Spirit Lake Wilderness Resort
Ranked #1 of 1 Carcross B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 July 2006

We stayed one night at Spirit Lake. The motel room we stayed in was clean and the beds were wonderfully comfortable. The decor was quite unique, feeling much more like a log cabin than a motel room. No TVs, so this is truly just a place to sleep for the night. They also offer an RV park, campsites, cottage rooms and log cabins. I know for sure the log cabins have no electricity or running water, but there's a comfort station for use (which looked nice and clean) with restrooms and showers.
Spirit Lake, at the back of the property, is absolutely gorgeous. Mountain-fringed with clear blue-green water that looks like it would be great for taking a dip in (it was too cool for swimming during our June visit).
Food at the restaurant was quite good.

A few criticisms:
-The motel room floors creaked quite a bit when you walked across them. People walking around in adjacent rooms would likely awaken light sleepers.
-The water in the rooms appears to be well water. It has quite an aroma to it and is unpleasant to drink.
-I realize Spirit Lake is a "wilderness resort", but I can't help but feel it could be more of a resort unto itself if more "creature comforts" were available. People might be inclined to stay several nights, as opposed to stopping for a night while on their way to somewhere else. There's certainly lots to see and do, but personally, I wouldn't be interested in staying here more than one night.

Overall, a fairly pleasant experience.
