Good morning, We appreciate your business & the review. I wish we could have talked more during your stay. Had I known about the window or the light downstairs, I would have addressed it while you were here. As far as the air conditioner, the central air is also upstairs, but the window unit is additional. I am sorry that... More

Our cabin featured a sitting area with a fireplace, a porch with rocking chairs, a lofted bedroom and a bathroom with a whirlpool jet tub.... More

$1.85 per gallon gas. Clean bathrooms and Cinnabon to boot. Even if u don't wanna eat one the smells are free!!!! Courteous employees and friendly people all around. If you are driving on highway 40 it's a great place to stop and refresh for your road trip.

Great place to stay if you are looking for a rustic experience. We stayed in cabin #1 and thought the fireplace was a nice touch making homey and cozy.
