We stayed at the Mt Harbor Resort for two nights in early April 2012 while visiting Mt. Ida area. We stayed at the lodge which was built in the 60's but has been refurbished recently. The room was quite spacious with a sitting area including a couch and desk. There is a nice patio off each room that was very nice to sit out on for early morning coffee or late afternoon relaxation. Our room had a comfortable king size bed and the bathroom was spacious and clean. The Mt Harbor coffee was an added bonus!!!
We ate at the restaurant for two breakfasts and two dinners and were very satisfied with the food and service. Really enjoyed watching the purple martins take care of the mosquitos.
Everyone we had contact with was very very friendly and helpful.
The resort was very quiet and I'm sure this was due to the time we were there---not really tourist season yet.
Certainly we would stay there again.
