The furniture could use an update. Slip covers wouldn't stay on recliners. All kitchen chairs legs broken. Microwave didn't heat. But it is a cabin and for the most part quite cozy. The two gentlemen that we spoke to for issues that we had were very friendly. The kids love coming here because there are things to do such as horse shoes on the property to do.

I made a reservation for a two bedroom. And when I got there they gave me a one bedroom. This ruined my families vacation. Then they refused to make it right. I paid extra for this 2 bedroom.

Unfortunately the cabin you were assigned to is in a category that has both one and 2 bedroom cabins that sleep 6 people and are the exact same square footage. They are just spaced differently but priced all the exact same. We are sorry that was not clear to you on the third party website. We are appreciative of your business and sorry it wasn’t a great experience. We’d love to offer you a free night for another time so you can enjoy your time with us.

The small cabin we stayed at was comfortable and accommodating for my boyfriend and I. It had a fireplace, hot tub, and a queen sized bed. I recommend it for a couple or a person who is interested in an affordable getaway from the city.
