we had a private room with private bath, it was fine, no frills just a bed. The hosts are very knowledgeable and friendly, and really keep an eye on the place. We felt very safe. The included breakfast was great, bread, fruits, cookies. I would recommend cooking a few meals in their kitchen as the restaurants in town are overpriced and nothing to write home about. There is a nice secluded parking area right behind the building.
As a side note, don't waste your time and money at the official Cloud Preserve, it's just walking paths where u dont see anything except maybe some birds. The suspension bridge is weak, as in lame. the water fall is tiny. Go with one of the other outfitters that does ziplines and stuff.
