“Awful Place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2010

We stayed at Hansens because some friends referred us. We stayed in cabin 6 and it was awful. Built in the 50s and looked like it has not been touched since. We found an old sock in the fold up bed. Moved the couch and there was garbage under and behind it. It was very dusty and full of cobwebs. Lampshades was crushed and others were filthy. Carpet was old and dirty. My wife was coughing all night from the dust mites. There was a huge spider in the sink. I went to the owners and complained but they did not seem to care. Actually not very friendly. The pictures are of the cabin 9 which was remodeled. We actually left one day early and still paid for the second. Would not recommend this place at all. For the money we paind 200 per night with all the taxes we could of stayed at Harveys and paid for the tubing.User Rating

I like rustic. Rustic can be fun. But I have say that Hansens "Resort" is a misleading moniker.
The rooms were threadbare, the pullout couches' cushion compressed to maybe 3 inches and you could feel the coils inside. Fortunately I didn't have to sleep on it my kids did.

Bathroom had great pressure with ample hot water but it was TINY and if you are a person of any girth (thankfully I am not) I think you would have trouble in the compact shower and slipping through to use the toilet.

BUT we stayed here because we wanted to sled ride (rather than ski) with the kids. We ended up having a lot of fun riding down the 2 paths. you get to ride free if you are a guest. So if I were to rationalize it and deducted the $200 worth of sled riding cost we got out of it ((It costs $10/hour per person) our per night cost would have been just $35. At that price it IS a bargain.

However, if you don't have kids or are traveling when there isn't snow I'd look elsewhere.
