Came here with a group of five friends, rooms were simple, clean and had everything we needed. Bert made us good food. We didn't eat there all the time, ventured into town quite a bit, but Bert provided us with lots of entertainment, including a spontaneous concert with his

"Cabin is quieter"
"All the accomodations are excellent, the pool is actually a waterfall just down the road, can't get much better than that!"
"Be sure to rent a four wheel drive car for getting to the lodge and for your local adventures."
"Up top in the community area, I'd say the Toucan room is your best bet. Down below in the cabins, I'd opt for the top unit if possible. Bottom cabin can be pretty noisy depending on who is upstairs."
"of the cabins, downstairs is only one room. upstairs is 2 bedrooms. couples are fin downstairs but two couples will prefer upstairs. rooms in lodge are very nice, and for the price a great deal."
