We were doing a 5 day trip on the W circuit through Adventure Life and this was the first stop. We were prepared to stay in one of the dorms but had the good fortune of getting a cabin. It was cold and snowing lightly when we arrived so getting a private cabin with a wood burning stove was really welcome. Dry wood was provided and sitting in the warmth of the cabin looking up through the skylight and watching the snow come down was very enjoyable. The cabin furniture was minimal - a decent double bed, clean linens and blankets, a nightstand, a few hooks for clothes and the wood stove - but compared to the dorm it was heaven and we really enjoyed it. The cabins are up a hill and a bit of a distance from the main lodge which was a positive in terms of peace and quiet. Waking up to sun and the amazing views from the porch was a delight. Overall, we were very pleased with our experience staying in the cabin. The downside: The cabins share bathroom and shower facilities. The bathrooms aren't heated and the showers were pretty dirty. There was hot water but between the grubbiness and the cold, taking a shower wasn't very appealing. There was a hot tub available but it didn't look very clean so we passed.
The dinner was simple but decent - baked chicken and rice. Breakfast was the usual scrambled eggs, bread, and cereal but certainly ok. The packed lunch had a crummy sandwich of thick and dry bread with chicken filling and a few snack bars.
Overall, the cabin was very enjoyable and a great way to spend our first night on the W circuit.
