We spent 3 nights here in August 2012 - 2 night in the older part of the Lodge and one in a 2 room Pioneer Cabin.
We would not return to the lodge again - simply too noisy - this place is old and the walls are thin and you can here your neighbors watching TV and talking and every word said by every person walking past your room - you can clearly hear the loud "ding" of the elevator arriving at the opposite end of the hall.
The Pioneer cabin was lovely - and large and quiet and fun - AND expensive. But we'd stay there again.
We really enjoyed the quick access to all of the hiking trails - which are amazing.
We planned to eat in the pub - but the appetizer we had was terrible, so we went into town.
ALSO (pet peeve): the coffee shop sells muffins for $2.99 - really taking advantage of being the only option.
