I stayed here overnight on a business trip. Everyone I encountered at the front desk was super friendly and helpful. I immediately felt welcomed. I loved the cabin I stayed in! Very small space with none of the usual hotel/motel amenities such as TV or air conditioning, but it worked out well for me. The price was right, and it was easy to make reservations. The cabin was very clean and new-looking (with just a few little cobwebs around...hard to avoid those in a cabin, I think). The room was supplied with a big fan, nice bedding, towels and soap (GREAT soap...I wish there had been some I could buy before I left), and comfortable decor. It was a bit hot and stuffy inside when I first closed the door when I went to bed, but it cooled off soon and I slept really well.
The bathroom arrangements were a bit uncomfortable for me. I've stayed in RV parks before and have never minded using group bathrooms, but in this one privacy was tough to come by. The showers open right into the shared space (just a shower curtain between you and the other guests) with no easy way to get out of clothes and back into clean, dry clothes without some risk of exposure. A bit squirmy for a shy person such as myself. I found myself wishing I had brought a big bath robe from home. The bathroom sinks (both of them) are inside the toilet enclosures, so if someone were to go in just to wash their face and brush their teeth, they would have to tie up one of the two toilets as well. The only reason I mention all of this is because someone else with huge privacy issues (like mine) might have a hard time being comfortable using these facilities. Aside from the exposure stuff the bathrooms were totally clean and clearly well-cared for.
Outside my cabin, there was a little front porch with a couple of chairs, some picnic facilities (picnic table, grill, etc.), and friendly chickens roaming around. Great atmosphere! Overall, a very pleasing experience. I would stay here again.
