The Leland lodge is a outstanding lodging experience in a beautiful setting. The rooms are all remodeled, quiet, clean and comfortably appointed. The little town and a small beach are both a 5 minute walk away.
The first thing I noticed is the attention given to us by the staff. At any moment there is two, three or sometimes four staff members immediately available to answer questions or assist with any requests. If you have ever stayed in an upscale hotel in Asia you will find the service at this lodge to be comparable with that of a nice hotel in Tokyo or Bangkok.
We found the food and beverage service to be upscale. I highly recommend the restaurant. I believe it is a focal point of the overall experience the new owners are creating at the lodge. You will not be disappointed with the choices or quality available from the lodge menu and the wine list. The word on the restaurant is getting out quickly so be sure to make reservations.
We will visit again next year for sure.
