The cabin also features contemporary furnishings and rustic decors to make any stay wonderful. For guests’ convenience, the cabin has been fitted with a queen-sized bed spacious enough for couples. Fans have been provided to compensate for the lack of airconditioning. You’ll find an adequately-stocked mini-kitchen inside so you can cook up a meal before exploring the park.
