I've stayed here several times over a few years and always in the main lodge. The rooms without bath are a great value in an otherwise pricey place, though they are quite tiny. Beds are very comfy with pillow-top mattresses and nice linens. Antique furniture that's in great shape. Communal bathrooms are very nice and clean with huge showers and stylish fixtures. The with-bath rooms tend to have mold in the bathrooms, but the communal baths are so much cleaner. Towels are fluffy. Being an old lodge, the walls are thin and you do hear the folks next door, and the folks above you walking on the creaky floor. There tends to be alot of noise in the halls while the pool is open (running back and forth and talking). The pool is great as long as it's not very busy and there aren't a lot of kids. Going late in the evening after dinner, and/or going on a weekday, reduces the kid-factor. The Poolside Grill is your best value for lunch and dinner. The housekeeping staff harassed my dog while I was out of my room in the morning and left my room door unlocked three times in as many hours. Despite repeated complaints, they continued to enter my room while I was out. Don't leave anything valuable in your room for this reason. Front desk staff is wonderful, though they do get backed up at peak check in and out. Overall, this is a nice place but don't stay here with a pet. Do expect some wear and tear on the rooms if you stay in the main lodge.
