My Hubby & I stayed here for 2 nights last year (fall). It's quaint, off the road, quiet (as long as you are the only Guests) The Cabin is divided into 4 rooms & when all are full, there is no privacy.It does have a certain charm, being in the woods. No view at all from Cabin, except woods. If you walk down a meandering path, however, you will enjoy a Great view! We had to stumble upon it ourselves. The room was dingy, dark, & VERY outdated with a small TV mounted on the wall (an old style TV) the management has a "Get Together, Game Cottage though, with a small Video Library (needs updating) & games & publications available for Guests to use. It also had a refridge, with juice & granola bars offered. Back to the Room, Needs updating & freshening up. Dull. The bathroom was ok but had a note taped to toilet, regarding method of flushing. Just get it Fixed!!!
The Breakfast was very nice & well cooked. Probably the best feature of the stay & the Innkeeper was very pleasant.
Economic conditions are tough & in order to compete with other lodging venues in the area, a lot of work needs to be done here. Too expensive for what is offered.
