The Fire Water Lodge was recommended to my wife and I for a great getaway. It was described to me as being very, "rustic." I can tell you that if you are looking for luxury and 4 or 5 stars lodging this is not it. In fact I think they purposely try not to be. And believe me this a good thing! If you are looking for a romantic, laid back place to rest and relax, then look no further. My wife and I stayed in the Cactus Room, #9 which was small but good enough for two. It has a small kitchenette, two separate toilets, one with a shower. A small sitting area with a TV and a separate bedroom with a queen bed. We both found the bed to be on the hard side but not unbearably so. The courtyard was very quaint and provided a great place to socialize with other guests. Now the huge tub in a separate room that has been upgraded in wonderful and because it is private a great way to soak with someone special. The water at somewhere between 101 and 110 degrees was hot but soothing. We went on a our first moderate hike together and came back to this tub and just soaked the day and quite frankly alot of work hours away. Damien is a very gracious host and takes pride in what he built there. The Italian restaurant, Bella Lucca is very good although you might say it is some what pricey. The little deli, (Happy Belly Deli) attached to the lodge is a great place to have breakfast. T or C is a town where the simple life is very prevalent. The stores seemed to only open for a few hours and the one theater in town may have one showing in the evening. This is truly a place where come to unplug and unwind especially with your loved one. We plan on going back very soon.
