We stayed here for just a nice three day weekend to relax and unwind in the mountains while hitting the hot springs in town. The lodge was very clean and checking in was very easy and I love seeing the little dogs that they had. We stayed in one of the double queen rooms (OMG a real key, no card) and we both enjoyed the unique design and the way that it was decorated to match the rustic feel and look of our mountain setting. Our room was strait across from the Sunlight ski lift and I really enjoyed waking up in the morning and seeing people lining up waiting for the lift to start and it brought back very fond memories of when I was kid waiting at the bottom of Winterpark for the lifts to start.
The breakfast was free and very good. We didn’t get a chance to watch the TV upstairs but it is a great place for kids to stretch out and watch some cartoons. There was a wedding the Saturday night we stayed and we never heard them and I guess they didn’t hear us so that was nice. I did like that the owners were dressed up for the wedding and politely ignored the guy in shorts, flip-flops, and Mohawk returning from 3 hours at the hot springs and a wonderful dinner at Tequila’s.
The rooms were clean, the beds were great for us, the food was very nice, and it was out of town and quiet so I have no illusions that we will be retuning in the spring for the horseback riding and more solitude.
