We stayed in cabin #3 for four nights.
As others have said, the location is perfect. A very close drive to town and yet far enough away to feel like you're in the middle of nature. On two nights when we returned to the cabin after being out all day, there were deer playing around it.
The cabin was very well equipped and very comfortable. Cooking/kitchen equipment included: coffee maker, kettle, small fridge (which was more than enough for our needs), a counter-top convection oven (we used it to both bake and broil) and a hotplate (or maybe two?). Also included were plates, coffee cups, wine glasses, utensils, knives, pots, etc. Dish detergent was also provided. Pretty much everything we needed to have dinner in when we didn't feel like going out. There was also a full-size BBQ on our deck which we used on several nights. We ran out of gas one night and Dan replaced it with a full take immediately.
Donna did a great job of suggesting things to see when we first arrived (including attractions like the Wolf Talk which aren't officially advertised and which were the most scenic local hikes) and we followed a number of her suggestions. She also was extremely helpful in telling us the best way to get our clothes laundered (we'd just come off a 6 day kayak trip and had a lot of dirty stuff), pointing out good restaurants and mapping out key places like the grocery store.
Others have described the cabins so I won't go into too much detail. But I will say that the bed was extremely comfortable and the rest of the furnishings provided everything we needed to have a very restful and comfortable stay. The bathroom had several very beautiful touches (loved the stone bowl sink and modern black tap). In addition to the bed, Cabin #3 had two sofa/lounge chairs with foot rests, a small dining/kitchen table and a chest of drawers. Just what we were looking for.
Great place and great owners! We would stay here again without any hesitation.
