Cabot Lodge has a ski chalet ambiance including a huge circular fireplace in the lobby. The lobby contains many groupings of comfortable furnishings so you can spend time talking etc in semi privacy. They have happy hour each evening included in your stay. Everyone I have met afiliated with this lodge is professional, polite and very very helpful. Rates are extremely competitive for the area. My fiancé travel frequently and Cabot is always our favorite above all.
