The Buckeye Tree Lodge is in a beautiful location with the river running directly behind it. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable but a little dated. I haven't seen a shower this old for years however it worked very well, although I have had better quality towels at cheaper motels. There were some very thoughtful touches such as a night light in the bathroom and fresh coffee beans and grinder. However there was only powdered milk to accompany it which was strange seeing as they gone to the trouble of providing fresh coffee, fresh milk would of course have worked much better and there was a fridge for it too. There was also a microwave in the room. The downstairs rooms have a large patio window opening out onto a shared patio. It is an idylic setting overlooking the river and the mountains. There is free wifi but it logs out quickly. The staff are very friendly and happy to help. I would have given this 5 if it had been a no smoking establishment. Unfortunately it isn't and it really isn't pleasant to sit outside with your very close neighbour polluting the clean fresh air. If this doesn't bother you though, I would recommend staying in this most lovely of locations.
