We had perfect fall weather the weekend we stayed, with the trees at peak color. The cabin is lovely, charming and comfortable. Our boys (5 and 2 1/2) loved running to the porch each morning to see the horses in the paddock, just steps from the cabin. The parking spot for the beach was very easy to find, beach access very convenient. The kids enjoyed roasting hot dogs in the fire pit, we adults enjoyed long evenings with a big fire in the wood stove. Stop 50 Pizza delicious as usual. Took the kids to Boo at the Zoo, which they loved, we went trail riding at the stables, and took a trip over to La Porte to the Hesston Steam Train Museum for a "Ghost Train" ride. The Galien River walk was gorgeous with all the fall foliage, kids loved collecting acorns. The cabin is very well maintained with lots of attention to the small details. It DOES have a great shower as another guest pointed out. Very peaceful and secluded, but also with very easy access to just about everything the area has to offer. The only bummer is that the kids didn't really want to leave, and our 2 1/2 year old seems to think it's "our" cabin. I think he's making plans to return…we will definitely be back. Thank you Claudia, for your hospitality.
