Rooms & Suites

From a unique glamping experience for the adventurous to our cozy cabins, the Savage River Lodge provides an unparalleled experience. Our eight yurts provide an open and light-filled experience for maximum two adults along a path in the pines. At 30-feet in diameter the yurt provides the ultimate glamping experience; still a tent-like structure with canvas walls, but with a luxurious interior, they're the perfect escape for couples looking to experience a relaxing and unique experience. The sustainable yurts are usable all year round with gas-log fireplaces and radiant floor heat, and have fully plumbed bathrooms. Aside from the bathroom, the rest of the yurt is open, with a central skylight, king-sized bed, breakfast nook and sleek leather furniture. Each yurt also has a deck with rocking chairs. This is still a tent experience, albeit a luxurious one, and guests staying in yurts will have to walk a short distance to reach their yurt. For the traditionalists, our 18 rustic luxury cabins with their sink-into furniture, gas-log fireplaces and loft bedroom are an escape from the ordinary. Each has a loft-style queen or king-sized bedroom, private bath with extra-large soaking tub, breakfast nook with gas-log fireplace, sitting area and shaded front porch. The cabins provide a cozy and romantic retreat, ideal for two people, but holding up to four adults with a queen sleeper sofa in the living area. There are three lodging types available: Standard, Forest or Premier cabins. The differences lie in the views, bed size, some amenities, and privacy they provide. No matter where you stay ─ cabin or yurt ─ in the morning, you'll open your front door to find your own basket of fresh juice and muffins to help start your day. Each room is also equipped with coffee and tea. Please note only some rooms offer air-conditioning and bathrobes.
