These cabins were a great match for our families
Submitted: September 8, 2011
Stayed: August 2011
We rented Bluebell cabin and our son's family rented the larger cabin next door. This gave us access for our eveniing meals together, playing ball on the lawn, sunning on the beach, playing in the river, cookouts and stargazing on the gravel beach in front of our cabin, time to play games in the larger cabin, ease to visit Stop The Car Trading post for incidentals (such as drinks and ice cream and hamburgers)
Our one room with attached bath was actually quite spacious for two people. We enjoyed our views of the river and mountain. there may be nicer places to stay nearby---but none with our view.
Our son's cabin was spacious enough for all 7 of us to cook and eat together.
Even though it was on the HW 212 and next door to a restaurant, the trees in front completely hid the cabin and made a sound break for the very few cars that drove by. There was absolutely no noise from the Log Cabin Restaurant, nor the SilverGate General Store across the street. We could hear the sounds of the Grizzly Lodge occupants across the river, the sounds of the foxes yipping in the night, the sounds of the river, the sounds of rain on the roof.
We also appreciated the helpfulness of the community--especially when the lights went out and people had candles and lanterns for us to use in getting back to our cabin. In our small cabin, it only took two candles to give us light in our bath and our studio room. It was our coziest night.
When our landlords were on site, we saw them everywhere --even on Lulu Pass giving us advice on where to take the 4-runner next. John was at the ready to fix whatever needed adjusting and sowing us how to work things we were not used to doing. There was wood burning fireplaces in both cabins, but we actually never needed to use them in August.
I would definately recommend both cabins for those who want authenticity and charm close to civilization if needed.
