I wanted to have a surprise birthday treat for my husband and thought that these luxury cabins would be the perfect romantic getaway. Be warned - the website describes amenities that are not available yet. The place is basically, under construction - yet you still pay full price to stay. I believe whoever wrote the first raving review was hired to do so.
Although the inside of the cabin was clean and pretty - the outside was lacking in landscaping and lighting. There are construction and building materials stacked around in plain view. Piles of rubble and rock and wood. You feel isolated, not in a good relaxing way but more of a zombie apocolypse way. There was also a bad sewage smell coming out of the shower drain, and a few roach like insects that we had to kill. We never even got our breakfast basket. One of the bath towels was stained which was gross.
The place is also advertised as having a view of the battlefields...but in reality it is not- you are actually 10 miles away and you cannot see them at all.
All of that said, the place has potential, and I can see it being nice when it is finished - key word being "finished". Please be honest with your advertising and do not charge full price for something that you can not deliver. We are laid back people who have stayed at many places, cheap and expensive and we know what matters to a customer. Don't be surprised when you get an angry customer who refuses to pay!
