I am planning to stay at the lodge (5th year in a row) on 9/3 and 9/4/12 for a golf outing. I was disappointed to find no one on the phones before 1:00pm on Tues, Wed, Thurs.
The pool and spa are still shut down (today is 7/12/12). It has been out of service since at least Jan. of 2012. They have no specific date as to when it will be operational.
I had called ot make sure my reservation was all in order and it was. April at the desk was very nice and explained about the pool and spa. It's too bad about the pool and spa because they are the best part of the lodge. The pool area is quiet, scenic and relaxing. I will say the rates are still reasonable (about $70 per night), the rooms are a bit thread bare, but adequate, coffee makers are nice, it's generally quiet, especially at night. Cell reception is sketchy, free wi fi is nice. The restaurant is a hit or miss. Sometimes it's open, other times not. Best to call an check as eateries are not plentiful in the area.
I plan to stay there again in Sept. IF the pool & spa are working. Otherwise, I will make new arrangements.
