Everything about our visit to Savage River was perfect. We were there for three days to celebrate our five year anniversary and bike the Great Allegheny Passage with their 50/40/30 package. From the moment we checked in, until Britian dropped us off at the trail for our last ride, we were in great hands. The staff will know your names, and surprisingly for these two introverts, you'll quickly get to know theirs. How they manage to keep up with the plans and preferences of all their guests is beyond me, but they do.
We ate at the bar our first night, which gave us a chance to soak in the lodge atmosphere and chat up some veteran guests for good advice. Everyone, staff and guests alike, made us feel entirely welcome and at home. Our cabin, when we finally made it back there, was warm and spacious. We LOVED the loft. That first night's sleep may have been the best we've had in years.
Our bike adventure started with picnic basket breakfasts delivered to our cabin door, everything fresh and delicious, and continued with shuttles to the trail. We were lucky enough to have Mike drive us himself the first two days, and we grilled him for all kinds of inside information. He was a wealth of useful knowledge, and we enjoyed the conversation very much. We got back to our cabin after our first day of riding to find a growler of beer and chocolate truffles waiting for us. Perfect!
We ate in the lodge after biking and the service was second only to the amazing food. The servers hit just the right balance of attentiveness without crowding us, and easily accommodated special requests. The peanut butter pie was as good as everyone promised (which is saying something).
We could go on and on, but really it boils down to the fact that Savage River Lodge is the epitome of what a weekend away should be. We can't wait to get back.
