We had 4 adults and 4 children under 5 staying at Gowler Lodge for 2 nights for the Carbondale Eclipse event. The descriptions are accurate. The place was clean, the property was amazing, and Elizabeth was very responsive. Highly recommended!

Hello Hello. I'm Elizabeth and am managing this fresh airbnb that's in my dad's hood; he's rehabbed at least 23 houses in Enos Park! This one is the first Airbnb, however(my idea). I'm an ESL teacher by trade, and yoga teacher/singer lady on the side.
