National Geographic Traveler named Gray Eagle Lodge as one of the Top Ten North American Classic Summer Lodges. We are so honored to be recognized! Here’s what they had to say about us:
Once they find Gray Eagle Lodge off a two-lane road, most guests have little use for their cars. Days here are spent on foot, hiking to alpine lakes in the Sierras (cabins come equipped with day packs) or going for a dip in the swimming hole fed by a 15-foot waterfall. “There are no planned activities,” explains Tracy Morris, who has taken her children here for years, “unless you count the evening marshmallow toastings around the fire pit or the games of flashlight tag planned by kids who have never met before but have become fast friends.”
While there are no planned activities for kids, each day a “gang” of kids get together to play volleyball, take a dip in our beautiful swimming hole, or play pool in the game room. After a day of family reconnecting, the evenings are filled with sticky, roasted marshmellows and an impromptu game of flashlight tag with new friends. Thank you, National Geographic, for the recognition as one of the best lodges the US has to offer. You can book a stay in one of our cabins and join the many families that have been creating memories for generations.
