I've hiked this trail several times and we have had a picnic lunch outside the lodge/ picnic fashion.
This year we decided to have lunch in the lodge and the food was incredibly delicious. Home made soups with perfect flavor and seasoning and thick homemade bread sandwiches. I had the death by chocolate dessert and have never tasted better in any 5 star restaurant.
The atmosphere is perfect and Laura and George are perfect hosts.
I do have to disagree with the treacherous review on the hike,,,I have never even found it to be very challenging. I would call it mildly moderate. I guess perspectives can be different for expectations on trails.
