We stayed in a beautiful old cabin here and got to visit the new restaurant for breakfast and dinner on a number of occasions. The old cottages are terrific and the new restaurant very good.

Great place to walk around some of these giant trees to get a grasp of just how big they are. It is definitely worth stopping and hiking around the take in the beauty and magnificence of these giants.
