Should have read the reviews

The place was lovely on most accounts and the description was accurate (except in one of the photos there is a TV, but we did not see one there). The view of the park from the bedroom is beautiful, the grounds are nice, the decor is lovely. The place was very clean, stocked with towels and soap and some dishes, and the staff was really excellent. Food at the bistro was delicious and the huckleberry margharitas were perfect.
However, I would also like to note the train going by many times during the night, the helicopter rides starting at 8am and the traffic on the highway.
In addition, we would have liked to have been told that there are in fact other events that happen apart from the bistro being open on the weekends. I would not recommend planning to hang out there during the day unless you ask the manager if anything else is going on.
I would recomend this place to a friend, but NOT for a romantic getaway (especially a honeymoon), as the bedroom window overlooks the patio and there is a potential for weddings to occur in this space without advance notice.
There are plenty of activities nearby- whitewater rafting, canoeing, fishing, shopping, helicopter rides (strongly recommend!!), and of course hiking. The park is really easy to get to and the whole area is beautiful.
I do want to stress though, that Trudi and Ron and the restaurant staff really are friendly and accomodating, but again if you want to know what is going to happen during your stay, you need to ask.
