Being the middle of winter and getting down to -3 deg over night, the room was bitterly cold. 1 thin blanket is insufficient. Even though we had the heater on all night, my entire family were extremely cold and had terrible sleep/ non sleep because of it. More blankets or quilts are definitely required.

Location is great, and love the little cabins and how they are set up. Being winter it does get cold but the rooms stay pretty warm which is great. Disappointed that there is only a little playground but they have basketball court. Overall nice place to stay.
