As others have noticed, this 80+ year-old-lodge is a fabulous Sierra getaway, located on the picturesque Silver Lake. We had the strange situation of being at the lodge during three very cold and rainy days in June of all months, but the cottage was so spacious, with lots of wood to have a fire burning, and we had lots of gadgets and games to keep us occupied, that we hardly left the whole time! The floor was starting to buckle a little in places, and the shower was small, but for a few nights, these were not issues.
The only drawbacks on the Snowshoe cabin were the shared common wall with the other cabin and sound issues related to that, and a tricky patio door lock. The Smore packet was cute, but not particularly fresh, and a little microwave would really help in the kitchen. No hair dryers or other heating units can be used, also.
When we did venture out, we enjoyed the art gallery, store, multi-national staff, and Tuesday night wine-tasting, and had a wonderful dinner in the restaurant. There are some hiking trails in the area we'd like to explore more of next time, and were sorry not to have been able to get out on one of the kayaks as part of our Living Social package. We'll be back!More
