Our family of 8 adults and 2 children stayed in 4 cabins, #s 2, 3, 4, and 15. All of them were great and served our needs. They were all close together and had porches w/ plenty of chairs. # 3 even had a porch swing and hammock. Check in was a breeze. We were informed at check in that the area was in extreme fire danger and we wouldn't be able to cook out on the grills. Would have been nice to know that ahead of time but not a huge deal. We did see a couple of other people cooking out in the Upper Canyon area so not sure if it was just Storybook Cabins that was enforcing this or not but we were certainly not going to take a chance of starting a fire. All of the cabins were very clean. Beds were comfortable and linens were good. Towels were refreshed after two days but you could go to the office and request more if needed. The kitchens were well stocked with the basics, including corkscrew. All cabins were air conditioned but only #15 had central air. The 2 bedroom cabins were not as easy to keep cool as they only had window units in the bedrooms. This would probably not be an issue but they were having a bit of a heat wave when we were there. Storage space for luggage and clothes was limited in the 1 bedroom cabin. There was a kind of built in closet next to the bed w/ a few shelves but no real good place to put a suitcase. This would only be an issue if it was a long term stay. We managed fine for 4 nights. WiFi was pretty reliable, not a really strong signal but still usable 99% of the time. The location in Upper Canyon was great, about a mile from the edge of town but still in the trees. We saw deer everyday and bears the first two nights. Quiet time is from 10 pm to 8 am. I have stayed in a private cabin that is managed by Storybook but this was the first time in their on site cabins. I would definitely return. We were all really pleased with the accomodations.
