my husband & i rented a cabin for our anniversary and had the loveliest time. our section of cabins was nicely secluded by a tree line between each building. we had neighbors on either side both nights and we hardly noticed them. there was a fire pit out front (someone was so nice as to leave us a few great hefty logs) and a picnic table where we ate breakfast & dinner each day. we really didn't see many people while we were there (a Monday & Tuesday). just some curious raccoons that came creeping out of the trees at night. i know they're pests, but the baby was just darling. that said, be meticulously clean about your food waste.
the cabin was really clean, had AC, a stove top, fridge, and all the dishes & utensils we needed. the bathroom was roomy & the shower had nice water pressure.
water access was about a five minute walk away. at first, i was put off by the fact that it was just below an underpass. then the midday heat struck and i was thankful for the shade over the water. plus, it was full of barnswallows, which were pretty entertaining to watch.
prices were reasonable, the store had everything you could need in the event that you forgot something at home. my only complaint is the bed. i think the mattress was made of bricks.
i look forward to going back for another getaway with my husband. OR with a group of friends. the cluster of secluded cabins would make for a great group destination - gather in front of one cabin or escape back to your own place for some time alone.
