I love this place for what it is: a clean place to rest your head in a great location with fantastic food. A no frills no glitz atmosphere with a first class staff willing to help, treat you kindly and answer any questions that you may have. It sits at the base of natures playground so you can roll out of bed and be into adventure 50 yards from your doorstep. My favorite by far is that for $2 bucks extra you get their meal plan served at the visitor center and the food is excellent, I mean excellent and all fresh (wild mushroom ravioli, potato leek soup, beef tenderloin.....) The executive chef comes out to say hello and ask if everything is ok or if you have any special requests, come on for 2 bucks! Puts a smile on my face just thinking about the experience. After dinner they play a movie related to the season, we saw something on an Everest expedition, very cool. I can't say enough about staying here. If your expecting the Four Seasons you'll be disappointed but if you like a convenient home base that's clean, inexpensive and full of diversity this is your place.
