We booked a private room (2 adults, 2 kids). There are 2 rooms, at either end of a cabin with a full kitchen. The accommodations were perfectly fine. Brand new outhouse is totally spotless, smells of nothing but cedar . We ended up cooking and hanging out in the main lodge, which is very well equipped. Kitchen, lounge with fireplace, interesting people.
Manager was friendly and professional, location is amazing. No running water, but there's a wood fired sauna so who needs a shower. If you are looking for an economical, comfortable and social experience in the mountains, this is a great spot. If you need a hair dryer and room service, we will be happy to see you go elsewhere. We'll be back for x-country ski season.
One tip - bring headlamps or flashlights to keep beside your bed. Big time dark.
