After 3 days of rain and cold weather pulling into Valley view was like coming home. The owners are so sweet and make sure that you are comfortable. We stayed in the 6 person dorm that was ensuite. The lodge is a house on a rolling hill overlooking the valley. There were plenty of signs letting you know how to get there. Hot, clean showers. A small indoor common area with comfy couches and a nice covered outdoor area with picnic tables. The owners are very knowledgeable about the area and have lots of advice about where to go and what to do. I would call and make reservations ahead of time. There is a communal kitchen that is very clean and well stocked. We would stay here again!
