We stayed 4 nights in Chalet #12. It was a nice cottage, VERY quite and peaceful. It had some old building charms. The floors were a bit uneven in places and the windows were a bit drafty. The heat worked amazingly well and kept out the cold. The porch extended to three sides of the cabin and there were some great mountain views through the trees (if you go in the summer you may have lots of leaves in the way). The stairs to the loft were extremely steep almost like climbing a ladder. Our Kitchen was very well stocked and even had a wine bottle opener (some reviewers mentioned this a a problem in the past). The firewood provided was a bit green but we were able to get it going. If you are willing to move lots of logs and use the ones on the bottom of the stack they are much more aged and dry and work very well. Bring a few news papers and a lighter for the fire they do not provide either. They do charge an annoying fee each day for cable $1.50 a day even if you do not turn on the TV. Overall it was a great visit, I would highly recommend it for those looking for a quiet mountain retreat. Do not expect the "Ritz-Carlton" these are old cabins. I would guess they were build it the '50's or 60's.
