On arrival there’s very steep hill down to lodge & lodge lower parking area which that night froze over & was then covered in ice & not sanded at all for 3 days we stayed.My husband finally sanded it himself on departure(sand inside bar door entrance)due to having to get up the hill with our truck & snowmobile trailer while the owner,Robert Hankey,stood there observing.There was no food available"due to no one being there, guess we didn't count"for 2 days of 3 stayed.The room first 2 days was freezing cold, which gas fireplace helped take chill off. Then on 3rd day room was 100° & we had to sleep with one window open(second window wouldn't open due to rotten sill)& no covers & still unbearable.Jacuzzi tub had scum line & shower door clear caulk had what looked like black mold behind it but inn manager Sue Ellen Mathers said it was just stain.There were two spots on the ceiling,one in the entry way & one in the bathroom damaged from water leak with sheet rock hanging down alittle.Continental breakfast consisted of stale bagels,english muffins,small boxes cereal and let's not forget the fermenting fruit cut up in bowl floating in fermenting juice served 2 days in a row even after mentioned to Inn owner Robert Hankey.One morning we left to go get GOOD breakfast & left"Do Not Disturb"sign on room door & locked room door to return & find bed made, no clean sheets just made, despite the sign.Inside room the door had heavy duty hook & eye lock but eye was broke off so there was no way to lock door besides doorknob lock, we mentioned to owner but it was not fixed.One good thing is the bartending & cook STAFF is very friendly.The one dinner we did get was very good.My advise is go somewhere else to stay & “if” the bar & restaurant are open go eat & drink only.Hope this helps the next victim.For the money per night it was not at all what we expected after looking at the web site & reading couple of reviews.The manager Sue Ellen did give us a $50.00 gift card when we left after our conversation about heat & mold but we WON’T be using it.
