"The far lodges are wonderful in the forest but its a steep walk!"
"We stayed in the Cerino Cottage (more like a house)."
"Views from the luxury tents were amazing, but definitely not accessible for folks with mobility issues."
"Woodii Cabin best view with private pool"
"The rooms are up a steep hill, not for the unfit."
