Incredible views and peaceful stay, but a challenge to get there through the traffic. Well worth it in the end. Great meals and good service. The rooms were clean and the staff courteous. Enjoyed walking the streets around the lodge.

The Hotel: Since it is a lodge/homestay it would be unfair of me to judge it to the standards of a properly serviced hotel. As far as homestays go, I would give this 5 stars. It is at an excellent location. We reached here after the first snow of the season. There is snow everywhere around this property and when...
