We stayed in two separate cabins, one attached, and one detached. The grounds are very well maintained and very pretty, especially in October, foliage season. We went without great expectations, and liked our stay enough that we would consider returning again at another time. In fact, the woman (mom of the family who owns and operates the cabins) was extremely helpful in accommodating our timeframe which we changed from our original reservations. This change necessitated them cleaning two cabins for our two-night stay. The first cabin did have a squeaky bed. The second bed was totally wonderful. There are not "burn" marks as in cigarette burn marks (no smoking cabins all), the marks in the carpet are from careless campers who don't know how to keep the hot poker off the carpet. At first I was bummed out that the cabin was carpeted, yet when I walked barefoot on this carpet, I was impressed that it was very clean. The fact that the wall in the bathroom let a little bit of light through was no big deal, really - so what. Our second cabin was better outfittted for a family, but we marveled at the ingenious use of the space, fitting all necessities in. These are rustic cabins, no tv, no cable, no cell phone reception, no microwave. But we loved the wood-burning fireplace, and the being away from it all setting. The highway is noisy, but I doubt you'll be out very late. If you can go to sleep earlier and plan on getting up early, then the roadway noise is not intrusive. The family who runs the cabins were very hospitable to us.
