Description: Experience a beautiful, intimate lodge in a mountainous setting, during its quiet off season, with walking and hiking right outside your door. Relax in the living room-like lobby to chat with new friends. Enjoy a cold beer, glass of wine or a mixed drink from the Snug Bar, almost like a bar in your home, to relax and recount stories of the days activities. The Lodge itself is an architectural joy and the front entry is always beautifully landscaped with pretty, cheery flowers. Kandahar is simply a marvelous, relaxing atmosphere from where to begin this program.
