The gateway lodge is a great relaxing place to stay and eat. We
stayed in the honeymoon cabin #6 which had a large patio facing
the beautiful river. The room had refrigerator, microwave, air
conditioning, coffee maker, hair dyer and sauna (we did not need
sauna in August). I could check my email with their Free Wifi and
watch cable on the flat screen TV. Our little dog, Lucy was
welcome, because the lodge is pet friendly. The staff was very
friendly and made you feel like family.
We ate at the restaurant, where my wife had the best New
York Steak ever. The steak was tender and covered with delicious
peppercorn wine sauce and mushrooms. I had the excellent shrimp
scampi. Our table had an awesome view of the river. Very
The lodge was 3 minutes to the Sequoia national park, where
we saw crystal cave and 3 breath taking water falls near the
cave entrance. The next day we visited the General Sherman
tree, it is among the tallest, widest and longest-lived of all
trees on the planet. The final day we floated on the river on
our inner tube. The Gateway lodge and restaurant gets 5 stars.
