We stayed for three nights in one of the cabins of this beautifully located lodge. Prices for staying at the Lodge are high and to be honest, you mostly pay for the unforgettable location. That lake is really is a gem.
You can’t park nearby the hotel, so you’ll have to leave your car on the parking lot and take the shuttle bus. The bus drivers are very friendly and the service is available 24/7. We never had to wait longer than 10 minutes for a shuttle, but I have to agree that it is a bit of a hassle.
Our cabin was nice, with a comfortable bathroom with lovely bathing products. There was also a fire place and wood available in the cabin, which we didn’t use, since it was quite warm during our stay. The bed could be better though, from such an expensive hotel I expect superb sleeping accommodations.
There was also some noice in the room from (we think) the heating system, a bit annoying, especially when you are looking forward to a quiet place to sleep.
I did love the breakfast though. Two times we ordered from the menu. Both times we had an excellent breakfast, although we had to wait longer than expected. For our last breakfast we tried the buffet, which was good, but again, it took too much time before the pancakes and the scrambled eggs were replenished.
We also had lunch in one of the restaurants. Really great food, but again, pricy. Be warned, the bar closes at 23u, so late night drinks are out of the question, which is a real shame, because you can’t go anywhere else for drinks without taking the shuttle.
We especially loved the hot tub and sauna accommodations. Very clean. Beautiful hot tub, perfect temperature. A great way to relax after a long day hiking.
O yeah, there is only wifi in the reception area.
