First of all, I love Emerald Lake Lodge—I attended a romantic New Years Eve celebration there a while ago, and was very happy with everything.
This time, my husband and I decided to bring our dog along, as they offer dog-friendly accommodations. The dog-friendly room was very clean, and the accommodations were excellent, as I expected.
Unfortunately, my only gripe has to do with the eating situation. I completely, 100% understand that pets are not allowed in dining rooms—it can be unsanitary, and not everyone shares my affection for our furry friend. I also understand that the lodge rooms do not have kitchens, and they do not want patrons to bring in outside food—their restaurants are delicious, so that's certainly not a problem. However, I don't understand how they can be dog-friendly if a) they do not allow room service, b) do not allow you to leave the dog unattended, and c) do not allow you to eat with your dog in a cordoned off part of the lodge. Now, granted, we were allowed to enjoy a meal in a very specific part of the lobby after some prodding, but I get the impression that's not the norm. I suppose you could tie the dog up outside while you eat inside, but on a rain day, such as the one we had, that doesn't seem like the best solution. I'm still not clear how patrons are supposed to eat at their lovely restaurants if they have brought their pet along?
If you're going to Emerald Lake Lodge as a couple or with your family—it's excellent, and you'll love it. If you're bringing your pet, I'd reconsider.
