This was an interesting property on the National Historic Record. The display of old artifacts was nice to see. While the dinner menu was limited (for very good reasons), the meal was delicious. Our only concern was the lack of a lock/key for our room.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had an enjoyable meal. The lodge has operated for decades without a lock/key system but we have actually just purchased this summer some new door lock systems that will blend with the time period of the lodge. We have experienced some personal family emergencies this summer but will get back to projects here in the next couple of weeks.
