Inside, visitors are greeted with accommodations outfitted with flat-screen TVs and coffee makers, among other amenities.

In winter, guests can enjoy sleigh rides and ice skating; and in summer, visitors are invited to take advantage of horseback riding and whitewater rafting. When it comes to dining, guests have a wide selection of options ranging from regionally influenced dishes in the main dining room to Swiss- and German-inspired entrees at Walliser Stube. For a particularly memorable meal, previous visitors suggest dining at the hotel's Lakeview Lounge, which affords gorgeous vistas of Victoria Glacier.
