At least the blankets were warm, so that kind of made up for the lack of having a temperature control in the room
When my buddies and I were on a road trip going across the nation, we decided to make a stop at this lodge. It was something like an old tavern the way it was set up. There was even a roaring fireplace and we immediately went to warm up next to it. We were able to get a room with 3 beds and it was fairly comfortable for the most part. The bad news is that there was no individual temperature control. When I talked to one of the workers there about not having a thermostat in our room, he explained that there was only a single thermostat for the entire place. I guess this was why so many people enjoyed hanging out around the fireplace while eating their meals. Because it was a little bit nippy in our room, we decided to do the same thing when it was time for dinner. We ordered some really good food. I had a steak dinner while my buddies opted for the chicken dinner. The spices they used were incredible and the mashed potatoes were to die for. When we had our fill with food and drink, we just hung out near the fireplace for awhile. I didn’t want to go back into our freezing room anytime soon and that fireplace felt wonderful. Eventually it was getting late and we all agreed that we had to get some shuteye. So we went back to our room and went to bed right away. At least the blankets were warm, so that kind of made up for the lack of having a temperature control in the room. Even though it was an old lodge, it still was a very enjoyable experience. They served us a hearty breakfast in the morning, and then we checked out and went on our way.
