This was our third visit to SME and it was wonderful. We stayed in the Ladybug cabin this time. We didn't miss having a kitchen since there is a fridge and microwave. We brought stuff for breakfast and to make sandwiches and ate in town the rest of the meals. The cabin is beautiful, the bed is comfortable. My boyfriend had one small wish in that it had a comfortable love seat or couch downstairs to snuggle up in. Ralph was really helpful in telling us about a hike to Mary's rock. It was challenging, but very doable and we absolutely loved it. They also suggested Thornton River Grill and we had a great dinner there. The highlight this time was probably visiting the Copper Fox Distillery. We got a great tour and picked up a bottle of whiskey to take home. It's delicious. We tell all our friends about this place and I know two other couples are already planning trips. We'll definitely be back:).
