This was an ok place, but for the price, I wouldn't recommend it. It's a one room "cabin". There is a small sitting area, a decent kitchen with a smallish refrigerator, a full size bed (which I'm pretty sure had been advertised as a queen), and a single bed with trundle. All mattresses were awful. I slept on the trudle and slept horribly, and woke up with a backache.
The tiny, oldish great bathroom is arm's length from the main bed, and the pocket door didn't close all the way. The shower just didn't look inviting and I didn't use it, though I admit I'm pretty picky about my shower.
On the positive, the owner was nice, though she didn't go out of her way to help us find a place to eat. Rather, she told me to look in her book of menus. At such a small place, I expected more personal service, but maybe she was just busy then.
There is a campfire at night which was very nice.
