    I am in the area often and have not stayed there... First, do any of the rooms have kitchen? do any have access to firepits or outdoor firelplaces? Or indoor fireplace or woodburing stoves. WE are often there in the colder months! :-)

    The Paiute Suite has a full kitchen. All of the cabins/rooms have heaters. Cabin #6 has an outdoor fire pit.
