My friend and I were looking for a cabin for lodging when visiting the PA Grand Canyon and happened upon Happy Acres website...the website is much like the 'resort'...a bit outdated and shabbily done. We took a chance and had a great experience. When we arrived at the campground....which resembles something out of the '60's we were not sure what to expect. We were 'greeted' by Tim the manager - after taking a short walk around the 'resort'..we had reservations for only one night but since the weather was going to be beautiful we asked at check in if we could stay two nights. We were told our cabin was not available for two nights but the "Yurt" was....we hesitantly took the "Yurt". It really was a fun experience and if it was located in a more private area would consider staying there again.
The "Yurt" has a lovely bathroom and cute little kitchen area. Kitchen has a microwave, stove and refrigerator and enough space to cook. There were kitchen utensils, dishes and other supplies. Bathroom has a shower and small Jacuzzi tub. NO hair dryer and no toiletries are included. The bed is a full size bed and quite comfortable. Small TV with satellite reception. Small old couch and chair....never sat on them ---- A small deck with a gas grill and a fire ring and picnic table included. We did no cooking but ate at the Happy Acres restaurant ....food was so-so but within walking distance. Next time we would bring food to cook but would visit the restaurant in the evening for a few drinks! Saturday night live entertainment at the bar!
