We spent two nights in cabin number 5 last week. The staff were all very nice and the view was spectacular. I could only give it a two for several reasons. We were told our cabin would have a fireplace. This was important to us, and unfortunately, it did not. They were unable to relocate us to a cabin with a fireplace. Since our last visit the bushes were allowed to grow up above the fence which meant that you could not see the beach while sitting in your cabin or on your patio which had been one of our favorite things to do.
We understood that it would be rustic and we have stayed in many lodges etc. that were described as rustic. There is charming rustic and then there is utilitarian rustic - which describes this cabin. No charm whatsoever.
The location is wonderful and we would probably go back for that alone, but it is highly overpriced for what you receive. We would not pay for a bluff cabin again unless the shrubbery was cut down so you could actually see the beach.
