What makes a cabin deluxe? All the cabins have a shower/restroom, refrigerator, microwave and sink. Each cabin sleeps 5; one futon folds down into a double bed and one bunk bed has a single on top and a double on the bottom. The bunk bed is in a separate room. A television and DVD player also are included, but you need to bring your own DVDs.
