From what we had heard from a friend who stayed a few years back, it sounded like the lodge would be outdated and maybe not so clean. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness, spaciousness, room supplies (paper towels, kitchen dishcloths and soap, etc.), freshly painted/papered walls, new bathroom linoleum, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and more! The BEST part was the BEAUTIFUL VIEW of the Ohio River from our own balcony! It was so peaceful, quiet and lovely. Even though the restaurant/main bldg. are only open on Saturday and Sunday, we had cell phone numbers to reach someone at any time for needs. We only had the free internet access up at the main bldg. patio or parking lot during the week...but they said next year they're upgrading to get access in the rooms along w/ new flat screen televisions and new balcony furniture as well. Will definitely go back in the future!
We also liked the location - close to the free ferry that crosses the Ohio over to the Amish community rural stores in Kentucky. It was also a good "home base" every night while being out during the day visiting the local attractions w/ hiking and gorgeous views/sights to see as well as several wineries.
Mattresses aren't the best - but all in all, was a great stay!
