My wife and stayed in the Raccoon lodge for a week in early June 2012 and really enjoyed the stay. The house was nice and very comfortable and the views from the decks where Million dollar! We could only see one house and one light at night and that was several miles away. The way the cabins are laid out you can't see the other cabins on the property and only occasionally hear your neighbors. The internet did not work initially but the very nice office folks helped us have it going in a few minutes. Our Verizon cell phones did not work on the property but the house phone worked fine. We did see a few of the hornets that other people reported but they did not bother us. Now the driveway was something else. We where driving a Ford F150 crew cab with four wheel drive. The drive was definitely steep and mostly gravel covered but wide enough so that we never felt like we where to close to the edge and where going to fall off. We never needed the four wheel drive. I would not bring a car that was low to the ground like my wife's Volkswagen rabbit. We would recomend the Raccoon lodge
June is when the wild flowers are blooming and we had a great time hiking and seeing them.
