We just stayed the weekend and honestly, we enjoyed the stay. Charlie was very nice, very helpful and polite. We stayed in the cabin #1 with a closed bedroom and fireplace. It was very warm and cozy. We knew it was going to be a little rustic and old fashioned and we weren't disappointed.
Firewood was supplied both days and they even prepared the firewood for us while we were skiing. We had internet in our rooms and both tv's were new HDMI models however only half of the electrical sockets were grounded 3-prong.
Being a bit of a country boy, I felt comfortable in this type of room and setting but I can see how some cityfolk may have issues feeling at home here. The decor was old and the walls were wood panels/presswood. I'm sure Charlie would kick himself if I had told him that he forgot to turn on the hot water tank breaker before we checked in. I figured out what the problem was myself and flicked the switch. We were lucky we didn't need to shower right away lol
I agree that the main lobby (reception building) seems to be falling apart but that is Charlie's home. Who cares what he does there!
At the end of the day, I wanted an affordable room with a fireplace and we got it. We had a good stay
