Pros: Fabulous idea having free breakfast food available - thanks
Location: close to concert
Facilities: Home away from home; Service: Go the extra mile; Cabin was great for 3 of us. Clothes line between cabins would be good for togs & towels. We used the power cords instead.

Cons: No top sheet provided. It was 25+ degrees over night and the bedding consisted of flanette sheets and a duvet. A little bit too warm for that!
