Great location!
This is a really nice get away within walking distance to Johnston Canyon trail. Its great to park right next to your cabin because parking is a nightmare if you don't have a reservation. The cabin was perfect size, clean, and secluded. There were a lot of mosquitos outside but very few were able to get into the cabin. It was hot in the summer time and there is no AC but the front desk was nice enough to give us a fan which was perfect.

Scenic location, nice staff, Bed in a drastic need of an upgrade (very old/worn) Internet add shows a tub (there wasn't one). For the price an easy upgrade for the owner would be to put in a top quality bed and upgrade internet/TV.

8/10 Very good

Beautiful area within walking distance of Johnson Canyon. Cabin beds were comfortable but on the firm side. However, Propane heater was broken and we were given an electric heater. It was difficult to maintain a good temperature without a thermostat at night so it was a bit cold at night. Days were comfortable, though!
