Fodor's Review

This top-notch lodge is on the outskirts of the village, on a ridge overlooking a lake where you can enjoy sweeping views of the surrounding mountains. Each suite, decorated in a modern Cape-cottage style, has a private terrace leading to the poolside garden. High ceilings, good-quality linen, and original art in each room contribute to the luxe atmosphere. The restaurant, Governor's, is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and serves brasserie cuisine with local

flavors; meals can be enjoyed on the terrace in good weather or by the fireplace in winter. The cottages across the river have two rooms and are great for families. There are nice touches such as DVD players in the family suites, so it's one less thing you'll need to pack. Room rates change daily.
