Located on a lake with hills right out your room's back door. Gorgeous. Super helpful staff. Multiple trails to walk or hike. Reasonable cost. Very clean.

The rooms need updating desperately. The rug is gross. The room is dark and dingy. It’s a nice resort but because of the room I wouldn’t come back unfortunately. Spend a little money remodeling and u would be busy.

If it rains, you're in a Budget Inn room without any views. If it doesn't rain, you're in a Budget Inn room with views of a lake. If it rains, the fog takes over and you can't see more the 20 yards out. Rooms are totally outdated. If the carpets could be updated, that'd be a good start. Nothing $300 about the place. The lodge check-in and bar area is nice, but after that it's all sub-par.

This is a truly beautiful rustic location. Be warned: despite the post says “free wifi” it doesn’t work anywhere on the property. Nor is there cel service. The manager told me they have that information all over the website, but on Expedia there is. I mention except in a few reviews. I had an important business meeting and was panicked to find no internet access through wifi or cell service. There aren’t even phones in the rooms to contact the front desk or other guests. But it is a beautiful place to escape and relax. The hiking is probably fantastic but it was raining while we were there. The building is old - cement brick - like other National park lodges but it was clean with some nice touches. A keurig and good coffee in room. Good heaters. Ask for the upstairs rooms for the balcony. All rooms look out toward the little lake. All seem to require some walking from the parking area and steps. The restaurant and bar have beautiful views. We really enjoyed time in the bar on soft sofas playing cards and drinking local brews.
