My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Lodge. The setting is beautiful, but the front desk staff needs to explain certain things concerning the inn. We were just handed a map and told how to drive to the room. That was all. We couldn't get anything on the TV, because, unknown to us, the only way to access the stations were on the back of the map. We had a gorgeous fireplace with instructions to turn this way to light. We have a gas fireplace at home, but this fireplace would not work. We learned 4 days later that you need a light to light the fireplace, but there was none available. The bathroom vanity was in pretty rough shape, with plywood chips on the face of it. Through out the room, though spacious and nice, were a lot of paint chips that needed touching up.The manager or owner, bumped into us about 6 times over our stay, but never awknowleged us in any manner. The staff at the bar were extremely nice and accommodating. I would rate these accommodation as a 3.
