We went last year in August (wouldn't let me choose that date), and are heading up there again this week! So exicted! Our neighbors were close, and teenagers, but very respectful and understood we had children with us. We had quite a few encounters with mama bear and her cubs, but it was more of a semi-scary first for all of us that we enjoyed because we knew to watch from a distance. The kids still tell the story! Our cabin was clean when we got there, and close to the bathroom/water. The only complaint I would have is the wood didn't light well and it took a long time getting our fire started.
