A great birthday getaway. My wife, 4 year old, and 1 year old decided to stay at the lodge for my and my 1 year old's birthday. When we arrived 2 hours before checking, rather than berating me for being early, the receptionist encouraged me to check back every hour to see if our room was ready. When we finally checked in, the process was smooth and efficient. We found the rooms to be clean, spacious, and relaxing. We ate at Elements for dinner - the dining room gave us that rustic lodge feeling that we so love. The food was good but nothing I would go out of my way for. The best part of our stay was being able to go hiking and come back to our room to relax a bit and then go out again without having to drive anywhere. I would highly recommend the lodge for anyone who loves hiking and would like a comfortable room to relax in after a day of enjoying well kept trails and taking in the beautiful waterfalls and natural surroundings.
