Deb and I stayed at Hut 15, a pine hut with two king-size beds and two bathrooms. Our cottage was adorable, with rustic country touches in the living room and room. The cottage was cold when we arrived that night, but the Story Book cabins offer cut wood and matches.
We quickly warmed up after lighting a fire in the brick fireplace. A swipe of the oven warmed the rooms and bathrooms, and we had cosy duvets on the beds to keep us warm during our sleep. The cabin was spacious, with a table for four and a living room for five.
The kitchen had a stove and oven, a full fridge, sink, microwave, coffee maker, pots, glassware and dishes for four. The farm had a picnic table, a barbecue and a hot tub; Up front, a covered porch looked over the other huts in the woods. In the morning we grabbed the car, a small mule deer arrived just outside the vestibule. The cabin was clean and well maintained, comfortable and comfortable, perfect for families on holiday.
