We stayed at the Log Cabins in Mt. Charleston. The restautant food was very good. The employees were friendly, helpful and accommodating. The gift shop was sufficient and had some wonderful items. The view was breathtaking. They also have at Christmas time horse drawn sleigh rides for the public. A wonderful way to enjoy the great outdoors and yet have the comfort of indoor pleasure.
My boyfriend and I escape to the lodge as much as possible. Even if we stay just one night we always leave feeling very rejuvinated. It's a perfect place for R and R.
Spent one night here after 4 days on the Vegas strip, figured it'd be a nice way to "wind down" our trip before flying home. Great idea, this place is delightful. Our cabin was nicely appointed with a fireplace, tv/dvd player (no tv reception, but they stock a big selection of dvd's at Redbox prices), huge whirlpool tub, microwave, fridge. Big king bed. There's a nice covered balcony with a swing chair and also chairs and a table to eat out there. Friendly front desk staff. Short walk to a hiking trail if you want (bring real hiking gear, it's not an 'easy' trail). And all at a reasonable price, I think we paid $125 + tax.
We are in cabin #16, which I recommend because it's a "lower" cabin. You'd think it would not be preferable, but the upper cabin's balconies look across at the lower cabin's rooflines. The lower cabins look out across... mountains. :)
I can't comment on the dining room because we stopped at Whole Foods on the way from Vegas and brought dinner with us.
We stayed for one night. We checked in early and then took a long hike up to Mary Jane Falls. We had a cabin all the way down the steps so it was more private than some of the others; be sure to look at the cabin map when choosing a cabin! We enjoyed taking a nice soak in the jacuzzi tub after our tiring hike. We then enjoyed a cocktail and appetizers (since they provide a fridge and microwave in the room) on the deck watching the hummingbirds fly all around us. Then it was off to dinner at the lodge which is a two minute walk. Dinner was delicious and fairly reasonable for the beautiful scenery we enjoyed! The only negative was a strange smell in the cabin, not really bad but just weird like maybe some type of cleaning supplies? We had a great day and evening and can't wait to go back!
We loved this place. We drove in at night so we really didn't see where we were on this mountain. When we awoke the next morning we were amazed at the view we saw. We stayed in cabin 16 "love birds cabin". When we arrived at our room the heater and the fireplace was already on for us. Our room stayed nice and cozy all night. Our room had a spacious jacuzzi tub. The restaurant next to the cabins had great food, service, atmosphere, and views.
We rent a small cottage here when we want to be alone and get away from it all. We bring a few snacks and drinks, but eat most of our meals at the lodge. It's a little bit expensive but worth it. The Winter quiet and Summer cool make this a favorite place for us to stay anytime of year. The office people are friendly and knowledgable. There is a well known hiking trail across the street for seasoned hikers with a killer view at the top. I like to walk the small neighborhood nearby and dream about living in the mountains again. Get away for a few days and come here, you will be glad you did :)
