Das Personal war nicht unfreundlich, aber auch schnell genervt, wenn man fragen über Wanderrouten o.ä. gestellt hat. Allerdings ist man dafür ja da... Außerdem ist die Küche nicht soo gut ausgestattet und die Backöfen brauchen sehr, sehr lange um warm zu werden! Auf Nachfrage beim Personal kam keine Reaktion. Dagegen war der Blick von unserer Hütte sehr schön und auch die Hütte selbst war schön aufgeteilt und sauber.

The staff is great. Really appreciate them both on the phone and in person. They really go all out. Close to the Amtrak (easy walk). Wish there was a full-service grocery store nearer.
