Why so darn good? "The location at 9,000 + ft. on the Coronado Trail in the White Mountains. The lodge overlooks a meadow where animals come to graze in the summer. On a snowy day in the winter, you'll see beginning cross-country skiers practicing newly-learned skills."
Location: "In the White Mountains of Arizona. Not another thing around for miles but nature."
Rooms: "Lodge rooms are comfortable but homey. Cabins are basic."
Food: "Homestyle, basic food with good desserts. Friendly service. "
Vibe: "Laid back, outdoorsy."
Keep in Mind: "Restaurant is open only on the weekends in the winter. Come for the scenery, isolation and peacefulness."
