We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful lodge! The room was wonderful! We enjoyed the hot tub on the deck! The food at the Latchspring was excellent! I would recommend this to anyone. The canyon is so beautiful and the hiking is easy to see the falls.

More info about the trails is needed. Wider variety of meals at lunch and supper. Keep the door to the hot tub open at all times, we are not 10 years old and should not have to ask to use it. GO BACK TO WOOD BURNING FIRE PLACE!

Hkamp, Thank you for your review. I do apologize that you did not thoroughly enjoy your stay at our Lodge. We do close the hot tubs at midnight and reopen them at 10:00 so that they are always clean and safe for all of our guests. We will also be transitioning back to a wood burning fireplace from the gas...

This lodge is beautiful, relaxing, and definitely worth the trip. The atmosphere is like a retreat from the daily grind instead of a hotel. We will definitely be back. Only downfall is all the stairs and no elevator, so next time we will just pack lighter.

Marcyp400, Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I do hope that our front desk staff offered you a room on the first floor, if available, and offered assistance with your luggage. Of course the view from the second floor is sometimes worth the hike! Thank you again and we look forward...

We spent a week, just after peak season. The lodge was beautiful and staff all very helpful. The drive to the lodge, through the canyon was breathtaking. The restaurant is pricey, but not too pricey for a special occasion.

The lodge is peaceful and inviting . A large fire place welcomes you to the lobby and huge picture windows fame a beautiful canyon view. We try to stay twice a year. The service at the restaurant is generally poor, but the food is very good and with the views one almost forgets the quality of the service.

I stumbled on this place while looking for hiking trails in the area. I opted to stay with the off-season rate being much more than reasonable.
