We went with the High Country Lodge for the kitsch factor which it appeared to have. It isn't kitsch it is just rundown The cabins are old and poorly appointed. The furnishings are aging and uncomfortable - the couches are scratchy and the arm chairs and sinking. The furnishings will vary by cabin. We got to see two cabins because we were chased from our first cabin by an infestation of ants. The bathrooms in both cabins are microscopic and feature showers with heads about 5' off the ground. The kitchenettes features stoves, ovens, fridges and microwaves. The quality and functionality of each will also vary by cabin apparently. The highlight (especially for our son) was a large and surprising well maintained indoor pool. The same building also housed a sauna and hot tub that were also very nice.
