Got a great deal and decided to go to Hope Lake in August. Extremely impressed with the lodge, reminds me of the "Lodge" at Vail. Rooms are clean and well appointed, the water park is spectacular for smaller kids. Salt water pools so no stinging eyes plus toasty warm. Probably good for up to tweens. There is an arcade and...

We just came back from this hotel and we loved it. We are sad to have to come back home. We had such a great time there.
