We loved our stay at DTR. Our gorgeous suite in the High Lonesome Lodge was the epitome of cozy ski lodge, complete heated tile flooring, bathroom sauna, fireplace, and breathtaking views. Some of the staff went above and beyond to make our experience special. The gentleman (Tyler?) at the coffee shop, Anthony at the stable, and restaurant staff were especially polite and attentive. Unfortunately, we got very little information or welcome at check in, and were literally handed a map and room keys--unaware that our lodging was in an entirely different building.
Another point to be aware of when staying at DTR is that you should be prepared to walk. If you stay in a cabin, you will basically need a car or be ready to walk 1/2 a mile to and from the resort center. Resort transportation is available when scheduled.
The only issue I had with DTR during our 4 day stay was the limited choice of food. Dining is limited to the coffee shop and 2 restaurants (one of which is more upscale and not what we wanted, traveling with kids). The food situation gets a bit monotonous and I think the menu could benefit from expansion or a little C-store (however the food here is delish). If we stay here again, I will be sure to request a room with kitchenette. Overall, a fabulous place for a relaxing long weekend with tons of amenities. We hope to visit again soon!
