My friends and I booked cabins "James" and "Tom" for a three-night stay and there was plenty of room for the six of us (we slept in one and used them other for food prep/ coolers/board games). It was mid April so probably just the start of the season and we had the whole area to ourselves. The parks are a quick drive away, so is the town of Thurmont (for groceries, etc). The cabins were pretty open to the air, so you could hear the frogs in the night and wake up to the birds in the morning. Light camping mattresses were good for the bunks/beds. It was a short walk but a lovely trail to the bathhouse.
Do note that the drive into these and the adjacent one has quite a steep ditch and is pretty rocky; we were ok with the vehicles we brought, but I wouldn't recommend driving up it with a regular car.
