Just returned from two nights at SRL and enjoyed playing in the snow with our dog, reading and napping by the fireplace. Very cozy and quiet (I'd recommend bringing along some music to enjoy). Muffins and dog biscuit delivered each day was very nice. Didn't taste freshly baked, though they were pretty tasty. In cabin coffee, tea and hot chocolate was nice to have, as was a fridge for snacks we had brought. The cabin itself was rustic and comfortable...heavy bedding, gas fireplace, very comfy chairs/couch, and lots of windows for looking outside at the snow. Our main activity was hiking through the woods with our doggie, and we all enjoyed that very much! We're so appreciative of pet-friendly lodgings.
I enjoyed a glass of beer at the bar and the atmosphere is very cozy and relaxing. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Mike and Jan seem like friendly hosts. The dining room is lovely, and lunch was very tasty....a roasted vegetable and hummus sandwich for me, and an excellent cheeseburger for my hubby. Dinner was the meatloaf (awesome!) and stuffed eggplant (also very good). I thought the soups could use a little more seasoning. Peanut butter pie was excellent, as was the apple pie, however, it would have been better warmed and served a la mode. Didn't have breakfast in the restaurant and wish we would have...just a logistics thing for us. Easy drive from Northern VA (about 3 hours), and we were glad we had AWD for the snow event. Will definitely return to experience other seasons of the year!
