Nice cabins, extremely cold though as our heater was not working. If you plan to stay here, consider bringing a space heater or extra fire wood in case. Otherwise very charming.

4/10 Fair

Other than the fact that the cabin that I stayed when was brand new this was a near nightmare. Communication with the staff was difficult at best due to language differences. The cabin actually has unsafe steps without handrail the front porch has only one rail to the side but not one in the front. There is no television. There is no cell phone service. The Wi-Fi they claim to have doesn’t work inside the cabin. Outside the cabin barely works. In addition they have a guard dog, golden retriever. Which barks at the guess when they come to the front desk. To top it all off when I attempted to leave at quarter till eight in the morning the gates were locked preventing me from exiting the property. I would not recommend this property to anyone.

Do not stay here
Overpriced and the worse accommodation I have ever stayed in for the price

2/10 Poor

Left without staying
Photos on are in no way accurate for the condition now. The cabins are run down, doors bodged with pieces of wood, exposed electrical wiring and cracked fire surround. Onsite restaurant not open despite the website stating it was. We left without staying, staff didn't seem bothered by our comments and made no attempt to fix the issues raised. Would definitely NOT recommend to anyone!

8/10 Very good

Single female who stayed here 3 nights. These were all I needed to adventure between the national parks. The wifi is only in the office, but it reached my cabin & worked fine (cabin 5). Cabins were clean & cute. Saw a spider or two, but that comes with the territory. There was a good sized gap below the door, which I shoved my extra towel under to stop the cold draft during the night. Some sections of windows you could see in, so I covered those with towels too. They provide firewood for you to have a fire inside the cabin. It took me a day to realize you basically have to slam the door shut to get it to lock. There is a deadbolt inside as well. Hot water in the showers worked great every night. I will say I expected them to be a little less pricey since they are so simple. These are perfect for the simple low-maintenance people.

2/10 Poor

This property is nothing like it was described online. The cabins are falling apart, there’s no proper wifi, the restaurant wasn’t open, the cabins themselves smelt of must and mould, they were unclean. There was hole in the door where animals can get into the cabin. The cabin was leaning and was not structurally sound. When I talked to management about a refund as I could not stay in the establishment, I was met with a rude manager and did not offer any solution. I was disgusted with the appearance and I felt unsafe to stay the night as I was travelling alone. I felt as I was mislead by the description and by the photos of this lodge. I was not given a refund even though I did not stay the night, or even make the cabin messy. I was on site for all of 20 minutes before I left. I do not recommend this place to stay at all. I was extremely disappointed to stay the least. I will not be returning.
