We loved our room. The grounds are beautiful with a pond and grassy area and fire pit. Our room had a half bath which was perfect for us and the common bath house was great

August stay
We loved the beautiful cabin. We were upgraded for an additional $25 because the other cabin didn’t have a bathroom which I wasn’t aware of. We would have been very disappointed if we paid $175 for a cabin with no bathroom. Even though the cabin was in perfect shape, we were disappointed in the location. When sitting on the deck we had no privacy or view except the cars coming in and the main office with the restaurant.

This property was built in 1917 and is a historic treasure.looking exactly as you would imagine from that time period.......when making a reservation you need to inquire if this is a “rustic” cabin.......some have private bathrooms and others do not and you share shower/stall/sink situation....which we were unaware of.....worked out ok....the attached restaurant is very yummy......and homage cookies, pies, and brownies........
