I stayed in a rustic (no electricity) cabin for a business conference. The grounds where beautiful, and I loved snacking on the blackberries on my walk to and from the main area.
Some quick pros:
The grounds are green and lush and beautiful!
The creek had lots of spots for wading, some up to my chest, and even a few spaces I could drive under.
I had hot water every time I showered
Tommy made the BEST tomatoes soup I have ever had.
Very few mosquitos - I didn't get a single bite!
The grounds are BIG. It was a 12-15 min walk from the main area to my cabin. This wouldn't have been such a big deal if I was just there camping/relaxing, but our schedule was full so it meant I had to pack for my whole day down at the main area at 8am.
Sitting 6-8 hours in the big dome was hard on my body. Backjacks were provided, but pack extra cushioning.
My loft bunk was so high I could just kneel while upright (I'm 5'6) but all I did up there was sleep, and left my clothes "downstairs", so it worked out. The nights were cooler, and I was glad I packed an extra blanket.
Definitely pack lanterns as the cabin was often dim even during the day. Loved having the porch to relax on, and the rushing creek to fall asleep to at night. The lock box for the key made it really convenient for sharing one key among the three of us staying in the cabin and still giving me assurance that my belongings would be safe.
