Staying at Rafter J in a Comfort cabin with AC was the highlight of our accommodations on our trip to the hills. They are well set up. We had a queen bed and a set of bunk beds. There is a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker and sink. There is a booth type table also in the cabin. The bathroom was nice too. It has a stand up shower, sink, mirror and toilet. The windows had wooden shutters on the inside of the window to keep light out. This is a genius move to avoid dust musty curtains - good thinking on Rafter J's part. You bring your own bedding and cooking supplies. The carpet was in good shape and there was a vacuum provided in our cabin. Another plus was that the beds were tall enough to put your bags underneath so you aren't tripping over them. There is both a charcoal grill and a firepit with grate outside your cabin. There are nice concrete pads out of your front door both under the front porch area and further to the front, so if you did hit a rainy patch, it wouldn't be muddy. There is also a picnic table out front. The cabins are spaced nicely. You are near the highway so you can hear it outside of your cabin, but it is not visible. This is a bonus from the other resorts I saw in the area. Lots of resorts with cabins are in plain view of the highway.
The pool was nice. Playground good too. There are a few arcade games near the pool. Wood was $4.50 for a small bundle. I also did laundry here as it was midway through our trip. Washers are average size for $2.25 a load. Dryers are HUGE and 25 cents per seven minutes on whatever intensity you choose - high, med or low. I dried my two loads in one dryer.
They sell a lot of things at the camp store. We did end up buying an extension cord as there are not a lot of outlets in the place. They are confined to the kitchenette area. There are not outlets outside of the cabin, so to set up a radio, we had to run a cord.
We could have done OK without the AC, but it was one of those things that you just never know what you're gonna get at the end of July. So we were glad to have it. We paid a total of $118 with all taxes and fees. We wish we would have stayed more than one night and made this our home base in the hills.
