A group of four friends and I stayed at White Pines in November for two nights. From the very beginning, Carol was very responsive - I was bit concerned about renting a home from a stranger, but Carol spoke with me over the phone to reassure me that she was indeed a real person, and everything was set up in the house for us on our arrival.
The cabin itself is gorgeous, clean, and very well-maintained. When we arrived, they had left brownies for us and dog treats for any dogs we might have brought. We took advantage of some of the games they had in the cabin, as well as the fireplace, a woodburning stove, and an outdoor sauna. Other than a brief walk, we stayed in the cabin all weekend, so I can't speak much to the surrounding area.
I would absolutely rent this property again and would recommend it without reservation!
