Liked: Amenities
Overall we loved staying here! It was a neat locally owned lodge in a really cool community. We were just traveling through but we would have loved to have stayed for a couple of days. There was a miss communication. I booked through Expedia and then called to confirm through the number listed & talked to the booking company. When we got there was no record of our registration. They worked it out for us but it was frustrating. My advice, call the lodge directly.
