We have always tented and decided to upgrade to a cottage this year but still wanted to have the 'in the woods' feel. Camp Adelle in Cochran's Cabins was the perfect choice. It was rustic but provided many amenities that are missing in a tent! The Cochran's also run a bed and breakfast on the property and they exude such warmth that I would imagine that is a wonderful experience, as well. We had some plumbing difficulties early on in our stay and they were promptly fixed---a new toilet and pipe work within a few hours!! The owner sent over a basket of fresh muffins for our trouble--how nice is that?? Their website provides realistic summaries of each cabin and it truly is as private as they describe. We used the cottage as our base camp and did extensive hiking in the nearby high peaks as well as kayaking and swimming right from our cabin. We will definitely be back, it was ideal!
