This is a cozy basement bachelor suite with a double and single bed in the same bedroom. The bathroom is very small with a shower - the shower head at 5′ 11” (180cm) and the ceiling at 6′ 4” (193cm). The sink is in the room right in front of the bathroom. It is best suitable for three guests. While the location is ideal, it is pocket-friendly accommodation so you can enjoy your stay without any worries. The flipside is that the temperature control for the basement suite is located in the upper cabin and can’t be adjusted, and the stairs to the Gopher Basement Suite are tight and fairly steep.
