Property was cozy and cute. I’ve stayed at hotel suites and was concerned this property would be too small. It was perfect in size for functionality. The decor is warm and inviting. The room with bunks worked well for my daughter and her best friend. I hung a sheet up for privacy because there’s no door. The girls and my husband really liked the look and feel vs a hotel. The front door parking is very convenient. Location is 2-3 miles from restaurants which makes getting food easy. The highlight was roasting marshmallows out on the fire pit after dinner and enjoying the quiet evening. Mateo, on-site manager, was very welcoming and helpful. We will definitely return in the winter. I was in #14 and only complaint is, neighbor right next to me sharing entrance area kept going in and out, closing the door hard and talking loud. I could hear everything well until midnight. Other than that, lodge experience was great!

I loved how the rooms where nicely decorated. The TV selection was awesome. Loved the fire pit display. The only thing that I did not like was our shower door was put on wrong and it was hard to open and close. I felt like the door was going to shader on me.
