Back to basics. It is not fancy by any means. It is not the Super 8, Best Western Nor Motel 6. What it is, is a unique slice of heaven. There is no room service, telephone in room or cell service. You're back to basics! For me the enviorement was very rustic. We stayed in the Trail Bunk. For my family of 3 it was just perfect! It is smaller than I had expected but considering we did not vacation there for the room it made no difference to us. A good rule of thumb is when you arrive and plan on using their appliance, cookware and serving items...clean them. Not saying they're dirty, just saying I'm a bit of a germ freak. The Trail Bunks come with a sliding glass door so you're never cut off from nature. There is no air conditioner nor swamp cooler, however they do provide a box fan and has a ceiling fan to circulate the air. During the day we left the door open and it was pleasent. I did take my own fan cause I sleep with one and weren't sure if they had one. The beds are not very comfortable but considering we could feel the springs we slept fine. Enough of all that.....they have a tiny playground and a tiny two story playhouse, also lent my daughter a bike to ride. :) The creek is close by and fun to hop along on the rocks. The night time was by far the best for me. I grew up in the country ( now live in the city next to a busy BUSY road) and would fall asleep listening to the sound of the frogs and other night time critters. With the creek being right there it was the most beautiful sound and brought back lots of fond memories. We ARE going back and will continue. The office was friendly and helpful. Just good people and a great place.
