, all the stress of our daily lives washes away. Cut out the cell phones, television and emails and you're left with perfect quiet. We have tried all the seasons and keep going back. The staff and owners are lovely. We loves the cabins so much that we haven't even tried the yurts.

Yurt #4. My fiance and I have stayed here twice and loved it both times! I have a lot of trouble focusing on the present and coming here always forces me to do so. We had the pleasure of meeting Mike this past stay and he seemed like a very down to earth guy. The yurts come equipped with a... More

Nice escape from nearby cities. Cabins are staggered along one road and yurts are in separate area- we stayed in cabin #8. Cabin rooms are spacious, including the bathroom. Having 2 sinks is very convenient. Hot water was hot. The coffee and tea making setup was convenient. The gas heater supplemented by electric baseboard heaters kept the place toasty warm.... More

Went here on a whim for my 30th birthday with my boyfriend. It was the perfect peaceful and unplugged getaway we didn't even know we needed. I can't wait to go back. The only drawback is the drive to get there from the Philadelphia area. But totally worth it.

We stayed two nights over a holiday weekend, excited to get away from the city. Our stay was fine, without any major hiccups, but we were underwhelmed. The cabins had such potential to be perfect, but there just seemed to be things missing; a chair or two at the fireplace and some rugs would have made it very cozy. We... More

We stayed recently at the Savage River Lodge for several days at the time of our daughter's graduation from FSU. The Cottages are nice and roomy, the equipping of the rooms just normal. It is a very relaxing atmosphere. It is very expensive though so money should not be an object, but I knew that in advance of course. The... More

A leisurely drive through the woods a bit off the beaten path for sure. The menu reads as though one is going to a fine foreign restaurant with several romantic sounding entrees and the prices to match. I went here not sure what to expect as I had read both positive and negative reviews. Leave your cell phone at home... More
