Fodor's Review

This lodge, across the highway from the lake, centers around a 19th-century building that has served as a store, a saloon, a tollbooth, and a boardinghouse. Surrounding the rustic lodge are modest, weathered-wood cottages tucked beneath towering cottonwoods on a grassy hillside. The simple, country-cute rooms have cozy furnishings that—thank heaven—manage not to be tacky. The nine-table Hammond Station Restaurant is quite pleasant.
