I accidentally booked for a 1-night stay for a day earlier than intended. When I called the lodge, they were extremely accommodating despite being fully booked. The 1-king & 1-queen bed cabin we stayed at was warm, clean and spacious for the four of us. We were well taken care of! Couple restaurants at walking distance from the lodge for dinner so you don't have to drive through the ice/snow at night

The staff was extremely welcoming and accommodating. We had a late arrival and they were there to let us in. Our heater didn’t work the first night, but they immediately came to fix it the next day with an extra blanket and hot cocoa. We ended up getting stuck in kirkwood for the night and requested a late check out when we could leave the mountain. The staff was relieved when we made it back and they allowed us to stay an extra night free of charge. This staff cares about your safety and well being. The room itself was perfect- I love the simplicity and feeling of being in a private cabin. Wonderful!

WORST experience of my life! My room keys were left on a table in an unlocked lobby. ANYONE could have taken them or been in my rooms before we got there. My room keys became un-programmed almost hourly and hd to get redone. When you call to get help, no one answers and when they do, it’s the owners who are not there!!!! They tell you to go to the lobby and REKEY YOUR KEYS YOURSELF!!!! Giving away their key device password, meaning anyone can get into any room at any time! When we got back from a wedding down the road, our room keys didn’t work, again, and when we called the owners, they told us someone was there and there was NO ONE. It was snowing and there was no one to help and the owners called us a liar. When thy told us to knock on room xxx the guy was screaming and yelling at us, didn’t actually do anything and slammed his door. The owner texted me, personally, saying they would refund my room. Instead, THEY CHARGED ME AGAIN. When asked to get the room comped as I was told, the owner said “no” and they did everything right. NEVER stay here!!! EVER!!! It’s not safe, you are venerable to anyone walking by getting into your room or people who know this place is rampant for theft. Staying ANYWHERE else would have been better.

The shower was tiny, not big enough for a full size adult. Heater was falling off the wall. No attendant on site, except for construction crew member.

We stayed in the king with a full kitchen, separated from the bedroom by beautiful french doors and offered a toaster oven, microwave, mini fridge, seating, sink,etc. The bedroom had a very comfy bed, 2 built in tables, dresser with a TV w/ streaming capabilities - we had to use our own accounts but that wasn't a problem. The bathroom was ok with a walk in shower no fan though, the bedroom had a ceiling fan, and the whole place was rather large. However, the walls were paper thin and we could hear our neighbors ok 1 side having a very heated argument all night long slamming doors and breaking things, screaming at each other nonstop. Now, at first the room looked pretty clean but it became clear the room had never been dusted with cobwebs everywhere including the bed, lamps, headboard, windows, everywhere and several spiders inside the room and kitchen and bathroom. The advertised breakfast was really a Keurig. You have to call the number posted on the office door in order to get staff to come down and check you in or if you need them at all throughout your stay. And staff was the worst ever: rude, unhelpful, loud, and 4 separate times a female staff member attempted to enter our room without even knocking the day before we were supposed to check out. She threw open our door screaming at us about how she had to clean the room and we had to leave right then- she was in PJs& slippers and is the entire reason we didn't extend our stay and won't go back or recommend the property.

Even though you are charged for the room the day before and get a confirmation it doesn’t mean you will be guaranteed a room! Had to wait for someone to show up at the front desk to be told our reservation could not be found. Hotel was sold out, zero cares from the hotel. They refunded my money but should have never been charged to begin with. Do not stay here or if you do make sure to confirm even though you get a confirmation email.

Comfy beds
We stayed at the Emerald Bay Lodge for a friends wedding. The cabin we had, was very large…had a king and queen sized bed, full kitchen and full bath with a jetted tub. We didn’t have time to try out the tub though. The beds were very comfortable. There is currently no place to hang clothes, but have made suggestions to management how to improve the cabin, as it has a lot of potential to be great! Being in the woods, there are definitely some noises you hear in the middle of the night…is it a critter or a ghost, who knows! Would definitely stay here again…and maybe bring my ouija board! Lol
