Good for roughing it. Great view of Bear River. Cabins are nicely built. Owner is very friendly. Read the website IRT what to bring (ie: bed linens & sleeping bags). Property could use some tidying up. Electricity grid needs to be upgraded so that it can power the amenities on a chilly fall night. Thankfully I have a booster pack backup to power my sleep apnea machine. All in perspective and price point. Was nice to get out of the city for a couple of nights...

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities
Cottage had a view of the river, a lovely gazebo and was very quiet. Driveway was not well maintained. There was someones shorts next to a chair which leads me to think that it wasn't cleaned as well as it should have been. No dishes or utensils. Bathroom was tidy but shower stalls were, top to bottom, soap scum. Although it was a nice spot...I would not recommend it.

Don’t book anything with travelocity we showed up at 3:15pm on the day and he had nothing available and we had to go all the way home. Travelocity has inaccurate information and we lost a whole day and a lot of money travelling to be sent all the way home!
