There is so much I can say about this wonderful lodge with fantastic panoramic snow covered high mountian views. The vistas of the 12,000 ft elevation to 14,000 ft are beyond words. The chef is one of the best we have ever encountered, and we have been to 5 star hotels in Southern California Coastline many times. The food is top rate and prepared with wonderful sauces, which of course makes the meal.
Our room had the best views, but everyone here was saying that about their rooms.
The lake is a mirror of the huge lush deep green forest that abounds here. We have been here now for four days.
The woman who is the head manager is very kind, attentive and professional. She has a cheerful dispositon and has chosen the finest cheerful young men and women to take care of the everyday needs. All the employees are friendly and seek to meet any need that may come up, and with a big smile and enthusiasm.
The great room with it's large fireplace is in itself a very special place to enjoy new found friends or have some quiet time with one's spouse.
The furniture in the common rooms and guest rooms appears to be very new classic "Arts and Crafts" style otherwise known as Craftsman Style. made from heavy oak wood and beautifully stained a warm tone.
Bathrooms are modern and always hot water. Room was very clean and the soaps/shampoo have a very pleasant mild mountain cinnamon bark scent that I have asked my wife to try to find because I can't stand the perfume types we always get at the 5 star hotels we have stayed at. This was are first stay here and it was recommended by the rangers we met in the National Park. For everyday we have been here the rest of the customers we just as surprised and pleased as we were!!!
Two thumbs up to the owners and to the whole staff! Many Thanks!
