Just a short drive out of town, maybe five miles...the Lodges is in a beautiful spot. The concept is good but the advertising leads you to believe something other than what you get. We expected a lodge setting with a kitchenette, etc. What we got was not that at all. Maybe I read more than what we actually booked. We got the "Corporal's Quarters" in the lodge NJ. We truly felt that we were in someone's guest room. The other side of the adjoining door was another family. It was a nice room, but it was exactly that....a small room. One straight back chair and no table at all. I ended up opening up the ironing board to use as a table for my laptop and accessories and using the only chair to access the "table". Thankfully, the family on the other side of the door was not noisy, even though they had several young boys with them. I would hate to think what it would have been like had it been a "party crowd".
This is a great place for families and I would highly recommend it for just that so that at least you have a family member on the other side of the door to the corporal's quarters. Even if we had booked the other part of the lodge, I would have been uncomfortable with someone we didn't know just on the other side of the door. If we do return, which we would like to do, we will book the entire lodge and have more family with us.
The bed was not the most comfortable one we slept in. In fact, on our journey across country, it was probably the most uncomfortable. Management really should look into more comfortable bedding. The continental breakfast is ok. If you have the kitchenette, it would be better to make your own. All in all, it was a pleasant stay and we definitely would go back.
