Perhaps one of the main purposes of the trip was to have some snow (!) but that was not to be. Nonetheless a delightful location with wonderful view from the bed and a delightfully cosy room.
I found the staff helpful (unlike some reports), the evening social (primed with a free glass of wine) great, the lake and the walk around it delightful (all sorts of tracks in the snow that was left!) and the breakfast in the Boatshed restaurant perfect.
I did find that Sisters was a little short of good restaurants (of the sort of which are are so many in Portland) and was really disappointed that Jen's Garden was closed for it's winter break along with some of the other 'possibles'. Dinner at the Boatshed was perhaps a little disappointing as I felt that it had been built up a bit in the reviews (this restaurant is not apparently part of the Lodge though clearly it has a close symbiotic relationship).
Quite surprised to see that if you didn't wash up any glasses you had used in your room, you were charged a cleaning charge! I would have hoped for glassed to be dish-washed between customers. Who knows whether the previous customer had a bad cold? Really this is the sort of thing I would expect to see in low cost a camping cabin so I felt they pulled themselves down a little here.
Overall I would still give this 5 stars and hope I haven;t sounded too negative.
