“Nice location, older but updated nicely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

The location is great, close to town, but quiet. We stayed in Unit 201 which is a unit away from the multi-units. You have the entire downstairs to yourself with a unit above, which was empty.
Fireplace in the main room that has a king bed in it, and then another room with 2 beds in it.
Hot tub was nice.

Would stay again, good price.

You stayed in our rustic cabin suite which we have not remodeled to our new design plan; we will be doing this soon. The area around this room is great; you have a little secluded area by the pond and grassy area.

Thanks for the great stay- the staff was very helpful they went above and beyond. The staff had someone pick up the little wedding cake I had order and put it in the cabin and had a bottle of wine and wine glasses waiting for us. As well as made us reservations for a romantic dinner for us. We will be back!

Our luxury log cabin is the perfect place for romance, it’s big enough to have your own space and stretch out, and intimate enough to be cozy in front of the fire. Along with a fully stocked kitchen and breathtaking views you couldn’t ask for more. Glad it was perfect for you.

We have stayed there for the last three years and we can't say enough good things about this Lodge! The rooms are very spacious and they also have a wonderful play area for childern. The prices are amazing and you can not beat the location. Our family loves staying here and I am sure yours will too!

Room Tip: Ask for the lodging by the pond! You will love the view and depending on what time of year you go, y...

I took my wife there the weekend of 2/11/12 for a quiet getaway for her birthday. It was very quiet, the staff even delivered the Roses I had ordered when they arrived. The fact that we could take our dogs and let them off leash was a plus! They have an area near the pond that we could exercise our dogs, awesome! The proximity to their hot tub from our room was a plus as well. The wood burning fireplace in the room was wonderful and the view was fantastic!

Room Tip: Room 312 was very accommodating, great mountain views and can't get any closer to the hot tub!

The Cabin is my favorite too; and we keep it competitively priced year round so reserve early, it sells fast.

We stayed in the most beautiful log cabin operated by the Discovery Lodge. It was gorgeous and the price was unbelievabably low. We'll return a soon a we can!

Glad you enjoyed the Cabin! We also have a 2 story house next to the Cabin if, next time you come out, you'll have more people. The Cabin is one of our most popular. Book as soon as you can! You just let us know when :)
Thanks so much for taking the time to write us such a nice review. Take care and we'll see you next time!
