The Red Lantern Lodge was absolutely amazing for a family vacation! The management staff were prompt and informative, check in was incredibly easy. The house and the view are beautiful. It is secluded, but it was a quick drive to two towns and river tubing. I would recommend this house, and we are planning to return next year

I was in the unique position of looking for a property to accommodate a daughter on crutches from surgery. The team was super helpful in finding a place with a main floor shower(seat in the stall)and bedroom. With the addition of a king bed in the loft for my husband and I. All on short notice!
