I decided on A Better Life Cabins because I wanted a good old-fashioned mountain cabin experience....right down to the owners....and it was exactly that. Rick (one of the owners) was in the general store (which has EVERYTHING one would need) with a smile and a helping hand when I told him I needed to buy a camera. The cabin was tiny and cozy, but look where you are....how much time do you want to spend in your cabin??? The heat worked GREAT, the water was good and hot, the place was clean and neat as a pin, and the small fridge was a blessing. I even got to watch a little tv as I drifted off to sleep.
I slept really well, I woke up to the beautiful crisp air, and Rick and Cassie (the friendly mountain pooch) greeted me in the morning,and stopped to chat.
I will return....in the summer AND the winter, when they have only three cabins open.
If you want five-star, then you probably aren't mountain cabin material. If you want to be right in the middle of strip mall heaven, then keep going into Conway. But if you want to go to the mountains to feel the mountains, and if you crave the good old-fashioned mountain cabin experience, then PLEASE give this place a try.
I smiled all the way home. Thanks, Rick & Lynn. :)
