This lodge is located in a gorgeous location with indescribable views of the Pacific. We stayed in a "whirlpool room" with cathedral ceilings and nice furnishings. Loved the ability to blast heat just in the bathroom. Here were my issues: Check in was ridiculous. We arrived 40 minutes early and instead of checking us in to get our keys when available, we were told to wait until 4 or until they called us. I went back to the desk twice to see what our status was. At 4pm, there were 4 other couples in line and we checked in at 4:30. Ergh. Actually, I would have been very happy if they had simply had their wine reception earlier than 5 or at least, had tea and coffee available. Nevertheless, the front desk women were super nice. We had our 20 yo daughter with us and the lodge provided a uncommonly, uncomfortable cot. Time to upgrade! Would have been great to have a DVD player in room as we had brought a DVD we intended to watch. Dinner at the Duck Club was scrumptious but service was abysmal. Perhaps the kitchen was off but come on, 1 hour to wait for chicken? The biggest issue we had was spotty to non-existent cell service. When one has to be on call as a doctor and can't be reached, this is unacceptable. BBL needs to rally and get a cell tower in place near by! We drove all over the little town trying to find bars of reception!
