Reviewed 8 November 2014

Very “friendly and family” atmosphere. The owners are very outgoing and friendly with tonnes of knowledge of the area. Within walking distance to the downtown boardwalk area with shops and restaurants. The room is modest for the price point, but the lodge atmosphere makes up for it. Complimentary breakfast was very good, and the homemade carrot muffins were “seconds worthy”.

Thanks for taking time to review our lodge! We appreciate you staying with us and are glad that you enjoyed your time here. One of the best things about Battle Creek is the central location to the "main strip" in Keystone and the fact that everything is so accessible and walkable. We love being able to share our knowledge of...

The question with this review is where to start because as you can see by my title we have come to consider the owners to be like our family. With that said please look at my previous reviews of Battle Creek lodge so that you can see that I'm not just promoting a friends business. The ladies who operate the...

We travel to the Keystone area several times a year and have stayed in many of the local properties. That was until we found Battle Creek and the people who run it. Now, we will not stay anywhere but with them. The Lodge is small but what is lacks in size it makes up for in service and attention. From...

The lodge and the people are the best. Everything people say about their experiences at the lodge are true. Located at the edge of the town of Keystone so much fun is within walking distance. 3 hour steam train ride. Helicopter ride. Museums. The food prices in town are vary resonable. You will meat people from around the world. The...

We booked this place off of the reviews of trip advisor. We've been to Keystone many times and have never considered staying here. What a wonderful find! It is conveniently located only a few blocks from downtown. The rooms were spotless and the beds very comfortable. There was an awesome fire pit and deck area available for us to use....

So, it's right across from some restaurants. Had no problem parking. The lady working there was very nice and helpful. There are outdoor areas to hang out, on a really nice deck.
