I'd agree with most of the compliments recent travelers have given the lodge. My husband, daughter, 5 year old grandchild and I spent two nights in a double queen. We brought an air mattress for the little one to sleep on and there was plenty of room to keep it set up the entire time. Our balcony was great entertainment for all as we frequently saw deer near the lodge. Take care in driving the highways as deer can dart in front of automobiles. Breakfast was wonderful, but dinner was a bit disappointing. We ordered the chicken signature dish (OK), potato soup (very salty) and blackened catfish (entirely too seasoned). We are from Louisiana and this just doesn't taste anything like the good " blackened" fish we are accustomed to eating. The pool was really great. We also enjoyed using several of the common area lodge spaces when the weather stormy. During nice weather, which was most of the time, we enjoyed the beautiful outdoor patios and walkways. The drive from Paris is only 16 miles but it seemed like 50 when we drove it at night. I don't enjoy curvy roads much during daylight, but nighttime curves are really not for me! I'd return and think it would be particularly pretty during the fall.
