We were here for a wedding in July 2012 and were very impressed. I am gluten intolerant and my girlfriend is lactose intolerant. The staff catered to our restrictions and made some amazing meals. I was very impressed with the food, the service and the helpfulness of the staff.
Nearby hiking trails are maintained and very nice. The lodges have a lovely rustic feel but with hot tubs! Scenery from the lodge is great but the lake is very questionable up close. Would have been nice to do some of the longer hikes but didn't have time for them.
One downside is the road to get to the lodge, which is a little precarious with cars going both directions and a shear drop on one side. This could be dicey in winter.
