          I'm glad to see your honest review here. We also had a negative experience at this place. The owner can't take any criticism and just makes excuses for everything and lashes out at the guest for bringing up any issues. We had the same confusion over the extra charge for hot tub and had to change to another cabin.

          Hi I was wondering how much you paid for your wedding if you wouldn't mind? (just the basics not the extras such as flowers or photography) and we only need one or two nights stay. we love the place but are on a budget! tia
