We stayed at the lodge with two teens and two other couples. Plenty of room for everyone, warm, comfortable and definitely the smartest place we had stayed along the trail. A very welcome sight after a day of wet biking. Mark is a great host, taking the boys to buy beer and wine supplies. We wish we could have had two nights here. I will be recommending this to shebikeshebikes.
