My wife and I were really looking forward to staying in a rustic cabin at the lake. We are getting older and cannot backpack anymore due to back and hip problems. Anyway, we found that the cabins were not maintained at all, with doors and windows not fitting. The curtains were tattered cloth barely covering the window. No lock for the door except a padlock, but the screws of the hasp were pulled out. We tried finding a better cabin and looked at about 5, all were pretty dirty and some being propped up by boards. The kitchen in the best one we found, was small, which was OK, but the frying pan provided was very sticky, the coffee perculator still had coffee in it and I couldn't find a pot. When I turned on the sink water, I heard water below it and found the pot there catching the water from the drain, which wasn't connected.
Needless to say, we found another resort nearby with clean, functional cabins and switched there without staying the night. I paid in full for 4 nights, and when I cancelled I offered to pay for one night, even though we didn't stay. They readily refunded the 3 nights and it was worth one night fee to move.
I must say the people working there were friendly and the location was excellent, but the condition of the entire resort was extremely rundown. If you have an RV or trailer, it might be a very good place to stay, but I don't recommend the cabins.
