We absolutely loved The Lodge. We rented it over the Thanksgiving holiday and it was perfect for our multi-generational group. It’s much larger and nicer than it looks in the photos. The main living area was huge and was great for relaxing. There’s great outdoor space, we played horseshoes and croquet while the kids played on the swing. There was the ritual of the morning trip to see the horses as well. The surrounding land was beautiful and we enjoyed just sitting on the little pier over the pond with our coffee. We would definitely stay here again!!!!!
