    Clean and friendly. Night person was AWESOME. It is right next to the river and the highway but you couldn't hear the highway noise. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was a wee bit small. All in all, I will definately stay again.

    Thank mcsmith2017

    We don't have cabins, Betty. Sounds like it was the Little Creel Lodge, Spruce Lodge or Elk Horn Lodge. I hope this helps.
