I'm not from there, but heard good things about Pies and Pints, looks like it could be like a pub type restaurant. Has excellent reviews as well. Good Luck.

Hi, Do rustic cabins have a fire pit? Is the a water spicket near by or a place to wash dishes? Is there phone service? Thanks, MK

They have a fire pit, but no water. They do offer a great shower house with unlimited high pressure hot water. Cell service is limited.
