Located on the shores of Silver Lake, high in the Sierra range, this historic lodge is a destination resort of housekeeping cabins and hotel rooms. Your hosts, Mike and Karen Riddle, welcome you to stay and explore the wonderful hiking, boating, fishing and relaxation that the area provides. All accommodations are built of cedar with knotty pine interiors and include private baths. Our hotel units all have a lake view decks to enjoy the outdoors among the towering pines. The cabins sleep from two to eight persons and all have outdoor decks. The resort includes a general store, art gallery, full service restaurant, and offers boat rentals. The lodge is a summer resort and is open from the first Friday of June through the first week of October each year. The lodge also has a forest chapel complete with a spectacular view of Thunder Mountain for that very special destination wedding.
