My husband and I spent the weekend here with our infant daughter, to celebrate my birthday. We had booked a one bedroom suite at The Pines, somewhat last minute. The day before we were to arrive, I received a call from GVL, wondering if we would like a free upgrade to a stand-alone one bedroom cabin (due to a larger party staying at The Pines). Loved it! We got here in the evening, and it was a bit confusing to find our cabin, but once we found it, we were pleasantly surprised. A fire was laid out in the wood burning fireplace, just waiting for a match. (we had to call the front desk for matches, but they quickly and cheerfully complied). The cabin was just perfect! Wood fireplace, leather furniture, nice little eating area, plenty of storage space, large, clean bathroom with whirlpool tub. Plush clean carpets, not the generic indoor/outdoor stuff at many cabins. Lots of hot water, and it felt like the bathroom floor was heated. Beds were comfortable, property was quiet. The only downsides to the experience were the weak shower head and they didn't give us more coffee for the second day, , but overall, a great experience. We didn't use any of the resort amenities, but did eat breakfast in the lodge both mornings. Great breakfast, and friendly waitstaff. This was our first time at Grand View Lodge, but it certainly won't be our last... A perfect, relaxing weekend! Side note: Black Bear Lodge has great food if you need a decent casual restaurant.
