Clean but needs basic maintenance and repairs
We (a group of 12) spent four nights at Lost Miner's Lodge, which we chose for the location and reasonable rate. We found the accommodations to be very clean, the owner easy to reach, and the fact that it is stocked with every basic essential convenient. Unfortunately, it needs some basic (probably inexpensive) maintenance. At least two of the smoke detectors are inoperable (hanging down from the ceiling missing batteries or completely gone); the light above the stove is burned out; the oven light is burned out; the photo of the dining room shows six chairs, there are only five; the foosball table has missing handles and broken brackets; the gaming system doesn't work properly; the outdoor grill valves don't work properly (they need cleaning) so the temperature is too low for proper cooking and it smokes excessively; cigarette butts and candy wrappers littered the front deck area; the trash area was overflowing when we arrived (with several bags on top of the numerous large garbage containers); and the window covering in the downstairs bunk bed room was missing (we improvised by putting up a sheet). To add insult to injury, comments from the cabin's guest book from others who'd stayed had had similar comments (slipped into otherwise glowing reviews) about the things like the foosball table and game system being broken from up to two years before our stay. In addition, the cabin, conveniently located near several attractions and the town, is a mere tenth of mile as the crow flies from and higher in elevation than Nevada Gulch Road, so with the windows open on the east side of the cabin, you can hear every vehicle drive by. Although the beds do accommodate 16, the actual setup would have been nice to know ahead of time. There are two rooms with two single top bunks, one single bottom bunk, and one double bottom bunk; one completely open "playroom" with a day bed that sleeps one and a pullout bed (connected together) below that sleeps a second person; and two rooms with double beds. Although I must repeat that the rate was reasonable, the cabin was extremely clean and we enjoyed our stay, we probably wouldn't stay again nor would we recommend it to a friend.
