Stayed here the last weekend of Feb and have to say we had a great time.
We were a little tentative after looking at the website and even more unsure after reading the bad reviews. But we took the plunge and decided to book at the Eco-Lodge after realizing that the bad reviews were all old and it appears from people expecting the Hilton.
All I can say is that we were pleasantly surprised with every aspect of the trip. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Robin is very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. The rooms were clean and as pictured on the website. The food was tasty, fairly healthy and plenty as seconds were available. We even didn't touch the snacks we brought along.
We also really enjoyed hanging out with the other guests. The hot tub and polar bear dip was wild. Never thought I would jump in a lake in the winter! The scenery is beautiful and skiing was good even though there was a thaw beforehand.
This place is for you if you want to get away from the crowd, love nature and be with like minded people.
We hope to be back every year.
