The lodge is beautiful and truly located in a great place. We were a little disappointed with the rooms. Lodge rooms in state parks are normally small but in this case we paid top dollar (on a Sunday night) so I expected more. Typical state lodge with no extras like a fridge or micro wave again not an issue if the rooms are priced better but the price here is high. Another real disappointment was the internet, we were told that we could "maybe get a signal in the lobby" but never could get connected and although we had a strong signal even in our room located a long way from the lobbie we got the dreaded "limited or no conductivity" icon. To sum it up this is a great lodge in a great location but the price must be lower for a sub-par room or upgrades are needed soon. It is 2013 and internet is a MUST if you charge upward over $100 a night. On a positive note, our hairdryer did not work and a call to the front desk had a maintenance man up in less than 10 minutes with a replacement.
