This is a great place to stay - but don't expect anything grand. The rooms are small. There is no A/C which doesn't seem like a big deal that high up. But once you close your door at night, there is no way to get a cross breeze. The meals are great but pricey. Many families brought their own food with them. The hikes are great. Do all of them! At the end of July, there was still snow on the mountain - meanwhile it was over 100 degrees on the East Coast. The view is great, too. Parking is really tight.
