We just stayed for the weekend and the owners were cool and helpful. For me, it's the perfect weekend away - no frills cabins right off the highway, quiet, with a place to build a fire in back. They also have free wireless internet, dvd players in the rooms and a small but smart collection of dvds to borrow, coffee and muffins, fruit, etc. in the morning. We stayed with friends who had a small baby. I would definitely go back.
We like to take our small dog on vacation, and this place is great for travelers with dogs. It is perfectly clean - a rarity in places that take dogs. I hope dog owners are respectful about keeping this place as nice as it currently is.
We stayed in cottage 3. Even though it shares a wall with another room, we liked it. It has a nice gas fireplace and a refrigerator and kitchen.
It is important to be aware that this place is nothing fancy - just clean and priced right, which is perfect in my book.
