The cabin had recently been updated right before our stay and was adorable - even better than the photos. The yard was pristine and the cabin very clean and homey. The bed was especially comfortable. The cabin was well stocked with little things that are easy to forget - sponges, dish soap, hand soap, paper towels, matches, etc. And the location can't be beat. We loved it and hope to come again next year!
