Just visited the Lodge again to attend the thanksgiving dinner & stay for one night. We had a fabulous evening and would highly recommend this lovely event. The music that was laid on added to a great atmosphere & especially a wonderful violinist who was simply incredible. The food which was done in a buffet style was top notch &...
