Was pleasantly surprised! The photos don't do this property justice. Loved how close to the park it was, and it was very affordable. Clean room, and it was so wonderful having a kitchenette to prep our food for the next days hike! Highly recommended.

Regular maintenance in every room is needed. Update carpet to wood/vinyl flooring to eradicate musty smell, culk tiles/ jacuzzi, chnage shower curtain liner (it has molds on the seams), check electrical outlet and tv functionality… other than that, i think the location and its view is just so wonderful!
