We've stayed here on two occasions, last time was one night in July 2012. We came back because we liked it so much the first time, and made sure our route passed by this place once more. The first time there we stayed in a historic little room, with one queen bed, alongside the main building (housing the restaurant and reception), we loved it! Last year those rooms were already full and we got a room with two queen beds in a two story newer building, overlooking the valley beneith.
I'm sure the views are beautiful from this room, when the weather allows it, but we were unfortunate enough to get fog.... Still the area is filled with animals, I don't know how many deers we encountered, or butterflies, different birds and even a bear and a barred owl. They really made up for the bad weather!
The restaurant offers great breakfast/lunch/dinner choices, at reasonable prices, in a room overlooking the valley as well. If you think your room gets too lonely, you can spend time in the common living room adjacent to the restaurant. You'll find someone else to talk to, or just sit down and enjoy the view. In addition the park service has several activites one can participate in, and lectures on the history and fauna of the area one can attend (onsite).
If we find ourselves close by sometime in the future, we would go back for sure!
