My boyfriend and I are in our early thirties. We wanted to get away, relax, and take in nature. I didn't expect the Lodge to be a super luxurious property, but I did expect it to be relaxing. We made the most of it, but I don't want anyone else to make the mistake we did. Here are the problems: The walls are extremely thin, so think you feel like you are staying in a youth hostel. You can hear everything! Also, there are a ton of kids that stay here, which means they are up early and very active. If you plan on sleeping in or resting, forget it. If it wasn't the 3 women staying next door talking at the top of their lungs at 6 am, it was kids and dogs running on the wood panel walk downstairs. It is incredibly noisy. When I complained to the front desk, they offered no solution whatsoever. The food at the Lodge is okay, not really "seasonal and local" as they say, but it is definitely the BEST around. There is nowhere else to go, so plan on eating every meal (if you care about food) at the Lodge. The view and service is nice. We loved walking around the property and being close to nature. The water and animals are great, but that is it. Rent a house and make your own meals or go to the Sea Ranch bakery.. their sandwiches are great.
