We stayed at The Pines Lodge twice (6 nights in May, 5 nights in June) while planning a wedding and having the wedding reception at The Pines. During May we were in a room; in June in a 3 BR/4 bath condo. Both were very comfortable and spacious.
The outstanding aspect of The Pines was the service. The valet guys were extremely helpful with loading and unloading and always inquired how soon we would be going back out; they would leave the car out front if we were going back out soon so we could avoid the extra time for them to retrieve the car from the garage.
Several reviewers mentioned small items that needed repair such as nonworking outlets. Yes, we experienced those, but a call to the front desk brought a repairman within minutes and those things were quickly repaired.
The Grouse Mountain Grill restaurant was excellent on both trips. In the May off-season the restaurant was not open for breakfast but the lobby had coffee and muffins/granola bars. In the evening, the Grouse Mountain Grill had a special on a three-course menu with several selections of appetizers, entrees and desserts -- the pretzel-crusted pork chops were wonderful. By late June the restaurant was open for breakfast and balcony dining was very pleasant. Reservations are recommended as the restaurant is well-regarded and is busy.
Special thanks to Nancy Dowell of the Grouse Mountain Grill for guidance and suggestions for the wedding reception. She and Desi Koleva ensured that the room looked wonderful and the food was great. The guests were very complimentary of the food and the service was smooth and unobtrusive.
The size of The Pines (60 rooms) was much nicer than being in a huge hotel and the attentive service made one feel welcome. Hot tub (very hot!) was a relaxing way to end the evening.
