Our cabin was cozy and clean (the gas fireplace was on when we arrived) and several DVD's had been selected for us and left in our room. The setting is absolutely stunning; remote and quiet. The front porch is a great place to relax with a hot cup of tea and listen to the sounds of nature.

Fantastic weather (I'm sure lodge personnel had something to do with it :>), a delicious dinner and great staff made for a memorable experience. The comment of the day? 'I had no idea this place was here!' And this was...

It's the location that makes this place. The views are amazing. Even though it is far off the beaten path, about 20 minutes from route 1, it has an excellent restaurant. The cabin was a little tight for me, some would call it rustic and cozy. However, it was very clean with a comfortable bed. There is no cable TV,...
