The present place is just a little farther back from the highway than the old lodge. Part of it was built before the old lodge burned down.

After Terry (Promach I) told me about how pleased he was with his stay there I stopped in one evening and had a pleasant chat with the owners. Once the snow has melted off and grass is showing again I'll stop in again and take a number of photos to post, showing the rooms, the exterior, etc.
