We stayed one night in the Lodge and overall we enjoyed the stay. The rooms were nice, recently remodeled but still had a touch of character (like the bathrooms). I'm giving this place a very good review because of the view, the pop culture history (Dirty Dancing) and the room, but there are some issues that need to be addressed. For example, why in the world would you close the pool and hot tub at 6pm (sign by pool says 8pm, but lodge info says 6pm)?! That gives your guests very little time after check in to enjoy it and we pay a considerable amount to be there,not to mention the drive we have to make to get there. Who wouldn't want to sit in the hot tub in the evening and check out the starry night? We could have made it but we were hungry and decided to eat at Harvest, their only real restaurant on site, and we waited FOREVER to get a table, after being told it would only be 10 mins,so by the time we got out of there it was 8:30pm. I will address the issues with the restaurant under Harvest. It would also be nice if the rooms could come with a refrigerator. Especially with the issues of the restaurant plus not everyone wants to pay $18+++ for a meal, so if there was a refrigerator people could brings some snacks. It was AWESOME that they had ceiling fans and box fans in the rooms and the room was very pleasant over night. The lake is expected to make a comeback next summer so it was sad to see that it was barely there, but they had a geologist at the bar and he was explaining what was going on with it and it was fascinating. If you are able, the pool looked very nice and the hot tub too but since it closed so early, we did not get a chance to see it. Overall a nice experience, but it could be better.
