I was a little leary to take this tour. I was afraid it would be a stuffy don't touch anything, don't take pictures kind of place. I was delighted to be welcomed by down to earth friendly people. Jerry Burns gave us our tour and he was extremely knowledgeable and amusing. When I asked if I could take pictures he said absolutely. The building is beautifully kept. The furnishings are gorgeous. It was a great experience.
Had a tour, very beautiful. Would like to attend lodge one time up there
