Best stay of my trip! Beautiful room and property. The attention to detail really stands out and the creek is beautiful! I rarely stay in the same place twice, but will definitely stay here anytime I return!

The lodge was a hotel type experience. Brand new and clean, with lots of little supplies provided like shampoo, conditioner, body wash, paper plates, utensils, napkins, welcome gift of peanut butter fudge and trail mix! Pizza place right next door open late was an added bonus since not much else around for dining. Heard great things about the cafe on property so was bummed it was closed for the season. Overall, great place to stay, pretty river along property and lots of seating to enjoy it, even if weather is bad, since there is a brand new covered pavilion with a grill. Looks like a great spot for a party!

This was a beautiful property that exceeded expectations! the staff was lovely and very helpful. The cafe was delicious and had great service. The property was gorgeous along a babbling creek and walking distance to 2 other restaurants not on the property. I can't thank the McKinley Creekside cabins enough for the 5 star stay and will be recommending to others in the future!
