Awesome Lication
Awesome location, Lodge is really nice, food outstanding, service great. Grounds around the lodge are in good condition but it’s such a shame that all the amazing work that had been done up above - hen house, bee aviary, Crumpy’s Camp, garden area has not been maintained

Property is amazing. Room is AWFUL. Worse than a motel 6. Not sure how this place has a 4 star designation, the room itself doesn’t even deserve 2 stars. That asides, staff is also great.
