We spent two nights in the Hideaway lodge and it was great! The playground and animals kept the kids occupied for hours! (A definite plus for the parents!) The unit was a bit small but given that we were mostly only there to sleep, it wasn't a problem for us. The place was clean and the host was very helpful....

We were there in July 2014 and it was just an awesome place to stay at. I have two girls and they really enjoyed staying there because of the park, the slides, the animals to feed late in the afternoon. The service was nice too! We spent 4 peaceful nights there. We'll definitely go back to that place!
