This was our second trip to Gorman Lodge, (the first time we skied in in a blizzard.) This was easier, as we drove to the lodge itself. We stayed in cabin 1, a rustic log cabin with a wood stove, a double and a single bed. Rockers on the porch are perfect for watching the sunset. Meals are included, and a bag lunch provided for hikes during the day. Chef Dave provides his fabulous meals (served family style at long tables in the main lodge) and sings while he cooks. The staff is great and very pleasant and attentive. There are canoes for paddling or fishing, and lots of activities nearby. Occasional thru hikers come down from the Appalachian Trail to work for stay, and have great stories to tell.
