This was the worst travel experience I've ever had and I've traveled extensively and in third world countries. I truly do not know what other people are talking about unless the people who own this place are writing their own reviews. Words cannot describe the "road" leading to this cabin. It is a sliver of a dirt road cut into the side of a hill with a sheer cliff on one side; we were seriously afraid driving it. And yes, it takes forever to drive the 7 miles to get to the cabin. The pictures are extremely deceiving. It is not next to a river--that is about a 1/4 of a mile away. It IS on a dirt road--the same one you drive up only by the time you cross the river (on an ancient questionable bridge after 15 minutes of driving) you are no longer on the side of the hill but on the hill itself so there are other cabins around you--not secluded as the site says. Again, the cabin is right ON the road. And when we were there in September, there were face flies. Millions of them. Terrible! Made unloading from the car to the cabin horrible and once inside the tiny --and I mean tiny--cabin life wasn't any better. There was hardly room to move. We obviously couldn't go outside to sit on the deck because of the bugs, but not sure we would have anyway--what were we going to look at --the cars driving by or the ugly trailer parked just below where the caretaker lived (although we could not find him) or the other cabins around us? It was far from lovely. When I initially called to get information before booking, they did say it was a 7-mile road but never mentioned that it was up a steep climb with only room for one car and the drop off on one side. This is not a minor detail! If you plan on spending time in the park as we were and as I told them we were, this would not be the place to stay EVEN IF it was a decent place (which it is not). We did not stay because the situation was so awful. The owners refused to take any responsibility and would not refund any part of the money we prepaid. So BEWARE!!!
