The cabin was quaint and very comfortable. We stayed in Family Chalet Spruce which has two bedrooms, one kichen and one sitting room with fireplace and television. We can cook ownself food. The owner was Passionate and Professional. Great long weekend with my friend! Quiet atmosphere. Close to Whiteface mountain!
