While the Normaway Inn's main floor of their small lodge is still quite nice, the cabins really need help. We stayed in cabin 12 and the exterior door stuck, making locking and unlocking very difficult. The wooden stoop in front of the door had three rotted wood slats that had been well painted, but were still missing wood. Inside, the couch showed such signs of years of wear, I wouldn't even try sitting on it. The bathroom heater didn't work. The woodstove door's glass panel was non-existent on one side. The bedspread was very outdated. The bed, however, was firm enough for a good night's sleep. The dining room's food was above average and the evening entertainment in the lodge's living room was enjoyable, as well as educational about the local culture and evolving Gaelic music scene. The drive into the lodge had significant pot holes. While the staff was very accomodating, it was not at all what we expected or were used to when paying $140 a night. It is amazingly quiet and remote and probably the best accomodations for miles around, it's just really in need of some TLC.
