“Best choice ever made...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2011

We stayed there for new year's eve (Dec 28th, 2010 to Jan 1st, 2011)
I really recommend this place, it's cozy, noiseless, fireplace, kitchen with all you need.
Worth every penny we spent. Very romantic place to spent with your couple.
One thing to consider, you won't get any cell phone signal at all. But it has internet service for those that can live without it. I promise we'll be back here next time.

Beautiful Place . Nice setting areas. Peaceful Landscaping. It is a very nice stay. We had stayed here @ 7 to 8 years ago , and it is the same today. We stayed in the off season this time, so rates were Ok. Summer season rates are to high for me to just sleep in a room. But this Is a Great place to stay. The fire log thing isn't too cool And the Broken hot tub, but it has fireplaces . I Do tell my friends and family about this place ! It is a great find.

We booked this lodge for couples because of the promise of a great outdoor hot-tub in the gazebo. Alas, it had been broken for a year, and may not be fixed until next year. However, the setting was lovely, the room large and comfortable, and the price was right.

Relaxing place to stay. Went there for a birthday getaway with the wife. Definately worthwhile; cozy place away from the hustle of the main road but not too far from it. Great service; clean rooms; good buy. Will be back!

Shadow Mountain has 4 adjacent cabins in addition to the 20 or so rooms in the lodge. We stayed in cabin #4. The cabins were built in 2002, have all amenities ( including a front porch, chairs and constantly eating hummingbirds). The hosts were excellent and it was a wonderful stay.

We stayed in one of the cabins and loved it!! The setting is so peaceful and relaxing. Could have watched the hummingbirds chase each other for hours. Loved the two sided fireplace. The accommodations were very comfortable and all you need to pack is your clothes and toothbrush/paste. They provide a hair dryer, liquid soap, and shampoo. If you and your spouse/partner are opposite in rising and retiring, you may find the setting more challenging. You cannot turn a light on without disturbing the other person, but other than that, this is a great place for adults. PS. Your GPS will NOT get you to the location.

We stayed at the Shadow Mountain Lodge 10 years ago and wanted to get away again. The Shadow Mountain Lodge is couples only and now has Cabins. Fireplace, jacuzzi, kitchen, great landscaping - everything we needed for our short 2 nt stay. The property was immaculate and everything in the cabin worked great. The property is close to the river in the Upper Canyon, we saw deer walk on and near the property both days we stayed. We will be back, but we have to leave the kids at Grandma's, because the property is couples only. (NOTE: no pets, no smoking)
