The property was remote and beautiful. We loved the rustic style cabins. With the restaurant closing for "off season" it would be convenient to have an offering of microwavable food items/snacks for purchase since restaurants and stores are at least a 30 minute drive away.

Not sure what everyone is complaining about the helicopters didn't bother me at all, they start flying at 1030am anyway. They don't come in and out that often and they don't idle for long periods of time. One or two minutes and they are gone. Lastly they aren't the loud type. Kinda of fun to watch. Wish I could have gone but they were sold out. If you go there I suggest booking the ride in advance. Envious...

The property is all about style and lacks substance and follow through. The front desk said on check in that no reservations were necessary for dinner, but the location was hosting a wedding party that took up most of the dining seats--not coordinated. The staff manifests signs of arrogance and needs a refresher on hospitality management and guest relations. The resort claims to use local produce providers, but the salad was clearly not local and was not properly cleaned. The location claims this is destination dining, but it was just adequate. The breakfast buffet was industrial food and not well maintained or monitored. Continual helicopter flights make this location not for those who want quiet or calm.

Loved it!
We loved our stay here. The cabins are very cute and comfortable! The included breakfast was delicious. I would say don't plan on sleeping in though, the helicopters start flying around by 7:30/8 in the morning so maybe bring ear plugs if you want to sleep later

The lodge was in a beautiful area and we enjoyed the restaurant but we didn’t really “get” the cabins. The bed was against the wall (not easy for us seniors!) and there was an empty space about 10’x12’ by the window. It would have been nice to have a couch or something to sit on rather than 2 hard backed chairs. We didn’t mind that there was no tv but be aware. This is more of a sports type area.
