Really wonderful for a family reunion
I hate to write a good review, because we hope to get the cabin again next year and I don't want it to fill up -- but of course, that's not fair, because the cabin was great. We had between 13 and 19 people over three nights -- seven families, with mostly teenage children and couples. I was worried because families wouldn't all have their own room, but everyone was very flexible and slept where they needed to sleep. You should consider that, however, if your families aren't as flexible about sharing rooms. The listing was exactly accurate on rooms and beds, so we were prepared ahead of time. The property was clean and well maintained. Everyone ooh-ed and ahh-ed as they walked in, since the entrance living room is really quite lovely. We had many late night hot tub sessions and an evening around the fire pit for s'mores was fun. The big open dining, kitchen and living room area with a very big dining room table gave plenty of room for seating even our biggest crowd, and the kitchen is very well stocked with both pans and utensils. If you are cooking pasta for 20 like I was you might bring one very big pot, since I had to make several batches in a smaller pot, but it worked and at least there were good pots and pans, plenty of knives, plates and utensils, etc. A living room downstairs, a porch on front, the deck out back,and even a little rock area out the back door downstairs meant that we could all be together for meals upstairs, but then break into smaller groups to talk and play games. The "games room" is an old ping pong table downstairs, but the kids enjoyed it and there was plenty of ping pong equipment. The internet was quick and strong, but not everyone had cell phone service all the time -- at any given time there was always someone who could call out, so it's not really the cabin's fault -- it must have been storms in the area. Some people who stayed in the basement said it was really damp and we were there during a damp week -- keep emptying the humidifier and that will probably help. Also, the remote batteries for the TVs were dead -- if that's important to you, bring a pack of double or triple AAAs, but you can also just use the buttons on the TV. It takes a while for the satellite to start, but it gets a good selection of channels. We went to Laurel Caverns on a rainy day and Idlewild another night; there is plenty to do in the area. Altogether we decided before we left that we would definitely want to vacation here again.
