February 14th-16th, 2020--We absolutely loved our weekend getaway at your lodge. The lodge is only 1 1/2 hours away from home, but it felt like we were hours away. All of the staff members were friendly and greeted you with a smile. Our room was spectacular with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The breakfasts and dinners were to die for! It truly tasted like I was back in my grandmother's kitchen.
January 24th-26th, 2020--The food and service was amazing. Everyone was welcoming and friendly, always going above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay. The girls getaway weekend was well organized and overall very relaxing. My group and I truly enjoyed it and being able to relax for a weekend. I would recommend it to anyone interested.
January 24th-26th, 2020--This weekend far exceeded my mom and I's expectations! The Sunset Lodge was breathtaking, the food was delicious, the staff was accommodating and wonderfully friendly. I can't wait for the next time I can come--I would love for my husband to experience this place!

September 6th-10th--Everyone was exceptionally kind and sweet--they would help us with anything--always able to answer questions too. The meals were way beyond what I thought they would be--my husband and I ate the meal and were stuffed and still ate dessert! The scavenger hunt was going on when we were there--we didn't participate since it was our first time there and we found two just by chance. It was really set up nicely. We hope to bring our family next year if we can get everyone together. Thank you so much for a wonderful time with all of you!!

We are already looking forward to another visit in the not-so-distant future. Oh, and the meals were absolutely delicious.

April 15th-17th, 2019--Our short stay in the Grand view Suite at the Sunset Valley Lodge exceeded our expectations. Location and cleanliness were excellent. We enjoyed visiting with the staff, other guests, and Gary. Melissa was very helpful and friendly. Meals were delicious. From sunrise to sunset, we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The extra-large bathroom with Whirlpool tub and sauna, not to mention the gigantic shower, was unmatched by any B&B we've ever visited. Simply amazing! Loved it all!
