Tenahead Mountain Lodge exceeded my expectation in all aspects with regards to luxury and service. Other than the rather daunting and 'road less traveled' journey to get there our stay there was exceptional. This is not your average 5 star lodge in the mountain. This is about as good as you are going to get if you are looking for...

Peace and quite with the best views and great food. Stayed one night and felt like we rested a whole week. The fireplace in the rooms creates a real majestic feel and warms it up nicely. Beautiful view from anywhere on the property. Will come back soon with friends/family.

A beautifully appointed lodge in a spectacular landscape. A perfect place to chill and unwind, but also close enough to visit Rhodes for some fun or Tiffindale for some Skiing. The food was abundant and delicious and beautifully presented. The rooms spacious and comfortable. The staff obliging and pleasant.

Having traveled on the unpaved, rough road in high winds, it was a delight to get to the lodge.

The honest bar helped a lot...OK, we did take time to adjust to the slooow internet, but this too was a great...

We loved our stay! Such a beautiful location and the hotel is fabulous. The drive up to the lodge is breath-taking - 4x4 definitely recommended. We will definitely be back, hopefully in the snow again.

We were welcomed and made to feel at home straight away. The staff were so friendly and helpful. When we saw our room, WOW, fantastic. The chef cooked up a storm, such a yummy dinner and breakfast. We would recommend staying here to everyone. The views and setting to die for.
