The negatives: This is a B&B - when we checked in, we were told that breakfast would be served at 9:00. When we came at 9:00 and asked about breakfast, we were told there was no breakfast and that the person who checked us in had made a mistake. The bed was too soft and I had to sleep on the floor; luckily there were extra blankets in the closet to make a pallet. Sink in the bathroom was ultra-small; when I washed my face a lot of water spilled on the floor. I ended washing my face, brushing my teeth, etc. at the kitchen sink in order to have a decent-sized sink. Although there was a coffee maker in the cabin, and some packets of sugar, creamer and coffee and tea, this was not replaced the next morning (nor was the bed made), so the second morning we could not have any coffee. We met the owner, but got the impression that she was tired of the B&B business. Cabins are cute, but service is going downhill.
The positives: Small, well-designed cabin with small fixtures to fit the space - cute! Friendly staff. Even though far away from a large town, and near the Cascades, there was a modern flat screen TV and the cabin was Wi-Fi-ed.
This place was not comfortable enough to stay again or recommend to others.
