The Lodge Of Four Seasons
Unique Qualities of the Lodge
WE did not stay here this time, and it has been quite a while. The purpose is to provide a perspective of what is was like going back in time to the 1960's, since little has changed since then.
Unique Quality: The lobby, the rooms and the outside are just the same as back then, or close to it. The gardens area in the rear by the pool was a recent addition in 1989. Harold Koplar hired a famed Buffy Murai to design a garden for Zen and he did. It has a number of connecting pools, exotic fish and bridges connecting the pathways. There is also many special plants in the area. The pool is cloverleaf shaped to pattern style of the era in 1960's. The view is great though. Rooms are still very old in feature even though they change out the style of Madrid Spain in the 1960's to upgrade into Guadalajara Mexico special in the 1980's It is still there like that. The carving of wood is of cypress with a lot of burlwood narls. This was a populuar thing to carve fo Chinese and Koplar purchased a piece that is magnificent. It is a show piece.

It actually has been a while since I stayed here, but recall the times when it was in vogue. In the last few years I visited the hotel and kept up with the activity to guage the competition of the area. Not much in improvements have changed in the last 20 years. That is good or bad? The feeling is like going back in time, with big dark wooden doors and the theme then and now is Spanish motif, maybe? The centerpiece in the lobby has a copper vent and was its monicker in the old days. The flame is now out and actually there is no flame or fire.
HK's restaurant is still like it also was years back, but the food is still good, and prices in middle range of $18-30 for dinners.
Unique Quality: It has a wonderful Japanese garden with Zen. It overlooks the pool area down below. Beyond that is a nice view of the lake. Rooms in the hotel itself are a bit cheaper than the "cottages" surrounding the hotel. Nothing, or little has changed since construction in 1964.
Harold Koplar from ST. Louis made a lot of money and bought around 3,500 acres of ground when it was cheap. They have been developing and selling homesites and condos since. His daughter and SIL now operate the place, and it gives them a living. The original theme was redneck and country western and cowboys. They even had a bull walk around the grounds and into the lobby at times. The furniture and huge wood doors came from Madrid and much is still there, and not cleaned often. Rooms are furnished from custom work in Guadalajara, Mexico.
They have 20,000SF meeting hall next to the motel.
Directions: From Bus 54, follow Route HH for about 3 miles. It is on the left side across from the golf courses clubhouse.
