Great mountain type setting. Weak wi-fi in room. Bathroom needed some maintenance attention. Tub needed caulking and there was water damage. Looked like mildew or mold. Staff was responsive to our questions

The rooms need updating. They were sufficient, but old.

Despite the room being a little small, otherwise, we loved it here. Quiet, clean, and comfortable; everyone was friendly. And, I thought the restaurant was outstanding!

The Powder House Lodge is very convenient to everything in the area. We used it as our "home base" and spent each day exploring different areas around Keystone. The staff at Powder House is second to none. We were always greeted with a smile and a warm welcome. A special thanks to our waiter, Toby! He was friendly, helpful, personable, and very knowledgeable about the area. It was perfect!
