Beautifully decorated with antiques, and equipped with the legend of its ghost "Rebecca", the Lodge is a relaxing place. They gave us an upgrade in the retreat suites, a sweet treat for us. After our 1 night there, we wished we had booked a longer stay, but we needed to be on our way. Our "suite" was a several room abode complete with a quiet porch, small refrigerator, coffee maker, and sink in the "living room" that also had a gas fireplace. The bedroom had a large canopy bed. And outside our door was a common area that had a small kitchen area and entertainment space, likely used for groups staying together (for retreats, I suppose). It was a short walk up to the main hotel where we could wander the halls looking at old photos and learn the history of Cloudcroft and the origins of the lodge. Although it could have used a bit of a facelift with furnishings and finishings, the comfortableness outweighed any of that. We had a jacuzzi in the bathroom, which we enjoyed, and double sinks (something I rarely see in hotel rooms), everything was in fine working order, and, altogether, we had a wonderful and relaxing stay at the Lodge.
