“Lovely hotel with friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

We stayed in the "smallest" type room, and it was ample, with a queen sized bed, plus a fold-out couch, with a kitchenette (fridge/freezer/dishwasher/sink/stove). Service was great at every level. We enjoyed the included full breakfast, and ate in the Kanu Lounge a couple times. The truffle fries were pretty unbeatable, with duck bacon, cheese curds, and a delicious thyme gravy.
The fitness center was great (a few treadmills, stationary bikes, 2 elliptical machines, plus a bunch of nautilus machines and free weights). The pool and spa were lovely; we especially enjoyed sitting in the outside hot tub when it was below freezing outside. Highly recommend this hotel.

My husband and I enjoyed a really nice weekend away here. The property is beautiful, Adirondack elegant type style. Fireplaces abound. There's nothing like outdoor hot tubs in the winter. The service everywhere was excellent. There's so much to do here. It was just us this weekend, but it's also a perfect place for families since they have a movie theatre, bowling alley, game room, and s'mores by a fireplace! I enjoyed the spa, and had a nice massage. Nice weekend destination.

Our family( my husband, 9 year old and 4 year old) went for a long weekend. We stayed on te second floor right near the lounge. This place was just perfectly done from the decor, rooms(we had the jr. Suite), food, amenities, and the kids activities. This was worth every penny especially if you utilize this property and just enjoy quiet awesome time with your family. They had a gorgeous indoor/outdoor pool( which we swam at night in 32 degree weather while snowing). This place had a very nice kids club that took the kids out skating, games, hiking, and yes the staff was so great with the kids. It is included in your stay and gives just two hour for parents to enjoy time by the fire or just relaxing. The movies at night, bowling time, and the playroom were really an added fun( all included). Our breakfast was also included and I was expecting a continental style breakfast but instead you are seated in a gorgeous dining room with amazing adirondack decor and burning crackling fire places. The morning buffet was delicious and a lot of variety but good quality food and tis was included in our price. The value of is property was amazing. We did eat in the lounge for dinner. It was a little pricey but the ambiance and staff make up for it. The staff at this resort is to say the least fabulous. There is no need to leave this property. It has everything you would want. We would suggest this to anyone looking for luxury, amazing ambiance, and superior quality. You will not find a more beautiful resort. The room was so cozy with our huge window overlooking the woods and the balcony. The fireplace added a cozy feel as well. They did our dishes(wow) and must say the cleaning staff was awesome and made sure the sofa bed was turned down each night for the kids. I can not imagine anyone complaining about this property unless their standards are truly beyond reality.
My one suggestion for this property would be to offer everything on a holiday weekend. We were really hoping for ice cream parlor on the sunday of veteran's day weekend and the kid camp should be offered as well( only the morning session sunday and no monday morning) especially for a three day weekend. Other than disney world resorts this place has the family resort done to perfection. Thank you for a fabulous and stress free three days. We already can not wait to come back.

We stayed at the property with some friends and we were very pleased with the accommodations. We checked in late and found two turkey sandwiches with chips and apples in the fridge. Very nice, they anticipated we would be hungry! Also there were delicious bags of chocolate chip cookies throughout the room. The in room fire place was so cozy. There was a very nice indoor/outdoor pool. The surrounding grounds and views were breathtaking. Very close to town.

We recently stayed for 2 nights and absolutely love love loved it! Points from my credit card influenced the hotel we picked, but we really hit the jackpot. We were in the jr. suite but nothing felt junior about it. Pure luxury from the heated floor tiles in the bathroom, to the plush over sized towels, to the most comfortable bed I've slept in. We never wanted to leave the room, with the fireplace and comfy living area plus the large wall mounted tv. We could even get our Netflix and Hulu account on the blu ray player. There was a beautiful full kitchen with dishes, pots, pans, etc... a brita dispenser, even a dishwasher (as if). They brought fresh chocolate chip cookies and left them on our kitchen table each day. There was a washer and dryer built in the bathroom, a super deep jetted tub and awesome toiletries from their spa. The tub was so big, I actually felt like a little kid again. Our own private patio overlooked a woodsy area and gorgeous views from the picture window. Everything we could have wanted or needed was covered! We also loved the indoor/outdoor pool and hot tubs. The pool was kinda in a courtyard area. The grounds were beautiful! They had the trees lit up. It was very pretty! They had a game room, bowling alley and movie theater with free popcorn. Would be a great place for my daughters, if I was so inclined to bring a preteen and teenager. Even they could not have possibly been bored here. Unfortunately, we did not get to the spa but it looked lovely. Just too much to try to do in a few days. The restaurant was good as well. Completely worth the splurge.

I celebrated my friend's birthday here in one of The Lodge's timeshare apartments. What could be more relaxing than than a sprawling place, with incredible views and real deep quiet.

There is an abundance of everything - fireplaces, cushy coaches, gourmet cookies, very friendly staff, spa services, inside/outside heated pool with Jacuzzi, skating rink, andgame room with full size bowling. You name it, they have it covered including entertainment for the kids, a gift shop, in apartment laundry and a gourmet restaurant and bar.

Fun and indulgent. A place that it would be very easy to get used to!

Room Tip: Some rooms have enclosed porches, some have outside ones. Let them know which you prefer.

Wife and I stayed three nights this past weekend, and had an incredibly relaxing time. Arguably the nicest hotel either of us have stayed at. The 1BR suite had a full kitchen, 1.5 baths, king size bed, and living room with fireplace. The resort has so many amenities, including a movie theater, gym, game room, bowling alley, pool house, ice rink, and nightly fires for 'smores. Coming off-season you probably don't even have to leave the resort and would still have a great time. We hiked everyday in the freezing rain/snow, and felt amazing pulling back into the lodge parking lot with the scent of wood-burning stoves emanating from within. Highly recommend this hotel!
