On arrival we were given a key to the first cabin. We went in and saw that it hadn't been cleaned from the night before. Went back to the office where they gave us a key to a different cabin, right next to a wooden fence. On the other side of the fence was the trailer where the family owning the property lives. They were nice enough to move their car out of our gravel space once they saw us there. The cabin was very basic which we anticipated (no phone, no t.v., no alarm clock). The pro's include pet friendly, and excellent water pressure in the shower, coffee maker. Con's include spider webs in the curtains, no coffee filters in the room, sheets coming off the bed once it is occupied, and horrible back pain in the morning. Also our dog was freaked out all night possibly due to the base board heat coming on and making quiet clicking noises. Either way it made for a horrible nights sleep. The breakfast at the cafe in the morning was good. (Not included) The waitress was super nice and they had wifi at the cafe. Espresso machine was not working.
