Dirty, old, stinky, no a/c, exterior is dark, burned out light bulbs, road noise, no ice machine, filthy pool, 70's curtains and shag carpet......just awful. Actually have keys for doors and flimsy locks. Very nice staff though both on phone and in person.

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2016

It was a quiet location with friendly people all around. It is only walking distance from town. The actual room was an overall good experience nice and clean. Loved the private patio. The kitchen in the room was adequate with a small refrigerator, electric stove and microwave oven with a coffee maker and toaster. More

Was an awesome 'old-school' lodge. Great location. Walking distance to good food and wine tastings. Pool and courtyard made you feel like you were back in the 50's. My wine and I will defintely stay here again.

OK, I love renovated and updated motels. This is a mid-century gem. I was traveling with a friend (It was her birthday) and I was looking for a place to stay in the "wine country." After being shocked by prices (not so much the base price but resort fees, etc.) I decided to give Blue Sky a chance. So glad... More

This Lodge was a great stop on our 12,500 mile summer roadtrip. The pool was fantastic and rooms were large and included a private balcony which we used to sit and sip wine for the evening. The hottub could have looked cleaner/more inviting but other than that I recommend this lodge highly

So quiet, friendly and unique! I see people commenting on here that you need to remodel. Whatever you do, please don't modernize too much! With your amazing architecture, you should be not re-modeling, but restoring your property. Change carpets, furniture, fixtures, etc but please please leave the paneling, original windows, sliders, etc!! You have an amazing property. P.S. - loved... More

We have been going to Blue Sky Lodge for many years. Ownership has changed but many of the friendly employees are still the same. We like to travel with our dog and they are a dog-friendly establishment. 1/2 block behind the lodge is a lovely, large field to walk in. It used to be an airstrip, but now is used... More

The lady in the office was very friendly. The rooms were nice and clean. Loved the private patio. We even seen a deer behind our room. Some may say it needs updated but I believe that's what gives it its charm. Would stay there again. Walking distance from the town. Nice relaxing, quiet place
