I found the cabin very dusty inside with little little care for the outside. Welcoming was reduced at its minimum. Nevertheless the location was great, and primitive camping was a good experience.

Cabin was clean, as well as the bathroom. Very quiet, primitive camping. Went with my dog and she enjoyed it as well.

Primitive Cabin
The stay was nice. Deep woods were very dark at night which was cool. The cabin was spacious and clean with a table and chairs. Hosts were very nice. Saw some bears in the early evening while we were grilling!
