The room was equally as cozy. The custom-made Shaker furniture goes perfectly with the environment. Even the plaid bedspread fit in with the whole "lodge" feel. There were the standard amenities of a hotel like a Marriott, with a coffeemaker and minibar. There wasn’t anything fancy with the room, and it wasn’t large but wasn’t small.
The hotel has two restaurants, but being that I was there in December, only one of them was open. I had a delicious mozzarella, tomato, and asparagus appetizer. It was served with wonderful warm rolls. The prices were very reasonable. I ventured to the pool, where I saw an outdoor/indoor pool and small, sparse gym. The lodge does have a full-service spa offering a range of services that seemed a bit pricey. There is even a spa representative in the lobby ready to book your services.
The lodge has a gift shop and offers numerous activities, like golf, fishing, hiking, etc. You could probably do anything there. Because of the holiday, the park next door had an enormous display of lights. You could drive through the park with your children to see everything. Also, because it was December, the lodge was pretty quiet. That was fine by me. I did find that the price on their website was double their actual room price. I didn’t mention it at check-in, but they offered me their lower price right away.
This would definitely be a place to check out in warmer weather just to have a few days of outdoor fun. But the peacefulness of the winter was wonderful just the same.
