I am pleased to submit an excellent review on Firewaterlodge as I stayed there in "07 and "08 for an extended stay during both summers. Richard, the proprietor, has made continued improvements on the facility and was always upgrading a room, adding a new tub area or fixing something as he takes great pride in his very charming lodge and everything is always clean and tidy even if the infrastructure is quite old, apparently dating back to the '30's.
The mineral baths are just fantastic and I even befriended his cats who roam about freely all over the place as if they are actually running the place...they were very cute and friendly. His "maids" or "housekeeping staff" were always very helpful and were not at all intrusive...one hardly noticed their presence as they got their work done and they were not always "hovering" around as I have experienced at some other facilities. They were discreet in their usuage of the tubs and made sure that the guests always came first...the big fellow (can't remember his name) was filling the tub to "cool off " for his wife (they are a "team," as it were, and do the maid-service) and a guest was also ready for a tub. he graciously deferred to the guest and disappeared so as not to cause a disruption to the peaceful courtyard for the guests. We had many campfires and sang songs...Richard took us on river floats and jet skis out at the lake. It was a most pleasureable experience.
