    INCREDIBLE experience at the Kinloch Lodge- Backpacker prices for what feels like a luxury resort. Great respite after long days of hiking, and the hot tub is not to be missed! The staff were all wonderful and so welcoming, could not recommend this place enough. The ONLY issue was the road out- a little tough in my toyota corolla rental car, but just had to take it slow and got down the unpaved part ok. Also, definitely stock up on groceries before you come in, the kitchen is great for cooking!

    Quirky, secluded and highly atmospheric. Rooms are quiet and comfortable and extra blankets are provided for the cooler nights. If you go, make sure to arrive in daylight. Arriving after hours is a strange experience as there was nobody to be seen, however, more importantly, the frankly breathtaking surroundings are worth seeing. Definitely worth a trip.
