My husband and I just returned from a two night stay and we wished we had planned to stay longer... this is the perfect place if you are a seasoned camper who might be looking for a place that is a bit higher level than camping but not a bed and breakfast... a very cute cottage (#5) with everything you...

I was really intrigued by A Better life. The cabins are old yet charming. It is centrally located, a nice meal in N. Conway after hiking Diana's Baths. And it fit nicely within the budget. The owners were warm, cozy, old yet charming too.

This was my 3rd return to A Better Life. The cottages are cozy, clean and offer a serene getaway. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. I love the walking path to the creek and the woods beyond. Convient general store on the property is handy. Very reasonably priced for a great getaway in the mountains.

Me and my husband stayed at one bedroom cabin for two nights. If you are looking for quiet and nice stay, the cottage is great for couple. Although the bed was little uneasy to sleep with and I had problem of getting hot water for shower. They were only two draw backs. Overall our stay was peaceful and nice.

I decided on A Better Life Cabins because I wanted a good old-fashioned mountain cabin experience....right down to the owners....and it was exactly that. Rick (one of the owners) was in the general store (which has EVERYTHING one would need) with a smile and a helping hand when I told him I needed to buy a camera. The cabin was... More

I found Better Life (terrible misnomer) in a fly-fishing guide for the area; I should have known better than to trust the opinion of a guy who was using lodging strictly as a place to sleep. The cabins are extremely small, without a place really to turn around or sit in comfort. It's a place to sleep, period. If you... More

We stayed in Cabin 8, 10/11. The reason for the title is apparantly curry and masala. But the cabin really smells like mold and old male cat urine. It was disgusting!! There is a sign on the wall saying that people are not allowed to cook curry because of the smell it leaves and also not allowed to burn candles... More

We rarely look at TA so I'm a little slow in this response. If there was an issue on the dates you stayed (10/2 & 10/3), why did you not say something?
