We had a wonderful time at the Charit Creek Lodge. The mile or so hike in was great but not so challenging that our kids age 2, 3, and 6 couldn't make it down with little assistance. The creek itself was a great spot for the kids as we'll with some deeper holes mixed in with the shallow steam. The food was top notch, cast iron skillet cornbread, spicy turnip greens and blueberry cobbler were the highlights of an amazing dinner which was followed by a huge breakfast the next morning. The kids loved roasting marshmallows by the fire, maybe in a few years we'll be able to join the host Gregg on a 2 mile starlight hike we regretted missing. Gregg's knowledge of the history of the site is impressive, he also led a tour highlighting the long history of the rustic cabins and other structures on site between dinner and dessert. All in all a wonderful and memorable trip, we're looking forward to our next visit!
