Verified reviewvery good

Skip's Shack suited my needs for a short term stay. Wonderful views at dawn and dusk. I would certainly stay there again.

Verified reviewvery good

great place to stay for a day or two: a warm welcome, facilities are ok, a quiet place but still close to town. Barberton is not a place to stay for a week, but for a short stay it's fine: nature is beautiful, the town has a nice Belgian bar, and Bushwhacked is a nice, comfortable place to stay.
