Going back in time...

It was raining the whole time we spent at the Inn but we still enjoyed being in the forest and using our imagination to 'see' the Mountain. We had delicious comfort food for lunches and dinners. The dining room is no frills....but perfect for the lodge setting. Wait staff interesting and very... read more

We camped at several National Parks this summer and tried to eat at the lodges. Breakfast on a rainy morning was comforting. My husband and I both ordered omelets, which were generous and delicious! Service was very good.

I've read lots of reviews for this lodging and I need to throw in my .02 too. Yes, it's expensive--but you are RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of one of the most beautiful national parks in the country. Yes, the room was average--but you can look out your window or sit in a rocking chair on the porch and see the... More

Quaint, great service, lovely rooms and a fireplace gathering room to play games in or just read a good book in the warmth. Winter or summer we love this place!

A very nice place for lunch. Certainly not so crowded as Paradise Inn. The grounds offer a kind of museum and the Trail of the shadows is a short, but very impressive trail. Really enjoyed the nature and tranquility there!

Very expensive for what you get. I had the surf and turf special because it was the same price as just the steak. The turf you would expect to be lobster. It was shrimp. It was okay for one night.

We ate here while staying overnight, and found the food was excellent. It was expensive but consistent with the National Park lodges, and had different offerings than Paradise. Dinner waitress left a lot to be desired, but Forest, our breakfast waiter was outstanding!!

Convenient location, nice individuals providing service and food is basic American fare. Breakfast is good, dinner is average but fine - not sure what some of the others expected - this is a National Park not a gourmet restaurant. I have stayed at the hotel and also just grabbed a meal (breakfast typically) and found both the service and quality... More

I love staying at the Inn, however eating here is very average. It's too bad, because the setting and atmosphere of the place are great. Dinner was very disappointing. As a National Park property, it is higher priced than the average dining experience outside the park, however I had hoped for food that would justify the price. The mixed green... More
