The staff was nice and the room was clean. I found the food to be mediocre. The vegetables at dinner were cold. Breakfast buffet was just okay. If you are okay with a lot of small children running everywhere, and I do mean everywhere, then this may not be the place for you. Lot's of very loud families who have...

We always enjoy this place! First stay in the cabins: we found them roomier than the lodge. Alll five of us could stay in one using the bunks and fold out couch. Not all cabin rooms have a table for cards etc. no food prep area is provided, though we had a refrigerator (at additional cost). The cabin proved a...

The lodge and grounds are beautiful. The rooms are clean and front desk customer service is great. The bad news is the quality, prices, and customer service in the restaurant. First of all the menu is very limited, and worse yet the food is all processed and obviously microwaved. Frozen vegetables, powdered mashed potatoes, etc. The food is bland with...

Nice lodge; love the history, large fireplace, riverview patio. Room outlet by bed had one plug attached to light switch, so had to switch things around to get Cpap machine to work all night, and no fridge; but love the proximity to Grafton and Alton and the various trails to explore. Superb staff and good food in the restaurant.

i went to a conference here and stayed one night. VERY overpriced for the small room. The sheets were stained and the bathroom was not clean. To top it off, the front desk service is terrible. They are not friendly, don't smile and not empathetic-did not even offer to "compensate" for the 'dirty" room. There was no apology. I will...

The Lodge's Great Room & view of the IL R. from the patio are beautiful. Ditto the surrounding area. Staff is great. Rooms are large & comfortable. However, the rooms need small refrigerators and perhaps microwaves. Calling to make reservations is impossible. The phone system cuts out & extension nos. cannot be heard. For 2 yrs.

We spent two nights here in February (37th wedding anniversary). The lodge is a lovely space, a 1930s CCC project that has been updated and very well-preserved. There is a range of lodging options, and we chose a king room with river view. Ended up on first floor facing river, but had to look over or around the air handling...
