The final note to make here, is that I passed the Stone Cottages each day, and they looked quite nice. Even though I plan to mostly camp in at tent at BIBE, if I ever stayed in the lodge again, I would try to get one of these rooms. This will probably be the case if can't convince my wife to sleep outdoors in our tent. -Rik
Here's a question: Which lodge rooms are the Rio Grande, versus Casa Grande and Emory Peak? We've got a Rio Grande motel room.

We've got a Rio Grande motel room.The Rio Grande rooms are the older units that are in the two buildings that are closest to the Main/restaurant building. I prefer them for several reasons. Nobody is banging around upstairs while you are trying to sleep, and there are no stairs to climb when hauling stuff up to the room. There is a built in counter which is higher than usual, sort of like a work bench with a shelf below. I like that feature a lot as it's perfect for in room meal prep or just working on gear. The wife acceptance factor is usually less than for the Casa Grande rooms. Painted cinder block isn't as "nice" or some such. There also is no balcony only a chair or two outside your front door, not private. You'll either be facing Casa Grande (much quieter) or the big parking lot (window view). Unloading and loading is a little easier from the parking lot on Casa Grande side even if your room is on the other side.Stay healthy and have a great trip!
