We were able to get a 5pm late check out for only $40.00. The room was very clean and well stocked. Fireplace was great and they offer a... More

Close to downtown, older but clean and comfortable. Quiet, pretty grounds. Nice area for dogs to run around! :-) No one was at the office when we arrived, but they had a phone set up to call and she arrived quickly. Nice place to stay!

My husband and I decided to get a cabin at Shadow Mountain Lodge and we are so happy we did. The cabin was so clean, welcoming, and private. You have a personal Hot Tub/Bath Tub, a kitchenette, a TV on a turn table so you can see it from anywhere, a gas fireplace, and plenty of towels. The whole set... More

We have stayed at Shadow Mtn. Lodge 2 previous times. This has been our best stay. The front desk clerk, Lea, was very courteous, friendly and made us feel very comfortable. She changed my room assignment without a problem and brought us a firelog, sheet and towel for our Yorkie. The rooms were immaculate. We will be visiting again! Thanks!

We recently stayed here for a 3 day ski weekend and everything about the lodge was perfect. From the cozy room to the extremely comfortable king bed to the beautiful hot tub...everything was wonderful! The new owners are super... More

We started off our stay by arriving at 3:30am, and with advance notice, they made getting into our room and finding it SO EASY! We had our pup with us too, and they were happy to set us up in a pet friendly room. Even left us with a sheet and towel for our old lady to wipe her paws... More

Knowing that you have a solid home base, whether on vacation or not, can make a huge difference in how your vacation goes. In this case, knowing that we were so well taken care of at Shadow Mountain Lodge, made all the difference in the world. I initially had plans to stay elsewhere but when I encountered a negative experience... More

Thanks for finding us! SML is truly and amazing place to stay, though most folks first gravitate to the branded box hotels then find us when they explore the village. We are sorry that you had a bad experience elsewhere, but are happy that that became a short cut in finding us. Come again soon and please tell other just... More
