The cabins were all that we expected from the website. The steep winding gravel road up to the office was a little scary and the "office" at the top was more like a construction shed, not what I imagined but it really didn't matter. The cabin had everything we needed and was well kept. The location was further from Byson City than I realized and we ended up driving more than planned. My kids were too little for the nearby rafting, but I imagine if you're into rafting this is a great area to stay.
There's no playground or area for kids except for a field of grass down the hill from us. Would be a better place for a romantic/adult getaway then one with small kids. Some cabins have hot tubs which I wish I chose but didn't. Overall pleased.
