3/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities

The cleaning of the cabin was less than steller; while I understand we are in the woods we didnt expect to find mouse dropping in the tub and bedding. Also when I sat on the floor I ended up covered in dog hair (we did not bring our dog). The breakfast at the bistro was good but not kid friendly and not much variation. There were no realistic options at the bistro for young kids. The hot tub was so extremely chlorinated that it triggered an asthma attack before we even attempted to get in rendering it completely useless and there are multiple sketchy looking outlets within the cabin. The cabin is cute and nicely decorated, the setting is beautiful and serene. The s'more set up at the bistro is fantastic and very engaging for the kids.

Beautiful property with a top notch restaurant. We also loved how dog friendly everyone was. 10 minute drive to the national park and biking distance to other activities.

We arrived after 9p. The staff and general manager went over and above anything we would have asked. They treated us like royalty. Took care of all our needs and stayed until everything was finished. I would recommend highly. We will be back soon.
