Besides having a difficult name to remember the price charged for one night here seems high. But one night can be enough to see all the sights and wildlife which are close to the road. The road in from clearwater is paved, scenic and takes about 20 min. Once there the lodge itself seems home built but the rooms are well kept and have a good sized balcony overlooking a golf course. The family that runs the lodge is friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a wilderness experience close to the highway. We got a 50% discount through booking.com in June but I doubt that would be available in July or August.
Did not try the restaurant but saw the menu. A hamburger was $15 whcih did not seem unreasonable considering the wilderness location. Bring a cooler if you want to save money.
