Expected more than this.. Bugs were a huge issue. The theatre room didn't work. We called maintenance to fix it, and he was clueless about how to. He was on the phone with another guy talking him through it and he still didn't know. The putt putt room isn't in there either, not sure why they have it pictured. Tiles in the kitchen were broken and "hidden" by a rug. Out of all the cabins we stayed in, this is the only cabin we had a bear problem with. A baby bear was walking around the bottom of our cabin looking for food. Luckily it got scared and ran. Getting to the cabin itself was a little frustrating but not too awful. The view was breathtaking, absolutely beautiful. The TV's were on the smaller side and the theatre room chairs were broken. Mattress was very stiff. Still a good cabin for the price.
