A beautiful location in nature
We love this place. A great place to get away. Very cozy cabins. The cafe and restaurant served good hearty food, but the staff had a bit of end-of/-season familiarity with each other, and casuality that seemed to make them indifferent to guests in their care. Still, we'd go again.

3/5 Okay

Lovely cabin
We hiked the canyon, came back down and got into our cabin. We had a small deck with a lovely view. We had our dinner in the restaurant and both enjoyed our meals. The service was excellent.
