My husband and I drove to this lodge to just get away with out a reservation. We walked to the desk and immediately were offered a bluff side room. This was one of the eagle awareness weekends and there were alot of people there for that. The lodge has been renovated and is very nice, nicely furnished with rustic type furniture and furnishings. Several big fireplaces in different areas in the lodge where you can sit and have a cup of complimentary coffee or just warm by the fire and talk and relax. The room was spacious with fairly new furnishings. It was clean with plenty of towels and coffee pot in the room. The bed was not very comfortable and the cleaning staff knocked on the door about 8:00 wanting to know if we were ready to check out, this is about the only complaint I have. The view from our balcony was beautiful looking over Lake Guntersville. The desk personnell were very friendly and helpful. Now for the Sunday brunch. Delicious!! This was a buffet style brunch with prime rib, catfish, bbq ribs, several vegetables, soup and salad bar, and several dessert choices. The chef even fixed me eggs benedict upon request. The chef that was serving the prime rib informed us about the dessert choices and let us know that there was a chocolate orange cake he had baked that morning that was a new recipe he had tried. Wonderful! This is a very nice get away for the price of $99 for one night stay.
