I enjoyed my stay only thing was a problem was I stayed on Christmas Day and at night the guests that were outside were loud and laughing all time of night. They were outside at 3am and you could hear there whole conversation and laughing. Check in was smooth and convenient, didn’t use any of the amenities and the property is being renovated. The lodge is approximately a mile away from town.

The Lodge is really nice. Rooms are comfortable without being fancy. All the staff is very helpful and friendly.

Thanks so much for visiting our park and lodge. I am very sorry for the problem that you experienced with the tub drain. If you happen to recall your room number would you mind forwarding that to me so that we can have our maintenance team address that right away? Thanks so much for being our guest and for providing us with your valuable feedback.

The location was great, had a great Mountain View through horrible cloudy windows (windows need major cleaning or be replaced). Expected room to be more up to date, but was very out of date and had to carry luggage up to third floor (no elevator in building we stayed in). Bed was very comfy and we slept well. If you like super clingy shower curtains your going to love your shower, otherwise you’re going to hate how bad it sticks to you while you’re trying to shower...even my 12yo got annoyed.

Thanks so much for visiting our park and lodge. I'm sorry for the issues that you experienced. We are currently undergoing renovations in our lodge. We expect this to be completed by early 2020. It sounds like you stayed in one of our rooms that is yet to be completed. We hope that you will consider coming back once renovations are complete in a few months. We think you will definitely notice the improvements.

Internet & tv were out, apparently a provider issue. No swimming pool or hot tub. Silly resort fee. Room was huge, bed was very comfortable.

Thanks so much for visiting our park and lodge. I'm truly sorry for the problems that you experienced with the Internet and the tv. I am going to follow up with the team to look into this just to make sure it was a temporary service provider related issue. We sincerely appreciate you coming to stay with us and visit our park.

Hi there. I wanted to reach out to thank you for staying with us and also to apologize that we were not able to deliver a pleasant experience for you. We are currently undergoing renovations in all of our lodge rooms. One of the four buildings has just been completed. The other three should be finished by early 2021. I believe these updates will address the concerns that you had, but they obviously did not impact your stay, and we apologize for that.

Barely got to explore all the possibilities. Just the natural surroundings are worth the visit. Absolutely beautiful.
