This charming small lodge offers convenience to one of the best entrances to the park, clean rooms, excellent food, and a friendly, helpful staff.
It is, however, difficult to find because it is not on the main road through the park, but on the opposite side. The only sign for the hotel is fifty yards from the entrance after driving some 5-6 kilometers down a windy park road. We had to stop twice to ask directions and then call the lodge for specfics. Once we got there we were very pleased, but we almost abandoned the hunt and forfeited our downpayment. The only people who arrived without problems had navigation systems in their cars.
The Expedia site noted that we would pay for our stay once we arrived. We were not informed that the Lodge did not take credit cards. The nearest ATM was perhaps a dozen miles away. We were lucky that we had enough cash with us to cover the cost of the lodge, the meals, and the wine, but it nearly wiped out the cash supply we were saving for other needs.
