The proprietors were friendly and the location of the lodge was just right for visiting the caverns and the falls. Our stay had lots of positives and a few negatives but the overall experience was enjoyable. We wanted something rustic, nostalgic, and homey, and in that regard it was perfect! Positives: The location was beautiful and convenient. The fire pits and playground area were great. Lots of board game selections in the main office. It felt like stepping back in time a bit, which is what we wanted. It was also very quiet and peaceful in the back were our cabin was located. Negatives: We were told our cabin had a "jacuzzi", which was actually just a plain bathtub in the main living area. The "kitchen" was a mini fridge and microwave and a very small, slightly dirty coffee maker. The room was clean except for the serious cobwebs in two of the corners of the room and the internet was weak, but that was actually fine because we wanted more of a camping feel.
The room accommodations were described to us over the phone when we made our reservation, and after reading some of the other reviews, I think we were just put in a different cabin than what we made reservations for. Evidently there is a cabin with a jacuzzi and a kitchen, but it was definitely not our cabin. We thought about complaining when we first got there, but decided to just roll with it and it ended up being fine. I have not checked to see if we were charged the same as the better cabin or given an appropriate rate, maybe they are the same price? That would be odd. Oh well. Would consider staying there again.
