AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Location): This historic lodge is in a state park making it the perfect spot for me to enjoy nature.
Built in 1937, this hacienda-style lodge is set within a 6,000-acre wildlife sanctuary and is a haven for those desiring a nature retreat. There are clearly marked hiking trails and riverboat tours. The gift shop/snack bar area is home to what is purportedly the world's longest marble bar counter, measuring more than 70 feet long. The lobby ceiling is an ornately painted and carefully preserved piece of art by a court painter of Kaiser Wilhelm. Room décor is a bit of mix and match, while guest bathrooms reflect the era of the building's construction. As the main fireplace is frequently used, the lobby permeates the odor of burning wood upon entering.
Smoke free premises. 27 units. 2 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).
