My family and I had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights mid week at the end of July this year (2012). We had such a wonderful time that we requested to stay an extra night (we only booked for 2 nights) and were greeted with such a big smile from the owners that it melted my heart. My two little girls (age 5 and 3), said and I quote "We love it here, can we live here!!!".
The rooms were pleasantly comfortable and beautifully rustic....although to my husbands camping standards he called it glamping!!! lol. We loved the fact that we didn't have to bring anything except our clothing, food, drinks, and toiletries. Of course we brought all our own fishing gear and enjoyed the many lakes to fish in.
We loved the fact that every cabin had it's own wood stove and that there was a central fire pit to do a nightly hot dog roast and make s'mores. The girls loved to play soccer in the meadow and pet and feed the llamas.
To those of you who think the rules and horror stories are excessive.....you only have to use common sense and clean up like you would at home. This is not the Hilton, but a homey cabin that should be treated as if it was your own. They certainly stock it so that you feel that you are at home.....but I guess that there are those people that expect others to clean up after they leave messes and their own homes reflect that.
I highly recommend the Cheechaco Cabins for anyone with a family. It is off the main road, so you don't have to worry about your kids getting hurt, and the no guest policy makes it nice to allow you kids to travel the yard freely without the need to be constantly at their sides. The library in the office is stacked with DVD's to choose from if you choose to watch the satellite TV and not enjoy the peace and quiet that is available outside your door.
Thank you Cheechaco Cabins for our wonderful stay. We will be back!!!
