We arrived at Blanket Bay on the last leg of our honeymoon and immediately noticed we had saved the best for last. It is set in a beautiful location, in which it fits into perfectly. Blanket Bay is a cozy, yet luxurious, lodge where you can go to literally get away from it all. The excellent service, excellent rooms and beautiful views really set the hotel apart from others we had stayed at before, but all the other small things (including the dining...which was great), truly made this a 5 star experience. Although Blanket Bay is not cheap, it is worth every penny. If you can afford it, do not hold back. You will not be sorry.
Even though I noted the excellent service above, I have to give personal recognition to Judy, Eric, Owen, and Lauren who were so nice and attentive that it made our stay memorable.
