We booked the mini king suite in desperate need of a relaxing getaway. We got it. The roaring river and the lawn in front is perfect for relaxing on a blanket or at the tables and grill provided. We sat on the shared deck and watched a family of deer graze across the river as the sun went down. Falling asleep to the sound of the river was heavenly. And the blooming trees and flowers and even resident kitties wandering around made the trip for us.
The decor is a tad dated, but we didn't care. Everything else was wonderful. The lodge even rents vhs tape for a buck or two.
