I've been to Gorman Chairback three times over the past couple of years--every time it just gets better and better. Staff is super friendly, food is good (and I'm fussy), accommodations tremendous.
Be aware, it is "rustic"--many of the cabins require using outhouses, but the main lodge does have hot showers and a wood fired sauna. Cabins--some of them antiques, though rebuilt/snugged up--have wood stoves to keep fairly warm, flannel sheets, and are quite roomy.
The skiing, snowshoeing, and poking around is great. And, because it's a lodge, you tend to get to know other guests a little quicker than many place.
