My husband & I and six of our children stayed at this cabin for 10 days. Two of our adult sons drove our AWD van and our supplies in a uHaul trailer from our home in IL. They picked up another son in CO on the way. The rest of us flew and were picked up at the airport by our sons with our van. We weren't sure what to expect in terms of supplies at the cabin plus one son wanted to bring his motorcycle, hence the uHaul. Climbing the long road ("think" mostly private, one lane driveway winding up the mountain) up to the cabin with a Uhaul was quite an experience, so happy we arrived before dark!
We were pleasantly surprised to find the cabin wonderfully supplied with everthing one would need. Most the items we brought weren't necessary. They had deck chairs, games, laundry supplies, even books which I enjoyed reading!
The view from the deck is spectacular. I spent most my time sitting out there whether reading or enjoying a meal. At night I could see my son's motorcycle headlight winding it's way up the mountain. Internet connection was best out there as I kept my friends updated with awesome pictures.
The older sons enjoyed hiking up to Electric Peak from the cabin and are already hoping to return next summer to try it again. My younger kids, 17, 15, & 12 either went with them or short hikes on their own (with the cabin's bear spray of course).
We stayed 10 days. Traveling up & down the road was a bit more driving than my husband likes so we would only visit the park every other day & just relax at the cabin the off days. This worked out great because the seclusion and peacefulness is what we enjoyed.
I'm somewhat handicapped but found the accommodations very comfortable. I always worry how comfortable a bed will be but found the full size bed to be very comfortable. I also had my own private bathroom! I let my husband have the Queen bed and he shared a jack & jill bathroom with the younger kids. There were 4 twin beds (2 bunks) in their room and they were very comfortable as well. The 3 older sons shared the little log cabin just a stone's throw from the main cabin. It has 2 bedrooms with 2 twin beds each and a jack & jill bathroom. It is well stocked with bedding & towels. It's quite rustic however so if someone isn't used to roughing it (or spiders) they might want to stay in the main cabin.
The only wildlife we saw near the cabin was a deer and a bear cub running up the hill on one of our drives down.
Loved it and hope we can return one day!
