We stayed in the Peregrine Room at the Lodge over the weekend. The room was huge with a great fireplace, although until they decide "how" to use the fireplace it is not available. They just purchased some kind of artificial logs where you insert the material to burn, but it costs around $24 per fire. So right now, they won't let you use it. The bathroom was great. Separate glass shower and a bathtub that I would almost consider a hot tub. It easily could have been used by three or four people. The house needs a little TLC. Nothing major, paint on some of the closet doors, new toilet seat, etc. Little stuff. I don't think I would have wanted to pay $325 a night, which is high season, but the $175 we paid was well worth it. It includes a buffet breakfast of eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereal, fruit, etc. One of the best parts is an early morning three hour tour with a guide. It is $47 per person. We had a very knowledgable volunteer who had been working there about 11 years. That was well worth the price. We learned quite a lot about all the endangered animals that live there. All in all, the weekend was awesome. I would recommend the Lodge, especially the Peregrine room to anyone.
