We were a family of 7 and chose to stay in the Presidentail Condo. WOW, what a good choice! Kitchen was large, clean and beautiful, and the living area with fireplace was very large and super comfortable. Having two baths is great. The private courtyard was remarkable, roomy and well layed out, complete with a nice big grill. Probably what... More

The condo had a fool kitchen, fireplace, living room, and king bed. You can buy firewood and or log from the front desk. The staff was helpful and friendly. Condo was perfect for us after a long day skiing and going out to dinner.

The lodge was very nice, clean and a great value. Some of the folks staying there were a bit "iffy,", but that is the only concern that we had. We would stay there again for sure.

My wife & I stayed at the Lodge in May of this year (2008) and agree with the reviews going back to 2004. Beautifully located among trees within a stones throw of town. We were looking for somewhere that would except our newly adopted dog. We were overwhelmed when we called and the staff couldn't wait to meet him. Rosy... More

When we arrived we were really surprised at the beauty of the place for the price we had paid. Though we arrived at around 3:00am we had no problem getting in our room they... More

This place was wonderful! Nestled among lots of pine trees and sitting back from a busy street, this is a great place to stay especially when travelling with pets. Large living area and nice kitchen area complete with stove/oven, fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Although this is an older lodge, the rooms were very clean.
