Our PLACE

Blending a variety of wood from our family-owned business, Goodman & Sons Lumber Company, CliAl Lodge is a breathtaking example of fine craftsmanship. What started out as an intended destination for hunters and our family gatherings quickly changed as CliAl Lodge started taking shape. As word got around, the lodge soon attracted the interest of area businesses and organizations seeking a quiet and unique getaway for meetings and retreats. Individuals then started approaching us about using it as a site for weddings and receptions, family reunions, private parties, and other social events.

As our special guest, you are invited to experience this very special getaway. We want you to be comfortable, relaxed, and, of course, we want you to have a wonderful time!

AN UNUSUAL NAME…

When we had to decide on a name for our lodge, it seemed only natural to recognize our parents, Clint and Alida Goodman, founders of our family business, Goodman & Sons Lumber Company. The name “CliAl Lodge” brings to mind the two people who taught us the value of hard work and integrity, and who promoted the philosophy that we continue to practice today, “Treat people as you would want to be treated.”

Need some fresh air? You’re sure to find that the magnificence of the lodge is surpassed only by the natural beauty seen from anywhere on the wraparound spacious porch. With or without binoculars, you’re sure to see a variety of wildlife. Or, without leaving the porch, settle down in a rocking chair or swing and just rest your eyes on the peaceful waters of the Clarks River.

Arrangements downstairs include a king bedroom and a queen bedroom, along with a large private bath. A washer and dryer and a separate mud room off the porch are offered for guest convenience A loft upstairs with a half bath sleeps up to seven people, each with their own twin bed.
