I can’t say enough good things about this place. The Cabins (or rooms) are designed with an open floor plan and although they aren’t fancy, they are very roomy, very clean, well stocked with utensils and supplies and comfortable. They have kitchens, fireplace, leather loveseat,...More

Awesome! You captured it nicely. Sitting on the private deck of the cabins you can feed deer from your hand or if you choose a lodge room you can sit on the massive deck and watch the world go by. Come again soon!

We stayed here for our 45th wedding anniversary and was not disappointed. Cozy, warm, efficient and effective . Quiet location and beautiful. Off the beaten path but close to shopping and food. Set in amongst tall pines with amenities including sauna.

Hi. Not sure if there are trails nearby, but it would seem so. There is definitely an outdoor smoking area. I believe pets are allowed, but you might check with the lodge itself.
