One of the reasons we decided to spend a night at Mt. Engadine Lodge was the rave reviews that our neighbor gave the lodge after staying there about a year ago. Our neighbor is quite knowledgeable when it comes to travel facilities, so we believed her judgment and review. The secluded location of Mt. Engadine Lodge is truly unparralleled, the view across the meadow to Tent Ridge and the peaks beyond is spectacular. Our room in the lodge was generously sized and well equipted. Our only observation was the bare white walls seemed too sterile. We felt that the walls should have been painted in earth-tones to reflect the surrounding natural environment. The blank wall also seemed out of character, perhaps some of the photos and paintings by local artists should be used to breakup the blankness. Our neighbor raved about the meals she and her daughter experienced while staying there. We found the meals to be good, but not really in the rave category. The afternoon tea was probably the best presentation of food that we had. The selection of meats, cheeses and crackers was very nicely presented and delicious. The evening meal of strip steak and vegetables was good, but not rave-worthy. The vegetables in particular seemed lame, the potatoes were served dry and we had to ask for butter and salt and pepper to add flavor.The steak was very good and cooked to our perfection. Breakfast was again a bit of a let-down, as was the packed lunch.
