Pros: Spotless rooms, scenic setting, restaurant Cons: Airstream trailer several miles from property on an isolated dirt track. Our sports car club booked several rooms at the Depot Lodge. By the time we made our reservations, the only option left was the Airstream trailer. It sounded idyllic; so we took it. Not a good decision for a sports car close... More

I grew up about 45 minutes away from Paint Bank, and got married on my cousin's farm about 15 miles away. Until needing a place for wedding guests to stay, I wasn't aware of the awesomeness of The Depot Lodge. My husband and I spent two nights (our "mini-moon") in their glamping tent following the wedding. Other friends stayed in... More

Some of our friends got married nearby this past weekend and suggested we stay at The Depot Lodge in Paint Bank. I was admittedly skeptical at first, but it was truly amazing. After checking in at The General Store, we were escorted up to our cabin, Fox Hill Camp. The cabin was gorgeous. Secluded with a view, front and back... More

We have stayed at The Depot Lodge twice now. The first time, we stayed in the caboose, the second in the master bedroom suite. We loved it both times and are already planning to return in November of this year! The Caboose sits by the creek and we enjoyed sitting on the bench outside star gazing at night. Everything you...

We stayed with Depot Lodge at Crumps Camp. The restored Airstream was everything we expected and more . It's a very peaceful and serene setting . While packing up the morning of departure, I stepped in the road and a black bear was 50 yards down from me . The highlight of our trip . I would definitely recommend this... More

With my family coming from these parts, my SO and I thought it would be a good place to visit. We were not disappointed! The room we rented was cozy and clean, the common room was inviting with coffee and fresh-baked pastries each morning, and the grounds were neatly manicured and landscaped! It's within walking distance of the general store,... More
