Good news everyone!
Excellent stay, close to lots of trails, cozy and very clean cabin. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I suggest this to anyone who wants an escape for a few days or more. There was plenty of space. We were only two but the cabin had two bedrooms and could easily accommodate 8 ppl. It's also easy to find if that's a concern. We mainly went hiking, but there seemed to be numerous trails for other off-roading activities etc.
