We have stayed numerous times at the lodge over the years. It is located in a truly remarkable place. The service has also been remarkable at times and at others not so much (as you can see from the reviews). Our most recent stay was over Christmas 2012. We like it best in the winter; the area gets a lot of snow and looks like a wonderland in winter. The surroundings offset some gripes; true the rooms are beginning to show wear and tear, true the prices are high but watch for off season deals, true the baseboard heating (on full) almost keeps the room warm (I stoke the fireplace regardless), true they don’t give the meals away in the dining room and the outdoor hot tub was tepid. I try to overlook these things because of the extraordinary beauty and for the privilege of staying in a protected area but the parking situation has always annoyed me. The Lodge was required to build a parking lot one mile away and run a shuttle bus. The service is prompt and it does give a little more solitude to the lodge but it is annoying when you need whatever you left in the car or would just like go down the valley for hiking. All of this together means we just don't stay there as often as we might otherwise like.
It is demanding to run a lodge in a National Park, miles from anywhere, by a pristine mountain lake with transient staff (mostly Aussie it seems) so I feel a little slack has to be given.
