Simple, clean, affordable camping cabin
We wanted camping experience but not in a tent. This cabin was perfect! Closing doors and windows, simple bunk beds, shower, toilet, sink and so clean! The community kitchen was really convenient with fridge to keep our food and dishes and cook Ware for the 2 stoves let us make home cooked meals and share stories with the other cabin renters. The playground for the kids was 2minute walk away, lake was 4minute walk and we could see it from our cabin window. The cafe on site was wonderful! They had amazing food that we indulged in for a chocolate Belgian waffle breakfast, what a treat! The staff was kind, we would definitely go back again. I only wish the lake had easy access to walk in and swim- it was set up for boats with the launch and docks, no beach, no kid area.
