Cattail Lodge is absolutley outdated and dirty! The carpet upstairs is dirty and smelly. Seems it hasn't been cleaned or replaced in years. There were fingerprints all over the back glass door and on every cupboard which sort of ruins your appetite when trying to prepare a meal. The fridge does not stay cold, so we would wake up to warm milk in the morning. The shower downstairs is so extremely old and does not have any pressure. You have to keep adjusting the knobs to take a quick shower. Neither of the two toliets flush well, which poses a problem when you have 10 people that need to use the restroom. The wifi they advertise never worked the entire 5 days we were there. The lake is pretty, but its only a few feet deep in most places which made fishing for the kids a huge disappointment. The staff was nice enough, but never took the time to ask us how our stay was which I thought was strange. And last but not least, we were disappointed that canyon lake is basically part of a neighborhood. It is not nestled or secluded in the mountains like we were anticipating. We were okay with the fact that the place is old, but we could not stand that it was so dirty. We would not stay again, and would not recommend to anyone traveling that way....sorry :(
