In the 1920's, before this large building was finished, the guests ate at tables set up in a tent cabin. Today, the Dining Room is no longer used for serving meals, except for special events. Now it is used as a quiet sitting room for the guests staying at the lodge to read and enjoy the view of Mt. Elwell, visible from the many windows and from the large deck. On Sundays, during June, July and August, a potluck dinner is held here to allow all the guests to get to know each other.
