My husband took me here this past weekend and we really enjoyed our stay.
From the start the staff were helpful and pleasant, check-in was a breeze (you get a real room key, like back in the day). The rooms don't have TV, or phones, but truly I'm not there to watch TV and if I needed to use my phone I could go to the lodge, sit and relax and utilize the free WIFI.
We had great customer service and our food was delicious. It takes awhile to get your food, but its all homemade and was very good. Full dinner menu in the bar, the crab/artichoke sandwich is really good!
When I read some of the past reviews I was a bit surprised. Did you expect you were going to be staying at a 5 star hotel? This is a lodge and I felt they are keeping it true to the lodge feel with the appropriate décor and atmosphere. The view beats any resort, hotel, or motel with-in the state, you are right on the river!! Open the window and let the river sing you to sleep. The decor reminded my husband of his grandparents home, made us feel comfortable. I will agree the towels were a bit small but you get plenty, so use a few, big deal.
We also enjoyed music in the lounge in the evening. The lounge was very fun the crowd was a wide mix of ages and "styles". Two groups were there for anniversaries, one for a memorial of a friend brother, another group for a birthday. The atmosphere was great with a lot of conversations between the groups. The bartender was very busy and took great care of all of the patrons.
Sunday breakfast was awesome. I had an omelets, probably the best I have ever had! My husband had the trout and the server filleted/boned at our table (she did an excellent job).
We will be back, maybe in the fall to see the color of the trees change and watch the salmon run up the river!!
