    “This was our second stay at this property, it has everything we needed and made for a warm, homely base for our adventure packed weekend.”

    The master bed was a little uncomfortable, but not a major down point in comparison to what this beautiful log cabin has to offer, it was enjoyed by all the family. We would definitely recommend and will return ourselves in the future.
