The lodge is on the old historical Columbia Gorge highway and has some great antiques from the 1920's. We stayed in the West Room which was well appointed and comfortable. The bed was nice and we slept well. However, the place missed a warmth required for a B&B of this type. Using a toilet down the hall is not my favorite way to spend a night and when the floor boards creaked and groaned it made me even more reluctant to get up and use the bathroom.
The breakfast was nice, but it could use something more than just fruit, eggs and store bought muffins. Try waffles, scones, juice or a yogurt and fruit parfait. For the price of the lodging, the breakfast needs to be upgraded.
A wood stove would be a nice touch to the living room. How about board games from that period of a collection of movies from that time (The Sting, Chinatown, etc.)?
We enjoyed the stay, but I would encourage the owners to please pay attention to the finer details.
