Thank you for the wondrous stay. The cabins were rustic with class. As the weather was changeable we could have used a light blanket instead of a heavy comforter.This was a great place to land for 3 days. We loved the inside and outside of this place. Thank you housekeeping for the fresh towels each day too.

We arrived Sat August 29th excited to see our cabin for the 4 day stay, only to be disappointed by the uncleanliness of the room. The rug didn't looked vacuumed, dirt in the corners by the bed, an old q-tip left behind the sink and used coffee cups left on the bathroom sink. Dust on all the ledges of the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the peace, tranquility and coziness of this cabin. Appreciated the willingness to honor our request for a particular cabin. Loved cabin the way it is The room was warm and clean. The staff were helpful and friendly A bit more variety of food on the menu would be nice but the food we had was good. .

We spent one night in a cottage; had to prepay when booking and upon leaving they charged us the tax as an extra cost. The cottage had a small gas fired stove for heating; small bathroom with warm water; the TV has no reception so you must rent video's or sit out on the covered balcony and enjoy the night... More

A cabin in the woods was what we were looking for so it fit our description. Great beds for comfort. Would have been nice to have more comfortable sitting chairs for reading. Serenity would be a good word to describe our stay. All was fine.

We had two nights stay, everything is in average except the location. The housekeeping was disappointed (it seems no housekeeping at all, even no new towels), we asked the reception wondering if anybody cleaned our room? The answer was "yes, it should be...........but if not, sorry about it." Understood.......but hey, we are on vacation. We have cancelled our reservation for... More

Thank you for making us and our pet feel so welcoming and at home. It was exactly what we were looking for to get away from the noise of the city and traffic. The food was good and the staff were helpful. There is a lot see within a short distance. The room was also very nice and the check... More

We expected rustic but comfortable, and got it. The cabin was roomy enough, bathroom had no tub but a good shower, small refrigerator/cooler supplied, very comfortable bed, old furniture, but a weird disinfectant smell when we arrived. Windows open - problem fixed. Neighbors were quite close but quiet and respectful. Loved having a porch (but, yeah, needed mosquito repellant!) You... More

We weren't quite aware of the location of the cabins near a popular tourist stop. Wanted (at the end of our stay) to make the hike to the falls but there were bus loads of people, even parking on the parkway. Did a bit of the hike, but got fed up with the crowd and returned. I suppose it's better... More

A little resort of various cabins in the Rocky Mountains, the Johnston Canyon Resort was a great night stay. We stayed in the Pilot Mountain Cabin which included a nice bathroom including a beautiful slipper bathtub and separate shower. The cabin was a nice size for 2 people, with a large bed, loft style sitting area that lead to a... More
