The cabin was dated, but that is what a cabin is supposed to be like. It was quiet, warm in our cabin and we made some great meals in the kitchen. Although the kitchen may not have had more than a frying pan, knives, and basic plates, the staff was very accomidating by bringing any other kitchen gear we requested. Deer walked right up to the windows of our cabin, birds were everywhere, we saw moose and evidence of wolves. It was great.
The lodge included so much in the package, snowshoes, breakfast, wine one night, classes on soap making and naturalist activities.
I panicked the first night without phone service (no phone in the cabins), no cell service and their internet is shaky at best, but once I got over that, I realized how great it was to be un plugged for three days.
Wonderful time and we will be coming back!
