We spent New Year's weekend at the Alpine Lodge with friends and had a great time -- what a find! Our room number and key code to access the door were sent to us via email prior to our arrival; therefore, there was no need to check in (while there isn't an official "front desk," it actually saved time). The on-site manager, Casey, was just a phone call away, if needed. We stayed in a standard king room which was absolutely immaculate and extremely cozy. Our friends stayed in a handicap standard king (with extra room in the bathroom) and luxury king (which was nice given the extra space, gas fireplace and Jacuzzi tub). Casey kindly showed us the Eagles Nest suite which is absolutely beautiful with two bedrooms, gourmet kitchen/bar, fireplace, desk and pull out couch. Since it only has one bathroom (the two sinks and separate toilet closet are a plus), it would be difficult for two couples to share (at least for us), but it would be a great space for a family.
The lodge is located directly on Main Street -- in between Marsha's (hearty breakfast -- great cure for a new year's hangover!) and Cafe Sarah (great coffee drinks, breakfast burrito and many delectable treats!). For dinner, we went to Bar Vino two nights in a row (phenomenal tapas wine bar with 100 wines and 30 beers -- see my other review); Lorenzo's (rack of lamb was good -- didn't care for duck as it was fattier than usual and the sauce was bland). Trappers Tavern is located in the same inn next to Lorenzo's -- really nice bar with great staff. There is also a Grand Union right down the street.
The Gore Mountain shuttle picked us up in the Alpine Lodge parking lot, so it couldn't be any more convenient. While the trials were limited due to lack of snow, we will definitely be back. Thanks, Casey, for your great disposition (and thanks, Sharon, for renovating this place). :-)
