One of the most peaceful places I've been. Yes, the cabins and inn are rustic and could be updated, but all the basic comforts are there next to the gorgeous lake surrounded by mountains and evergreens. I actually prefer the rusticity - it somehow fits the place.
I have been there in August and December. August was pleasant with balmy days and cool evenings. December had Just Enough Perfect Snow for snowshoeing at Caples and skiing at Kirkwood. The day after we left there was a huge blizzard.
This is a great family place , very laid-back and casual. A makeup-free zone if there ever was one! But take moisturizer....the air can be dry.
