We also enjoyed your stay during the 4th of July weekend. We are glad you enjoyed the two rooms and your rafting adventure. We hope to see you again, and don’t forget that fall, winter, and spring seasons are also excellent times to visit and explore other activities around Gore Mountain. We hope you will visit us again at Gore... More

We had such a terrific winter, so much snow, and I wanted one more day of skiing. I love Gore Mountain and so did a last-minute search for a place to stay nearby. All I can say is that we hit the jackpot when we found the Gore Mountain Lodge. Incredibly comfy beds (and that is important after a long... More

Hey, Nicole. Thanks for the great review! We really enjoyed hosting you and your husband and we were very happy to help with a snowshoe adventure right out the back door This spring, we've worked on our cable with the cable provider and now have crystal clear TV reception. We've also explored the woods fully and can add even more... More

I stayed with my two 11 year old boys and couldn't have enjoyed myself more. The owners were very accommodating and friendly and made our visit relaxing and extremely easy. The 3 minute commute to the mountain and the 5 minute trek to dinner provided plenty of time to enjoy the mountain and the lodge. The room was very clean... More

Location, location, location. Only 3 minutes from Gore Mountain. This room had pristine interior décor with essentials for skiers...boot mats, cubbies, luggage benches, hooks and plenty of dresser storage. only minutes from great food and spirits. I truly appreciated the small fridge for storing late night snacks and beverages as well. If you think you'll have problem with cell phone... More

These guys did such an amazing job with this hotel. Beds are really comfy. Furnishings are really smart and cool. And you really can't be much closer to the mountain. Plus, the owners are super accommodating and we got there in time to experience the newly completed yurt! The best part about the trip was that my 5 year old... More

The family-owners really did their research, down to the simplest detail ... like enough hooks! Why don't the majority of hotels understand the concept of having hooks! We couldn't have been more pleased! The owners were extremely sociable, gracious, and accommodating. Did I mention hooks? And, the refrigerator allowing us to save time and money eating with in-room breakfast; the... More

Stayed here this past weekend. We found it by accident when we had to leave the place we were staying due to frozen pipes. It was a blessing in disguise. From the greeting of the owner when we pulled in to the modern but cozy lodge feel of the room to the best hot shower and cell service I've had... More

We loved our stay at The Lodge. Don't let the old motel structure fool you. Incredibly comfortable beds and modern decor await. Nice touches like fridge, wine glasses and opener, and coffee in the AM. It hits the right marks and stays away from being kitchy or twee. Free and quick shuttle to/ from Gore Mountain is great.

Located just a stone's throw from Gore Mountain, the Lodge was awesome. My fiancee and I have stayed at a couple of places in the area in the past and this one was by far the best. Not even close. We're so glad it recently opened. Aside from being incredibly affordable (and literally next door to Gore), the room was... More
