The cabin was extremely comfortable, clean, and well-maintained. The grounds were very well-kept and attractive. The service was outstanding as well. I would enthusiastically recommend this hotel to others.

We stayed three nights over the Memorial Day Holiday. The rustic decor is a bit dated, but very clean and cozy. The king bed was comfy, the kitchen well stocked , and the price reasonable. We enjoyed the patio, with its gas firepit and nice chairs. It has a real " mountain cabin vibe" away from the craziness and traffic...

We stayed for 3 nights over this Memorial Weekend. We found the room to be very clean and comfortable. Loved the "mountain" themed decor. We made good use of the kitchen - found it to be well-stocked with everything necessary. We loved the brightly colored lanterns that welcomed us the first night. We will come again.

We booked a room in the Lodge for my mom on her 80th birthday and can only say that it was the most wonderful stay for the most wonderful Mom:) The room was extraordinary - so comfortable and clean - and the hosts were exceptionally friendly and accommodating.

We chose one of the 4 cabins at Shadow Mountain Lodge based in large part to the reviews found online. We were not disappointed. The cabin was in exceptional condition, clean, quiet and very romantic. It rained almost the entire 4 days we were there but we didn't care. The cabin is so well equipped and cozy that we rarely...

Hotels were all booked up, so settled with Shadow Mountain Lodge. I've always preferred a hotel than some place privately owned as the amenities and comfort level are often times hit and miss.

We are so glad that you found us. A small family owned business like ours competes with the big budget box hotels by offering more and better amenities as well as a location that cannot be beat. It is rewarding when folks like you finally find us. Please tell others who are just like you.
