We came here for my bday weekend and I wanted to love this place... The setting is beautiful, the cabins are great, and they appeared to be very animal friendly -- which is very important to me -- dogs are allowed and welcome, plus great veg options on the menu. Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed that the main lodge was decorated with deer corpses and body parts. So, if you are an animal lover who recognizes that all animals' ability to feel pain and fear should be respected (whether dog or deer), or if you are just not into seeing dead animals strung up on walls, beware. We approached the owner and suggested a more compassionate and progressive decor, but unfortunately he was not receptive (even though the staff was quite understanding!). Too bad - would have been a great place, but as it stands I cannot return there or recommend it.
