I stayed with my husband at the lodge for one night over Thanksgiving. We checked into the lodge on Sunday, the check-in process was easy and painless. I figured you had to ask for a hair dryer at the desk so i did that and they gave me one, also I asked for an ice bucket and bag of ice and they gave me that too. (They also offered wine glasses, cork screw)
That evening we had dinner at the lodge for Thanksgiving and it was good. It wasn't amazing by any means but it was good. In past years they have had there buffet/ thanksgiving banquet in the banquet hall but they said there numbers were down this year so they had it in the restaurant, which was fine but the banquet room is nicer.
Later in the evening some family came back to the hotel room and we all went down to the sauna/ hot tubs. The sauna room/ hot tun area needs some help. It's nice inside but everything is broken, the hot tub works sparatically, there are jets that don't go on etc, the sauna wasn't working at all and another guest told me it hadn't worked for years and the shower didn't work at all. Also there is no toilet in the sauna/ hotub room, which will just result in men peeing outside and ladies in the hot tub gross! The rooms are very out of date. This place could be so amazing with a little TLC it's not far off it has good bones, a nice gas fireplace in the corner, lush duvets with some plush towels and bathrobes, it has the potential for sure, because the one thing you can't buy is the breathtaking scenery and this place lacks none of that.
