Overall we had a good stay with plenty of nearby hiking and fishing. The cabin was very well stocked with all you need in the bathrooms and kitchen. Everything worked just fine. The cabin is very warm and welcoming. It was a little warm in the afternoons so we definitely needed to use the fans (another fan or two would be nice).
We loved sitting on the deck in the mornings and evenings. The surroundings were quiet and that is what we were looking for. The grill worked well.
Our primary issues relate to the lack of curb appeal.
The listing notes a garage as an amenity but the garage is locked and not accessible.
We found the audio/video camera at the door somewhat discomforting.
Overall a nice place but needs more work on the outside to be a good value for the amount charged.
Property was as described. But location was further away from CS than anticipated with the numerous "hills" in between.
