“Peaceful retreat with nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We enjoyed our stay at Lied Lodge. The lodge rooms were nicely appointed, including a fridge. Beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were small and tight on space, but doable. Nice nods to nature were scattered throughout the room. We had a first floor room, so we could sit on the patio and enjoy the property.

My husband and I came down for our 2nd wedding anniversary. We stayed on a Monday night at a special rate, a bed and breakfast package. The hotel was beautiful, lodgey. We stayed in a room with a view of the vineyard. The king bed was not only awesome for two people used to a queen, but super comfortable. I wish I could take those pillows home!! We had dinner and breakfast there. Breakfast was amazing, dinner I was slightly less impressed with. But they're options were unique and reasonably priced for a pretty fancy place. The pool was great. I loved the nice deep tub in the bathroom, plus the eco-friendly toiletries. Hotel employees were all friendly and helpful. And the hotel and town as a whole is quaint and nature-y. We had a wonderful time!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of the hotel have a better view than on the front side.

This is a great place to hold a conference. The grounds are beautiful allowing short walks between breaks. Food is good, lots of fresh and local used. Breaks are out continuously so be careful although healthy selectioins are usually available. Rooms are nice, nothing elaborate. It is great to get away but takes extra time to get back and forth from the airport. Have had several meetings there, it has never disappointed.

Great views. Nice grounds. Rooms are relatively small, but quiet. Desk staff were helpful, courteous and responsive. Rooms were clean, a tad dated/worn. Great indoor pool - 5 lanes, 25 yards. Exercise room is small, limited number of machines - only one treadmill. Our only disappointment was the restaurant - service was inordinately slow, which was annoying. They did give us meals for free as service recovery - but we ate here twice and both times we ended up sitting a long time. It's bad business giving your food away for free. And the waitresses just seemed unhappy, which leaves a pall over the whole dinning experience. Overall good, but could be so much better.

I just returned from a national leadership institute on designing natural outdoor play spaces for children and Lied Lodge was a simply amazing space for the event.
This was my second visit to the lodge
I'm an Architect and often critical of many places I stay at, but Lied Lodge is simply stunning with its distinctive architecture. The public spaces are inviting and gorgeous. Great terraces with views to Arbor Day Farm. Very interesting co-generation plant with exhibits.
The rooms are very nice, yet maybe just a tad small. The bed was very comfortable. The desk could have been larger since I had work to do and there was space for it. The room did not have powerful enough lights. Even with every light on it still felt dark.
Toiletries are Natura brand which is sustainable and seemed to be high quality.
The maids took excellent care of the room. it was always very clean and everything was in good condition.
I love the indoor pool at Lied. It is great for lap swimming at 25 yards long with multiple lanes. The big pool isn't great for families since it has a depth ranging from 4' to 4'6 deep, but there is also a small toddler pool for young children. Abundant towels, tables, chairs and chaise lounges. There is also a nice whirlpool with a variety of jet intensities. I didn't try the spa, but it looked very nice. The cardio room is very small.
The food in the dining room and lounge was excellent. They work very hard to source local food and do a great job of having lots of choices including many healthy ones. Loved the salads with the hazenuts. i did have a tough steak one night that I returned, but even that meal was enjoyable with all of the vegetables, sauces, etc.
Nice little lounge hidden around the corner.
Meeting and Conference space is excellent. great place to bring folks for a retreat or visioning workshop. Variety of room sizes. Little bit of a mildew smell in a couple of the rooms.
Arbor Day Farm right next door is an amzing place and is a special opportunity for families to find and visit. It has many varied activities including a treehouse and some play areas that are nationally recognized. Lots of great things in the gift shop and you get to take a tree home with you.
I strongly recommend Lied Lodge!

Room Tip: 4th floor rooms with dormer windows have great views, but feel dark.

I LOVE the place!!!! They have a big pool, nice rooms, a freaking HAZELNUT FARM, & an awesome trail that connect them to that tree farm place!!!! The location is nice & the houses are ranked by how close they are to the Lodge. The closer, the less run down. Although, I HATE the restaurant they have!!!! I ordered their parmesan fries that night & most of the fries on there were burnt. I ate what I could without feeling more miserable than I was THAT NIGHT. Now the bed DID rejuvenate me, but I was pissed off to find out that they charge you for their breakfast. I mean, what's a hotel w/o free breakfast!?!? Overall, good. 4 stars.

Also, the pool was awesome!!!! I swam in it for hours (not that I knew that I was in there for that long) & that's how I felt miserable b/c I was in there for too long.

Room Tip: Do NOT eat at their restaurant!!!! It SUCKS!!!!

What a great place to get away. The food was outstanding, the service was excellent. The employees were very friendly. The housekeeping staff were very thorough and greeted us every time in the hall. The front receptionists were knowledgeable when ever we had a question. Mitch the bartender was very entertaining and very friendly. We'll definitely be going back. The setting of the Lodge with all the beautiful trees and walking paths is quite amazing. We were very impressed with everything and everyone at the Lodge. It was a great weekend getaway!
I would recommend this to everyone!
