Stunningly beautiful setting. The old part of the lodge is wonderful. But, the newly renovated cabins are ok. The cabins have absolutely no sound proofing. Unfortunately, they have put 4 units per cabin and if someone is staying in a unit near you, you can hear EVERYTHING. Also, it seems like there is no manager working. The few staff they have are not trained. On the other hand, the food was very good. But, the chef will not be there next year. I loved the setting and the old parts of the lodge. I did not like the newly renovated cabins (and they are not cheap) and the lack of staff.
This place could be SOO GREAT! But, they need an experienced manager to run the place and a decent contractor/designer to re-do those cabins.
I would not recommend this place for young children.
