We visited The Lodge at Sunspot for a well publicized free event to view the 92% eclipse (couldn't view the total eclipse from there). There was a party/concert atmosphere as 200-300 or more other people joined us. The staff brought out lawn chairs and gave away eclipse viewing glasses. You could order drinks and we opted for a couple of bottles of water which we were not charged for because they were not completely chilled. When the eclipse was over, we had lunch in the dining room. We did have to wait in a long line and then another 20 minutes after we got to the head of the line. But it was understandable considering the popularity of this once-in-a-lifetime event. We bought a package that included chair lift tickets and a $10 voucher off lunch (the only way to get up to the Lodge is on the lift or to hike up the mountain). The food was rather pricey, but delicious. Service was attentive, views were spectacular, eclipse watching was unforgettable!
