Great place to unplug that still has plugs
Great place to unplug, relax, take a short hike or two, and enjoy the scenery and wildlife. If you have a moment when you need to plug back in we found our cell service worked great while there. We had a nice meal on their deck with some good beer and even saw a moose while eating. Perfect stay for us. Very clean room and we had everything we needed. Plan on bringing your own meals outside dinner time as they were only serving dinner during our stay but it was no big deal for us. Glad we found them :)
