The room was spacious, double sinks in the bathroom, a shower and a bathtub, a gas fireplace (which was wonderful on a cold, rainy afternoon) and a very nice breakfast in the morning. There are nice colors throughout and the entire lodge is well maintained.

We used the hot tub one afternoon but not the pool. We did note that the pool area was partly shaded. We were only on the patio that one time so can't really comment on how much sun it might get over the course of the day.

There are shaded areas around the pool, but the pool does get good sun. Can’t answer other question.
