Two nights in cabin #404 set at the back of the property. Almost no noise from the highway and nobody in front of us to hide the mountains. The cabin had 2 comfortable queen beds, a small equipped kitchen with a table and chairs, a fireplace, a small bathroom, nice linens and towels, cute decoration and a private porch with...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in cabin 404. Cabins 402, 403, and 404 are really cozy and perfect for couples and small families, or even a single person. But with ten cabins to choose from, one is sure to be right for each situation and family. Your well thought out review will help other travelers as they...

We stayed one night in this beautiful location and quickly realized we had screwed up by not spending more of our time here. First of all, my husband came out of the office post check-in with a huge grin on his face. I asked him what was so funny and he said, "Nothing funny, I was just having a lovely...

We had an extra day and elected to stay near PS. Called the High Country Lodge on a whim for one night stay in the high season of the summer without much a plan. Lynn found a night for us and gave me fishing advice (which was attached to our reservation when we checked in!). This was a very accommodating...

Spent three nights at the High Country Lodge in one of the studio cabins. The resort is well run and meticulously maintained. The cabin was nice and met our needs notwithstanding a tight-space bathroom. The hot-tubs are a nice touch and after the first day of fighting a large crowd at breakfast we opted for the Junction down the road....

Looks like you enjoyed staying in our cabin, and had an excellent stay here. Sometimes there is a rush during breakfast, however, just coming in a few minutes earlier or later usually solves that, and we constantly restock to keep food levels consistent. The trail was designed as a family hiking trail and wildlife observation area, and because of that...

Overall, it was a positive experience, and I would go back. We recently stayed in a 2 bdrm cabin. It was nicely appointed, with a full kitchen stocked with everything a family would need to cook. The beds were not that comfortable, but we managed to sleep fairly well, considering. It is a large complex, with a beautiful open lawn...
