The floor plan is arranged in a way to separate the guestrooms and other guest-only facilities from the more public functions of the building, such as the restaurant, pub, gift shop, and meeting room. This allows visitors who may not be staying at the lodge to use these areas, without encroaching on the privacy of lodge guests. All of the guestrooms are arranged to have access to views of the lake. Those views are also shared by the restaurant, meeting room, and the recreation areas.
The exterior of the building is designed to simulate the craftsman style to evoke a more relaxed, comfortable, and informal feel for guests and visitors. The brick, stone, siding, and roof materials are common to the area and offer low-maintenance and durability to provide a long-lasting, attractive structure.
