my husband and i didn't come into it with high expectations, but really enjoyed our time here! it's a backpackers lodge, so it's nothing fancy, but everything was very clean, and we really enjoyed hanging out watching movies with other guests in the common area. nice big kitchen, and the owner is very friendly. our favorite part about staying here was the surroundings... big fields with sheep, cows, horses, deer, etc. and it was fun to walk around. the blackwater rafting co. is a less-than 5-minute walk down the road, which was very convenient. we would definitely come back!
