Overall, the accommodation was nice. We had two children with us, aged 4 and 6, who LOVED the idea of staying in a "treehouse". They stayed in the upstairs loft which was exciting for them. The unit was very pleasing to the eye and had a neat design to it.
The outdoor deck was a great use of space with a fire pit, chairs, benches and a picnic table. Lots of space for the kids to run around and we enjoyed the peacefulness of the surroundings.
The beds were comfortable and the linens provided were sufficient.
We did have three different uninvited dogs visit our property at various points during our stay. Two larger dogs came and begged for food while we were around the fire and a smaller dog actually came into the house and sniffed around until we kicked him out. At one point, we heard the owners yelling at one of the dogs to "Go Home!" so we know that he didn't belong there but we're not sure who the other two belong to. We have animals at home so having them visit wasn't too much of a hassle but I can see it being an issue for those who do not like dogs.
I definitely recommend bringing flashlights with you to bed and/or leaving the stove light on at night. There are no safety lights in the house and no lights in the ladder stairwells (despite some light switches there that are not hooked up to anything) so when up in the middle of the night to use the washroom it is pitch black and you cannot see a thing. This was especially troublesome during our last night when the smoke alarm went off at 3:30am (don't know why) and we had to fumble about in the dark to get our bearings at first.
Internet service was advertised as being included but really, don't count on it. The service was really spotty and the owners pay by the GB so ask that you don't use it to stream anything. We ended up using our phones to connect which was more reliable.
Overall, this was a nice alternative when staying with a larger party.
