My wife and I spent several days at the Lodge for our 40th wedding anniversary. We found the proprietor, Horst, and the entire staff to be very friendly and accommodating. They really added a very personal touch to the entire stay and were always seeking ways to help make your stay more enjoyable. Like others, I strongly recommend getting room overlooking the lake. We found our room to be very clean and efficiently and unobtrusively cleaned very well each day. We had dinner one night and it was excellent as noted by other reviewers. The Lodge is on the opposite end of the lake from Chimney Rock, the much more quiet end, which we appreciated. This means you have to drive the winding road to get to most places, but that is a part of the charm of the mountains. We also enjoyed meeting some of the other guests. A couple of snags keep me from giving it a full 5 stars. The hairdryer in our room did not work and a chair had a broken leg. I personally found the puffy memory foam mattress fairly uncomfortable, but others may like it. The breakfasts served were excellent, well-prepared and graciously served. But they were limited to 1 or 2 choices offered each day with no substitutions. A small individual saucer of fruit was offered rather than a fruit bowl on a bar as with many B&Bs. Limited bread choices, cereal, juice, coffee and tea were the only breakfast bar items. If what was being served that day was not to your liking, you were sort of out of luck. Luckily, I liked the choices each day. Overall, it was a very good experience and I would recommend the Lodge to others seeking a serene holiday on a peaceful lake in the mountains.
