We stayed at the Meadowmont in Arnold and I must say that the experience left me encouraged that there are still places where "hospitality" is not simply a word that you place in front of "industry". True hospitality still exists, and it exists here at this clean, well-kept lodge.
Our two year old got sick the night we arrived but we wanted the older girls to still be able to have the snow fun that we had driven 4 hours from San Francisco for. The next morning, my wife and I wanted to be able to switch off taking care of the little one and still get a chance to get out and play in the snow before needing to turn around and drive back to San Francisco.
Pam, the manager, was incredibly kind and, though the room we had booked had already been reserved for that evening, Pam offered to move us to another room that didn't have a reservation that evening. She let us stay *way* past checkout time so that we wouldn't need to take the little one out in the cold.
By all rights she certainly could have charged us for another night, and I half expected it. But there was never a mention of it, and one suspects the thought never even crossed her mind.
Rooms were comfortable, clean and nicely decoreated. Location is great and service is outstanding!
