We booked a last-minute, three night, New Years holiday trip and thought ourselves lucky to find this place available. Once we arrived at Mountain Madness and opened the door to the 'Honeymoon' cabin we realized why it was still available. It was nothing more than a studio, not the one-bedroom cabin we thought we were renting. It was furnished with a old, lumpy king-sized bed and a very uncomfortable futon. There was a rickety dining table and two uncomfortable chairs in the kitchen area. The cabin smelled musty and dank. Their idea of cleanliness is not what we considered clean. There were cobwebs in all the windows, and every corner was layered with grime. The final straw was when I turned back the bed covers (I was afraid of bedbugs) to discover a recent menstrual blood stain on the mattress pad. We drove to the business office, but it was closed with a note on the door giving a number to call. Given the hour, we decided to take care of matter ourselves and stripped the bed and proceeded to find a place to wash the bedding. At least we knew then the bedding was clean. There was not a single comfortable place to sit in the cabin. We spent as little time inside as possible, but the outside wasn't much better. There is a small front deck with a table and two very dirty chairs. By the way, the location of the cabins is right off the highway. While that is quite convenient, it is not exactly the wooded get-away we were expecting. You could here traffic noise inside the cabin. Overall, a very disappointing experience and so overpriced for what you get!
