If you are touring Plumas county make this your base. Rooms are clean, well appointed, beds are comfy and the staff is polite. What's missing is important; quick access to food. Note this lodge is 5 miles outside of Graeagle, it is on Route 70 and the address on google maps is listed as Portola. If you want to be near the golf in Graeagle or have walking access to places to eat then stay elsewhere. But keep in mind this lodge is quiet and very pleasant.
The HDTV is adequate though a wee bit small considering the viewing distance. What is annoying is the inability to access the inputs on the TV to allow connection of your own devices.
The on-site restaurant was quite disappointing in that it is only open on Fridays and Saturdays, yet the website stated nightly specials.
Make sure you prepare yourself to get breakfast someplace else. The continental breakfast lacks muffins/danish, offers only one type of bread(french toast) and defrosted bagels. The bigger problem is the location of the items in the foyer as the table setup is too small to allow more than 1 person at a time to obtain items. If you are working on increasing your patience, it will offer excellent practice.
If the rooms had a microwave in addition to the refrigerator you could make your own.
The terrace is wonderful, making for a pleasant place to relax except that the lodge staff play their choice of music over the speakers on the terrace making for a bit of annoying intrusion into what could be a very tranquil setting.
The grounds offer the ability to play boccie, horseshoes, or even sit on a dock over a pond.
