Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations

This trip includes the historic Emerald Lake Lodge, where guest rooms are clean and comfortable, but simpler than the typical Backroads standard. We’ve chosen this property because of its proximity to our favorite routes and the fantastic setting. Please note that the guest rooms are not equipped with televisions or air-conditioning. Also, while Cathedral Mountain Lodge and the Post Hotel & Spa are Premiere Hotels and offer outstanding service and amenities, please note they are not equipped with air-conditioning. Despite the region's cooler mountain climate, guestrooms can occasionally become warm during peak temperatures.
