I have a special place in my heart for the Izaak Walton. I went there as a teen and had a wonderful time with my family and another. I have been back many other times to ski the trails and eat in the restaurant but I now returned with my husband for a night away that was close to home! They have done some amazing remodels very recently and upgraded many of the public areas. We stayed in a cabin and it was a cozy as can be and would have been comfortable for our family as well.
We had dinner in the dining room - they have a new Chef and the menu id out of this world! Awesome and excellent menu choices including a Pork Shank Osso Bucco that my husband had and the Filet Mignon with Mushroom Risotto which I had. We started our meal with an excellent Caesar salad made with Grilled Romaine - as my husband said "a party in your mouth" and he is not a salad guy. As a salad gal, I can say that I loved it and would return and order it as an entree with chicken at any time I wanted a lighter entree.
Breakfast the next morning was again a delight! My husband had the crab cakes benedict which was excellent. Crab cakes were cooked to perfection and it was a taste sensation! I had a special they were offering with Elk sausage, home made hash brown potatoes with onion and peppers and mushrooms - excellent!
Would go back in a hear beat and highly recommend this amazing hotel. If you want a national park lodge experience - THIS is the place to go - in my opinion this outdoes most any national park lodge in the State.
Love this place and will be back for sure!!
