This is as relaxing as it can get at a Calfiornia National Park. The cabins are simple, clean, new, and maintained by people who love this place. We spent two nights in #3 cabin. After hiking the manzanita trail and then taking a 1.8 stroll around the lake, the cabin was a special place to rest and recoupe. The sunsets are not to be missed. The wild life around the lake is something that always amazes a city person like me. At sunset there were bats flying and drinking from the lake. In the mornings we watched osprey (raptor) hunt for its breakfast. We are definitely coming back and bringing friends. Note that if sleeping on a hard bed is not your style, bring an air mattress. My husband thought the hard mattress was perfect. I was too tired after hiking to care.
