We recently stayed in the Woodsman cabin and I must say it was both uncomforable and tiny. It is a lovely location but do request one of the larger cabins if you plan to go as a couple.This particular cabin has a queen size bed shoved up against the wall in the corner of the bedroom so the bed is only accessible on one side. It would be fine for one person but if you are a couple, the person on the inside has no way to get out of bed without disturbing the other person. If you like a HARD BED, then this would work for you. The bed is barely one step up from sleeping on a wood floor! There is a futon in the living room with a very hard cushion/mattress. It is the only seating option other than four wood dining chairs. There really is no decent lighting for reading in the cabin if you like to snuggle up with a good book. There are lovely bright ceiling lights but I don't like reading with overhead lighting. There are two tiny side lamps in the cabin, one in the bedroom and one in the living room. These tiny lamps (maybe 10" tall) had very low wattage bulbs, unsuitable for reading. So, if you like to read, bring your own itty-bitty book light or something similar. On the UP SIDE, the cabin has a wonderfully cozy gas fireplace that heats the entire cabin quickly and provides nice ambiance. There are all the basics in the kitchenette, although the pots are old or cheap or both. One non-stick sauce pot had been both burned and heavily used so the non-stick coating was peeling. There is a little flatscreen TV on the kitchen counter in the living space. It has a built-in DVD player but the manager did not know this as she sent told us to feel free to pick out some VCR tapes to take down to the cabin when we checked in. There was no VCR player so we were out of luck. The women who run this place are very kind and pleasant. The place was clean. I would recommend staying here but do choose your cabin wisely.
