I was reading the reviews here. Some say the place is fabulous, others that the rooms are tired and dirty. We stayed in the marymere rooms, and they do look like a 1950 hotel. The room did smell a bit musty. But by leaving the window open a crack, we got the lovely fresh

What a fabulous setting. It’s rustic but so lovely. We could have stayed here for several days. Get there is time to enjoy sunset and a cocktail on your porch. The lobby is beautiful and a fire going in the fireplace. Front desk was very helpful on things to do and see in

The accommodation is awful. They are two storey six block in a forest. All the furniture is made from trees, including the bed. I think the idea was to make it “Country”, it doesn’t, it makes it cheap. The staff are not very friendly or helpful. We arrived there at 10 pm in the

Beautiful lake side location with super nice staff. Sadly, the lodge only has rooms with NO private bath. I stayed in a cabin so I could have a private bath, very rustic. Housekeeping was not so good, there was hair on the shower walls and stuff on the floor next to the

Stunning location, even on a cloudy wet day, right on the shore of the lake. We stayed for one night. We had a room on the ground floor of a 2 storey building. The room was tired and dirty, it felt very overdue for a refurb. In particular the bathroom was awful, dark and dingy

I wouldn't recommend you stay here until management has figured out how to keep the rooms clean. For the price it's just not worth it.

Is there TV in the Roosevelt Cabin?
Nope. But you’re not coming here to watch tv, are you?

Depends upon both the toddler and the stamina of the parents carrying the toddler. Firstly, the lodge is fun and has a beautiful view of the lake and the mountains surrounding it. There is a spacious dining room and I would be fairly certain that the restaurant will help out with whatever your child might eat (although I don't recall a specific child menu). Secondly, there are numerous trails spreading out from the main area of different lengths and difficulties. I'm certain the main desk can advise you as to the length and challenge of these. If you would want your child to walk, then obviously you'll take a shorter less difficult path. If you have a child backpack so you can carry him or her, then you can go as far as your strength will take you. There are also boat rentals. Not certain when that season starts, so you should check with the desk. Finally, pick your room rental depending upon whether you want an ensuite bathroom or not. The rooms in the main lodge, I believe, only have shared bathrooms in the hall, which can be difficult with a child, so although the main lodge is most attractive, you might want to select a more family friendly room in one of the outer buildings. That said, those outer buildings are really not far off from the main lodge and the restaurant. Just walk past the large parking lot and you've reached the lodge area.

Hi Jill, Calling them would be the best way to get the correct answer. Getting room reservations was pretty straight forward. Getting the dining room was very frustrating. I was forwarded to voice mail. I called several times and left voice mail message each time asking for a return call. They never called back. About the fourth time I called I got a real person. All fine from there. Good luck.
