Red Deer Lodge, St Arnaud

 Spacious kitchen and lounge.Good fridge and freezer space. Showers and toilets adequate and clean. Bunkrooms adequate, though one needed window pane replaced - fortunate that we did not need to use it. Would be nice to have more couches in the dining room to accommodate a crowd in the evenings. Very comfortable stay.
