This was a beautiful, peaceful lodge to stay at, but I would not describe it as "luxurious." The property, scenery and building are all beautiful. The reading and gathering areas are cozy and beautiful. It was relaxing to listen to the waves at night. The rooms were very small and basic. No TV, no telephones, no cell phone reception. Our bed was small and not very comfortable (we did not gave a select comfort bed). Only bar soap was provided, no shampoo or other toiletries.
We ate breakfast in the great dining hall. It is a beautiful room and the food and service were great.
I might stay here again for a peaceful getaway. If I do, I will be sure to pack more toiletries and a hairdryer.
