Clean, quaint. Very hot in room during day (even though it was 62 degrees outside)... made sure to open windows to cool. Very cold at nite and heat doesn't really work that well.... just put on more blankets!

I have stayed here a few times and I absolutely love it! There is a couple of different cabin styles, my favourite is the one with the really big bath in the fireplace and private little patio right next to the Firepit! I love the little pet friendliness and the walking path around the property! The little river is great and the service is excellent! The staff were able to accommodate me when I accidentally locked myself out and I really appreciate all of their assistance!

Didn't appreciate having my credit card tossed back at me at check in asking for a credit card with the same name as my driver licence because the clerk could not read my name. Nice greeting with no apology. Never been treated like that before.

We would definitely go back. We liked our room next to the creek. We enjoyed listening to the birds and the frogs!
