    Thank you for leaving us a review, the hotel renovations were completed May 2016. I apologize that the renovations were not apparent and for the bathroom door being sticky. We hope you will stay with us again in the future and have a better experience.

    Some of the nicest people you'll ever meet they were helpful and kind and I would stay there again in a heartbeat. The lodge was located next to a restaurant and within walking distance of many other attractions in town

    We do not have a laundry facility on site, but there is a local laundry mat called the Lost Sock, that is only 0.4 miles away.
