After reading the other reviews I think we are talking about two different age cabins. The one we stayed in was new, accessible, very clean and comfortable. We had a wonderful stay. Knobs Flat is very easy to find and also always accessible unlike Milford Sound where the road is closed in the evening due to landslide potential. It is an easy drive to hikes and the sounds but while the whole area is gorgeous, Knobs Flat, set in a peaceful mountain meadow is blissfully separate from the buses and bustle of Milford Sound. Even if the prices were the same, I would prefer Knobs Flat. The cabin we stayed in had a large bathroom with excellent shower, comfortable bed and well equipped kitchen. (Buy your groceries on your way there!) It has an excellent supplemental heater for cool mornings and wonderful windows with spectacular views. We thoroughly enjoyed our hikes to Lake Marian and Key Summit as well as many shorter walks and the nature cruise. All are short drives from Knobs Flat and all easily done during our two night stay.
