Couldn't have been more pleased with the friendly greeting by the lean-to's namesake, and also with how easy it was to re-book with a credit I had from a year and a half ago! Access to the site was simple, but could use a little bit more of a dry/mitigated path with all the rain that has been coming down, causing tons of mud. Biggest plus was the hot shower, which was pure bliss after a tough day of hiking in the area. Biggest minus was not having any dry wood to start a fire after a rainy day, which would have been a nice touch given the high price for such a basic accommodation. overall, it was an enjoyable experience for a one-night, easy stay on our way to a backpacking trip.
