If you are looking for a 5 stars resort with all the amenities, this is not for you. But if you are looking for something authentic, relaxing where you can enjoy a beautiful pond full of wildlife for almost yourself, then you found the right place.
Dana and Christine are the most welcoming hosts I ever had. They make you feel at home.
Regarding the cabins, no electricity, you pump your water, use gas lights for lightning. Canoes, kayaks, mountain bikes are on self service which is really nice to discover the area.
The first convenience store is 15 miles of dust roads away, so don't forget your provisions.
