    Only cost not included on activities is the bike rental and stables. All the food was reasonably priced. I believe the pancake breakfast was $3. Drinks and sides extra.

    Depends on the type of cabin you are renting. We had the basic camping cabin. One room. We brought our own linens. The bathrooms were a hike from where we stayed, so we drove for showers.
