Not only lodge was fantastic, the area is beautiful ! There was a playroom for kids and a game room. The swimming area had a waterfall and a hot tub. Also, served breakfast. Coffee and water was always available!

Extremely helpful staff as we had a hard time finding using GPS. Breakfast good, room comfortable & clean. Not many good restaurants in town. Cute bunny rabbit eating the grassy area. Nice fire pit outside.
