We stayed here on the last weekend in January. The lodge is very comfortable and the rooms were as well. Lori and Ken are great people that make you feel welcome from the moment you walk in. Sure the price is a little more than some of the surrounding accomodations but you get a nice hearty, all you can eat breakfast, lunch and cookies and beverages. The lights are dimmed in the evening but it fit the relaxing atmosphere. The fire in the stone fireplace was always cheerful to see after skiing or coming back after dinner. Our room was cleaned every day until I asked them not to. I'm a firm believer in minimalism to conserve. I don't need clean towels everyday. I don't need more cleaning products used everyday. Every little bit of conservation helps the planet!
Lori is a veritable encyclopedia of local lore. Just ask her and she'll be right there to help you out. This place is top notch without being over the top. If you want bargain basement deals this in NOT the place for you. If you want to feel like you are in a nice CLEAN establishment with good company this IS the place for you. Thank you Lori and Ken for a great weekend in the mountains.
