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!

There were 17 in our group, 9 kids and 8 adults. We had been at the base of the hill enjoying the unlimited adventures. We paid $5 extra for the adventure pass and received a $10 voucher for Sunspot. I had made reservations, but due to lightning in the area, the lift was shut down for a half hour, but they held our reservation. The view from Sunspot is fantastic. The bison burger with bacon was excellent, the half pound beef burgers with bacon were extremely good as well. According to everyone, everything we ordered was good. Our waiter was right there the entire time. Water glasses never got empty, empty plates were taken away right away. The price was a bit high, but the coupon s bought it back down to a reasonable price.

We rode the ski lift up around lunch time and had to stay and eat. They had great food and you can't beat the view! The buffalo burger was great as was the citrus pecan salad. Very enjoyable meal.

After an awesome hike up from the base, I enjoyed a glass of prosecco and the caprese with burrata cheese... Added a little toasted ciabatta bread and holy cow it was delicious! I don't like a big meal at lunch so this was perfect. The servers were attentive and friendly, and the manager stopped by to chat. I'm leaving with a smile on my face! Oh this view and ambiance (love the music). I'll be back soon.

This was a pricey fondue meal but worth it because of the wonderful views from the gondola. Someone suggested we book this and we are really glad we did. You can get a full dinner for quite a bit more, but the fondue meal was perfect for us.
