Beautiful, central location

This lodge is located in an area that has been likened to a piece of paradise. The area itself is quite central but despite being so close to a major city, the direct area around the lodge is quiet and seemingly removed from the hustle and bustle of the touristy areas. The area is also known as an outdoor paradise where visitors report enjoying a wide variety of activities. Guests claim one the best things about the location is the spectacular views of lakes and mountains that can be enjoyed from many areas around the lodge, including the rooms.
