Our stay started with an employee calling to ask us when we were checking in which was nice. We told them we would be there between 5 and 6. We arrived to see that the lodge was closed but there was an employee there to check us in. We saw two employees and neither was wearing a mask. The check in was fine except he told us our cabin had a microwave and mini fridge. It did not. He also did not explain to use how to get to the cabin. We had to ask and then he explained very nicely how to get to it and where the bathroom was. He also explained to us that the lodge would open around 6:30 and stay open a little later depending on number of quests since it was New Years day. Since the Bighorns have received very little snow we were able to drive up to our cabin. We were prepared to snow shoe in so that was nice. The roads are a little narrow and had to squeeze past a couple of cars to get to our cabin. The Cabin We stayed in the Dove cabin which is a single room cabin with a king size bed. The bedding was very nice and kept us warm. The cabin appeared to be newer and we enjoyed it. The king size bed is up very high and we had to jump onto the bed. A handicap person might find climbing on the bed difficult. There were cobwebs everywhere. In the room was only the bed and a small table with a lamp. The cabin did have an overhead light as well. We had to take the two chairs from the porch and bring them inside since there was no place to sit. This room could use a couple of nightstands or shelves by the bed. We enjoyed the deep set windows which served as a ledge to keep our items on. There is a coat rack which is nice. The cabin could use an outside light but that is preference especially walking to the bathroom at night. Bring a flashlight. The heater we were a little worried about since it was small and it took several hours to warm up. Once it did it kept the room very warm. Only issue with the heater is it seemed to be either fully on with high heat or off. The fan in the heater also banged and made a lot of noise. We were going to mention this to employees but we never encountered any after the first night. More about that later. The Lodge The three employees we met were nice and friendly but did not wear a mask. We only saw them the first night. The second and third day the lodge stayed closed and we had no way of contacting anyone. We asked if they were going to be open Saturday night and they said depends on how many people wanted it to be open. Luckily we brought extra food because we heard this was an issue. Their website says they are open until 6 pm on Friday and Saturday. They were not open on Saturday. We both ordered fish and chips and the fish brought out was visibly burnt. We ate it and it was ok but not worth the price they paid for it. The wait staff was friendly but our food did take almost an hour with about 10 people in the lodge. Definitely if you plan to eat at the lodge bring your own food in case they close. The Bathrooms These by far were the worst. The first night the women;s bathroom had no toilet paper. I had to bring some from the men's to give to my wife. Now the men's did not have any toilet paper. Both bathrooms were dirty and the men's bathroom the urinal and one shower was out of order. No hand towels were in the men's or women's bathroom either. Luckily we have learned and had our own toilet paper. We told an employee on Friday night and noticed they brought one roll of toilet paper and no hand towels to the bathrooms. The bathrooms were not cleaned at all during our stay. The toilets were disgusting and the same dirty paper towels were on the floor all weekend. The bathrooms also had cobwebs in many places. Not hard to clean those. Hospitality Signs are posted everywhere on what to do or not do. This did not give the impression the owners want you there. Some are needed but others are not. Our biggest gripe is not finding an employee on Saturday or Sunday. We had an issue with a guy letting his two dogs run loose who kept running up and jumping on our leashed dog. Would have been nice to let someone know. Price For 149 dollars a night you can do much better elsewhere. You can stay at Muddy Guard or Pole Creek cabins for 40 bucks a night and get almost the same service. I may pay up to $99 dollars a night just for the view and the cabin or if I knew the lodge was actually going to be open. Final Thoughts: The Bighorns really need a nice lodge to stay at but the three lodges all need help. If they fix the customer service issue and cleanliness then we would love to come back.

first off if you are wanting a high end with all bells and whistles stay and no dirt, readily available wifi, don't bother! This is a place to disconnect and get away and enjoy what wyoming has to offer for those who don't mind nature and dirt😉 The customer service IS BEYOND AMAZING!! These folks went out of their way to make our stay epic! The food was delicious and the fact that we could escape all of the crazy going on in the world was beyond needed. The cabins and shower facilities are beyond what one would expect, super clean, and yes there is dirt, you should probably expect that in the mountains lol. We could not have asked for a better and more enjoyable time! We will go back mamy times and will be making this a tradition 🤗

The property closes at 8pm. I called ahead and told them I would be a little late to check in. The staff was very nice stayed late to let me check in. The property is a little rustic; no TV's, internet and wifi only near the lobby The views of the lake are beautiful. I found my room to be charming. The bed wasn't great but it was good enough. However, I had some sort of a critter in my room during the night. I couldn't sleep in my room and spent the night in my car. I explained the situation to the staff in the morning. They were very empathetic and didn't charge me for my room. If I make it back to the area I would give them another try.

I am appalled and disgusted at our recent stay at the Meadowlark Lake Resort. It is not a resort, far from it. The owners should be ashamed of themselves. The pictures on their website were very misleading. This place is so run down. Nothing has been maintained. The worst was our room at the lodge. During covid, things should be sanitized and beyond clean. Instead, it not clean and not sanitized. I actually had to clean the floors in the bathroom, the bathtub, and shake out a very dirty matt. There was a used washcloth on the bathtub and old soap in the shower. I had the creeps and wanted to leave. Please beware. This is not a place for anyone with the pandemic we are currently facing. If I get Covid, I will come after this establishment. To the owners: for goodness sake, wake up. I should report you!

I read the reviews before renting a cabin. They were several years old, so I figured things had to get better.... NOPE! ** No refund of deposits**..... FYI They charged us full price (summer rates) ... no service. There were two other families there. The place felt deserted. From a distance the place looks so charming, but up close it seems like it’s going bankrupt. Some of the cabins and the bathhouse have the roofs coming off with no sign of repair. The bathhouse was not labeled, and it took a while to figure out where it was. They did not provide a map of the location. The bathhouse had bags of trash in the bathroom the was never removed the two days we were there. Just a community bar soap to wash hands with. The lodge is closed because of Covid. So take your own water and food!!! There are small camp rings by some of the cabins. They did provide us with a coffee maker. We stayed in the Dove cabin. It was a king sized bed. There was a small side table and lamp on the other side of the room. You better have a flash light. The deck on the cabin did not have a step and was a bit difficult to get on. Other cabins had stacks of loose boards as a step to get on their decks. The dock by the lake was damaged and on shore. The kayaks were not available... it was in a very sad state. There was WiFi outside the lodge. Sadly I don’t think I will be back... growing up in Wyoming it’s a bit embarrassing the condition.
