This was our fourth trip to this property which in itself tells you our opinion of the facilities and staff.
The people are super, from the bellman who meets your car upon arrival, to Brandon, the Maitre 'D, to the college age summer employees who serve in the dining room.
The meals are always a highlight, especially the Thursday night seafood buffet. I have never had 1 selection which I regretted choosing.
The rooms are good--- not great. The decorations and furniture are excellent but one source of annual aggravation is the air conditioning which has not worked properly on any of our visits. In addition, the staff seems at a loss to be able to explain how to use so it works properly. As the Lodge is only open May through October, this should be a priority as even in the mountains it can be hot and humid. If the current system is so hard to operate, then perhaps it is time ti change the system.
The baths, while small, are well appointed but are in need of a shelf or shelves where guests can put their toiletries etc.
All in all, this is a great property but can still improve to a full 5 rating.
