We loved the location and design of the Bell cabin. We didn't like the entrance road. The day we arrived it was very icy. We didn't know exactly where to park so we stopped just at the entrance to the parking lot and got stuck. The staff had to phone a manager to find out where the gravel was. It took about 15 minutes to get unstuck. We came from Vancouver and were pretty tired. The road should be gritted in icy conditions. Apparently a truck skidded on the road and hit 3 parked cars that week.
