Comfortable place to stay with very friendly service. The tv not working was the only issue we had. Great family style dinner and excellent blueberry muffins at breakfast.

Overall ok to stay for a night or two
It was just about ok for one night stay. We booked a Mountain View room and that was changed to a small cabin after our arrival. I guess they are running with less capacity staffing as it is not the peak tourist season. Given the area lodge is ok to stay. No wifi was available during our stay. We carried food from outside as the adjacent restaurant was closing by 7pm.

We were there at end of season when things were shutting down. Our host made sure we got some dinner. We enjoyed the local bar and many patrons and host were very friendly. There was even a local dog that hangs around which was a sweet bonus!! Clean room, quiet, convenient location for our traveling purposes.

It was interesting to stay in a roadhouse that had been built in 1904. It is for sale and I hope someone who appreciates the history of the roadhouse and the area will purchase it. Dinner was a bit on the simple side, but tasty and served in Trappers Den. Breakfast in the restaurant was generous with COVID precautions taken. Choices included hard boiled eggs, muffins, toast, jam, beverages, yogurt, juice, coffee, milk, granola bars (?)

This place was amazing. A rustic lodge in the middle of the woods with a beautiful backdrop. I loved this place. The shared bathroom was no problem and everything was clean.
