Awesome location 15 minutes from Garden of the Gods, 20 to Rim Rock, 40 to Cave-in-Rock. Lots of wineries and places to kayak/fish. The cabin had everything! Cast iron cookware, TP, grill/charcoal, full kitchen, great water pressure/heater, books and local maps, wood for the stove, and plenty of warm fluffy bankets! It was clean! I saw no dead bugs anywhere. Crickets and a spider but we were in the woods in a cabin. If bugs are an issue for you you aren't going to enjoy any cabin anywhere...or the woods for that matter. Outside is beautiful. The property is goregous. Georgia was laid back and gave quick responses! Check in was a breeze. Check out was just as easy and we didn't have to worry about getting out of there with all our gear at a ridiculously early time of day! If your an outdoorsy person who wants to explore the Shawnee Forest, this is a great central location. Or if you just want some privacy and peace and quiet in a cozy cabin, this is the spot for you! Highly recommend Makwa Lodge!
