Going to The Outing Lodge is a bit like going to a wealthy aunt's house: it's very friendly and filled with character, but in need of some upkeep.
The common areas are very rustic and charming, and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. We were in the Amelia Earhart room, and it also had character, but I must say it had some odd smells and the carpet was ancient and in need of replacement. The bathroom is nicely tiled (marble on floors and walls) and has a rather old jacuzzi tub which we didn't get around to trying out. We didn't have hot water in the sink, but we did in the shower.
The breakfast is nothing spectacular, but it's nice. Scrambled eggs, cinnamon rolls, fruit, coffee, etc.
I think the main problem is that it's slightly over-priced. At least the Amelia Earhart room is. If it was $100 - $150 / night, I'd say we got your money's worth. At over $200/night, I think most experienced travelers will expect a bit more of a consistent (albeit "rustic") polish to the place. But like visiting your great aunt, it's hard to get too disturbed about some of the inadequacies of the property when treated in a very friendly, helpful manner.More
