We had read about the Lodge and needed lunch traveling home to visit family. We were very pleased at the menu here - lots of interesting choices. My husband got a meatloaf sandwich, wrapped in bacon with an excellent barbecue sauce. He loved it! I got the blended burger - mushrooms and beef. It had local goat cheese, roasted tomatoes, onion and fennel marmalade and a barbecue sauce. It was the most flavorful burger that I've had in a long time. This recipe has been entered in the James Beard blended burger competition, and it should win. It is amazing. Side salad was also really tasty with a house made cucumber ranch dressing. Too full for dessert, but there were some nice options. Dining room is comfortable and elegant and our server was attentive and cheerful. We had a great lunch and enjoyed the drive to the Lodge. We would love to come back to stay in a yurt!

Wow... they have nailed it! Beautiful facilities, incredible staff and delightful owners. Subtle touches throughout. This is not a fussy place, and the quaint and rustic appeal made for a welcoming and relaxing weekend. The food was out of this world... One word. MEATLOAF!

We stayed in a cabin and enjoyed a great dinner at the lodge. It is a great place to go when you want to get unplugged. Delicious muffins and juice at our cabin door for breakfast. Lots of thoughtful touches such as a flashlight on the cabin key ring.

We rented a yurt to celebrate our 19th anniversary. The yurt did not disappoint...we loved the design, the wood stove, the comfortable chairs and couch, and the king sized bed. We enjoyed hearing the rain fall on the canvas and the wind blow in the trees. We liked walking through the woods on trails that were seconds away from our front door.

We had dinner in the lodge both nights. The first night everything went smoothly. Good wine, good service and the food was delicious. Only complaint is server didn’t seem to have even a basic knowledge of the beers on tap other than their names.

The second night at dinner was a totally different experience. Our server seemed to be not properly trained. I ordered the draft cider I had heard about the previous night. After several minutes he came back and asked if I wanted the cider hot or cold. Huh? I said I was expecting a draft cider which of course would be cold and he said no, it comes out of a jug. I gave up and ordered wine. On the way out we looked at the bar and indeed saw a cranberry cider on tap that I would’ve enjoyed. Once we ordered the wine and appetizer we got the wine but waited and waited and waited for our appetizer. It took 45 minutes for that even as we watched diners who came in after us get their appetizers. So it really just wasn’t a pleasant experience especially for what we paid.

Overall we would love to come back and probably will. The relaxing atmosphere and convenience of the restaurant were just what we wanted. But for the price I would think a couple small changes would go a long way. First, with the muffins...pats of butter or a mini jar of jam should be standard at a place with this price point. Second, the basket should include additional coffee creamers. We were fighting each other for the last creamers. A couple sets of silverware in the sink area would be nice. And finally, additional staff training at the restaurant. For such a pricey place and good food the servers should be knowledgeable about what they are serving. They were friendly but just didn’t seem to have the info they needed.

Just had a wonderful weekend in one of the luxurious cabins at savage river. The cabins are comfortable with a soft bed and roomy bathroom. They are one bedroom lofts with a pullout sofa for another couple. There isn’t a kitchenette but there is a separate sink and counter for coffee and hot chocolate. The bathroom is spacious. The porches are wide and perfect for watching time pass. The best part is the cabins are dog friendly. Apparently the yurts are not. But there are multiple small amenities and details they do to cater to your dog. A muffin and orange juice is delivered to your door in the morning and includes dog biscuits.
Will definitely be back. And definitely bring the dogs again.
If it’s important to you - there are no TVs and Internet is spotty but it just contributes to actually stopping and enjoying being with others and nature.
