I've ate in a restaurant or two back in 85, the 1985 food was good in 1985. If they was serving 1985 food in 2011 I would question my sanity for eating it.Really guys? I never stayed there, but the restaurant looked straight out of 1985...nothing wrong with that, but doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement.
Basically they are going to build a shell approx 6 feet outside of the present building, gut the inside and start over. An elevator will be installed to make it ADA accessible. The present building is wood frame and the new exterior will be steel framed. The lodge has had both water leaks and condensation problem for some time with accompanying mold and mildew. I will miss the large fireplace that will be deleted.
