We visited for four days and nights and had a great, relaxing stay. The location is up on the shoulder of the river valley. High enough to have great views across the water and in both directions along the valley, but not too high to have easy access to the water for canoeing. The lodge itself is modern, spacious, well equipped, and well maintained; and reminiscent of a country inn or mountain lodge. Highlights were the large deck overlooking the valley, and the hammock, both of which found continuous use.The location is very quiet. There is at least one bald eagle in the area. We very found it to be very peaceful and serene, and we had a great stay. We would stay again, and stay longer.
