Mike and Maury are the Lodge's cordial and talented inn keepers. MIke is a gourmet chef, who delights in preparing superb breakfasts and dinners for guests. Maury is the Lodge's decorator par excellence. Each of the 9 guest rooms is distinctively decorated, and the Lodge's two story great room is every suburbanite's image of a proper mountain lodge- sweeping grand staircase, comfortable leather sofas, pool table, extensive library for casual reading and jumbo stone fire place and hearth. Out front is a long covered porch with rocking chairs and ceiling fans. Perhaps the best part of the experience is the striking site with a long view of Lake Santeetlah and its surrounding mountains . Floating docks on the property are suitable for any boat that a guest might trailer into the area. A launch ramp is only a mile or so away. The Lodge provides kayaks for guest use and pontoon boats are available for rental. All the facilities are in top shape. I was so pleased with our late June 2012 stay that I plan to return often.
