    No complaints at all. Great view, great stay, good food. Very authentic feel- if that's what you are looking for. Customer service was great, very professional and friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

    The lodge and rooms are beautiful. We spent the evening in the bar for the view, entertainment, and drinks. Even though the lodge has 80 rooms, the staff did a good job making sure everyone was taken care of.
