I'd much rather stay here. Our friends bailed on us. I booked The Silver Lake Lodge. The pictures on the web are nice but the actual experience goes way...

Reviewed December 12, 2016 via mobile

A large, rustic log cabin with multiple fireplaces, rooms for sitting, visiting, recreation, and dining-all decorated in a mountain theme. Fresh flowers and soft beds.

We stayed two nights at the Silver Lake Lodge and it was fantastic. Clean, beautiful rooms. Great location for hiking or exploring the area. The food was outstanding and there was so much of it at breakfast and dinner. I recommend the dinner but only eat a light lunch so you can enjoy each course. Thank you, Jim.

We agree with what other reviewers have to say regarding the lovely appointments, comfort, and coziness of this lodge. We brought our tween and teen children and even they just loved it. The food, views, and creature comforts like games and happy hour treats make it very special. However, a HUGE thanks to the owner for going way beyond all...
