Wish they served breakfast but did well with instant oatmeal and coffee in my room. As a solo female, I felt safe and enjoyed a walk on the lake at sunset.

Nice facility and location
It was a very nice stay. Conveniently located. Clean facilities. Highlight was seeing female elk visitors who were enjoying the green grass and then napping in the shade.

10/10 Exceptional

They welcomed us very nicely and even helped us with the information that we could not get from anyone regarding the entrance to Bear Lake in the National park of the American Rockies. Since we arrived late and didn't have time to buy water, they provided us with water even though we didn't ask to we and asked if there was a store in the area where we could buy water. The location is excellent for entering the paek
