I stayed here in 2013 on and off for a month. While I wasn't the typical guest, I can assure you that the accommodations are lovely. The food is delicious and will make you rethink vegetarian cuisine (even if you're a meatlover). There are beautiful views right at the lodge. It's great to just sit on the lawn, play with the dogs, and look at the clouds in the hills. At night in the same spot you can watch hundreds of beautiful moths flock to an illuminated sheet. The Zorrillas and other people working at the lodge are fantastic guides and will wow you with so many facts along the hikes. Definitely a place to discover.
