I think (hope) the poor reviews relate to the same cabin (8). It has no view save scrubby woodland, it was dark, dusty (I gave it a good brush as soon as we arrived. Crumbs and cobwebs. The cabin was poorly laid out and positively gloomy. The website suggest luxury but the furniture was cheap and tired. All of this would easily be forgiven if you could see the mountain and national park through the window. The owners are lovely and have done amazing things with their land but I would strongly recommend asking which cabin you are booked into and ask about the position. The website provides photos which raises expectations, sadly did not deliver
