Both are great lodges in the same area, the Mtn Pine Ridge. Both are well staffed and managed. BL is on a creek that is dammed for swimming. HVI has a pool and hot tub near the cottages and restaurant.

Both offer the same area trips (Caracol, Mtn Pine Ridge, Barton Creek Cave, etc).

BL is on a small property that is well landscaped and designed. HVI is on 7200 acres of pine and hardwood forest. They have 7 private waterfalls, 90 miles of hiking trails and a stocked lake.

I think the 2 bdrm villas at BL are amongst the nicest in the country. The cottages at HVI have fireplaces.

BL will offer a larger menu selection for lunch and dinner. HVI will only offer a few selections. HVI has 12 cottages and BL about 20 plus.

Both are great and you'll be pleased with either.

Just remember, the pine trees are mostly dead from beetle infestation, so don't expect to see the beautiful, green evergreens in the area that were once so impressive. That said, we stayed one night at Three Sisters on our honeymoon and really enjoyed the area despite the dead trees.
