My husband and I spent 3 days here and loved it. We stayed in one of the cabins. It was clean, modern, and comfortable. We had a small kitchenette/dining area, a flat screen with a ton of channels that rotates to be viewed from either the living room or the bedroom, and a fabulous gas fireplace that sits between the...

Our only purpose for our recent visit was to enjoy some cooler weather and be able to relax and recharge. This fit the bill perfectly. We stayed in one of the 4 small cabins. We originally chose to stay here because we planned to bring our 2 dogs and they are very dog friendly. We ended up not taking them,... More

Thanks for staying with us and certainly bring your furry friends next time, they are more than welcome. There are so many folks traveling with their pets nowadays that we have blocked off specific cabins and rooms for folks just like you. We also provide a special cleaning process when pets stay with us so that you would never know... More

The Shadow Mountain Lodge was a very clean comfortable get away. The owners were very friendly and seemed to truly care that our stay was a pleasant one. I will certainly stay there again! It is located on an easy to find road, but still is a very quiet location and has lots of trees and you get the feel... More

We live in the desert and wanted to get away for a few days where it was cooler. Our room was very comfortable, clean, and well-appointed. We especially liked having two chairs outside our door near the hummingbird feeder. We loved having coffee on the deck watching the birds (and deer).

We are sorry that you misunderstood our policies and what you were told. During the summer months we have certain minimums and just as you can expect your room to be clean, maintained and available as requested we expect you to live up to your end of the bargain. When you book four days then on day three want to... More

Had one of their cabins and it was cozy and comfortable for two people. It was quiet and this year many deers visited us throughout our stay. Cabin has a small and adequate kitchen as they do not serve breakfast.

If you like quiet, quaint, cleanliness, accommodating, amenities, reasonable price point and close to most shops and restaurants, this is the place for you. This was our 19th year in a row to stay at Shadow Mountain Lodge. This year we had 22 people in our group. Each year confirms why to continue to visit this special place.

Great place to stay-adults only but well worth it. Kitchen area if want to cook, front porch to sit on and watch the hummingbirds. Beds were hard at one time but they have added mattress tops and so much better.
