Giving the lodge credit on its own merits, it is a very nice place to stay. Very comfortable condo, great front desk staff no doubt. The only reason I wouldn't rank it excellent is due to its location. If there is any question about the snow conditions, check it twice, because Elkhorn lift will be one of the last to open. The booking agent told me the village shops and restaurants were a short walk on a heated side walk, NOT. The village is almost a quarter mile uphill and the side walk can be treacherous. We lost a good bottle of wine due to the ice. The shuttle is convenient but if you want the convenience of the village by walking, this is not the best choice. But all in all, we enjoyed our stay.
