5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
It is a nice secluded spot away from the Cedar Lodge but close enough if you need something. I have stayed here twice now and will probably do so again. Drawback is no cell service but honestly it's kind of the reason we go to this location, to unplug.
