Found this lodge on trip advisor and it surpassed all of our expectations. If you are looking for a warm, friendly atmosphere where you can feel like you are in the middle of the wilderness, while still enjoying first rate accommodations, Mt Engadine Lodge is for you. We met individuals, couples and families from Europe, the US, Canada and Australia during our 4 day stay. The innkeepers and staff were incredible, looking to make our wilderness experience memorable. They provide a family style buffet breakfast and dinner where you sit together in the common dining area. We often lingered for hours after dinner with our new friends in the common areas of the main Lodge. Right after breakfast, a wonderful lunch station is set up to make your own brown bag lunch to take in your backpack on your daily hike. We took the 2 easiest hikes and the scenery was spectacular. Both were between 8- 9.5 km (4-5 miles) round trip and were done leisurely by my wife and I. Other guests took much longer and more challenging hikes, it just depends what you are up for. When you return to the Lodge in the afternoon, they have a traditional tea service in the main dining room - varied offerings and all good! We stayed in one of the cabins, very clean and beautiful views of the meadow and mountains outside, along with our own private deck. We couldn't say enough good things about our experience and would definitely recommend it; we hope to return some day with our children. Lastly, within the first 24 hours of our stay, we saw a moose in the meadow, a porcupine and coyote from the front windows and almost every evening, we saw the moose and her calf below the main deck, and then the bull moose showed up! We saw more wildlife from the Lodge then we encountered during our hikes, although grizzly bear were spotted up by Chester Lake about 1 hour before we reached the Summit!
