*Louann (the owner) was a very kind lady and nice to deal with.
*The deluxe room was really nice for a cabin, roomy and clean
*It was a heck of a lot cheaper than Yosemite (about 40miles away)
*Louann was kind enough to let my daughter's boyfriend call his mother from her house, since the rooms had no phones in them. So kind of her to understand a mother's worrying and to help him out on a personal level like that. I really appreciated that.
*This might be the "city" in me, but there's NO cell phone reception - we are taking zero bars aka NO SERVICE
*There are no land line phones in the cabins
*The furnace was okay the first hour we were there. But then suddenly, it let off a very bad rotten type smell (propane fireplace) and the room became smokey. Louann was kind enough to come in and check on it twice and finally turned it off. She suggested it was the neighbor's cooking lamb, but it wasn't - I know what gas smells like. I'm positive I am right, especially because it went away when it was turned off.
*Well, we live in Hawaii where it is 80 degrees all the time and I didn't want to breathe in that horrible smell all night and not wake up, because it was gas - you know? That can't possibly be safe or good for children to inhale, right? And I couldn't even Google the safety of it, because our phones didn't work. So we slept all night bundled up together FREEZING, literally I felt like I was freezing. It couldn't have been more than 20 degrees, with log walls and all the breeze outside, it felt like we were going to die. Made it a terrible experience. At about 5 am, my kids faces were super cold, so I turned the fireplace back on. It let off this really loud "BOOM" that made me jump out of my pants almost ya know? Like it didn't start right away like it should have. And the smell came back full throttle, super yucky. So I packed up the kids and left. Definitely something needs to be done about that fireplace. My lungs hurt the next day and it just cannot possibly be safe.
