The Woods is a funky, pastoral-themed spot, with rich earthy colors and lots of wood: tree trunks, white cedar, birch, and teak are all used in the design. Rock walls and leather banquettes, booths, and stools complete the scene.

The Bigfoot Lodge has national park signs, fake fireplaces, lots of wood paneling, big wooden booths, and many references to Sasquatch, Smoky the Bear, and Canadian Mounties.

Cedd Moses created an über-masculine look at Seven Grand with the antique wood bar, elk and stag heads on the walls, stuffed birds, plaid, and a hunter mannequin with a gun.

Like a mountain lodge but actually located in the valley, the Sportsmen’s Lodge has 10 event and meeting rooms, three outdoor terraces, lush gardens, and a pond. The main lobby has a two-story stone fireplace and spiral staircase.

The kitschy-cool Chalet feels like a 1970s lodge with amber glowing lanterns, a fireplace, big circular booths with throw pillows, and cheesy landscape paintings on the walls.
