My family and I stayed at the cabin for the week of New Years. Before arriving we were already impressed in the timely manner in which Tom, the cabin owner responded and gave us all of the information that we needed. We over-prepared for the cabin unaware that we would arrive to a full kitchen and amenities.
Our family stayed a whole week with our dogs (even with the 6 of us we had plenty of room) and each day was a new adventure. The view each morning overlooking the mountains was breath-taking and the place itself was in perfect, clean and pristine condition and even decorated for the holidays. The pictures make the cabin rooms look a lot smaller than they are so we were pleasantly surprised by the space which allowed us to kick back and relax.
During our stay Tom was efficient in answering our questions and we felt at home. We arrived to a book full of local information and helpful tips. We explored the grounds and made use of the snow -going an hour away to cross-country ski and snowmobile. We had a blast and could not have asked for a more comfy space to come back to at the end of our longs days and on the days where we preferred to stay by the fire. We made full use of the game room with a family tournament of darts, fooseball and pool.
It was such a relief to find a place to vacation home that included everything we needed all with great views.
We would highly recommend this cabin to others and are looking forward to coming again soon!
I scoured the internet for the perfect rental in the Errol area and upon first glance of this chalet's pics, long-list of accommodations, and top reviews, I immediately knew this was the place to book for an outdoor getaway. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is this chalet is without question even better in person. We knew it was going to be nice but it's even more impressive in person as the layout is even more spacious throughout, including the second floor game area. Regarding the latter, for example, I pictured a smaller half loft and wondered how many game tables and other items could fit up there, but it's actually extremely spacious and therefore is decked out like no other cabin or chalet we've rented in the past. The place is maintained in immaculate condition and it's obvious the owner takes great pride in maintaining to the highest of standards. And lastly, the owner goes the extra mile in all aspects from excellent communications (highly responsive!) to ensuring our stay was perfect. On our arrival day we encountered a bad snow/ice storm and he contacted right away to ensure we made it safely. (As highlighted by others, 4WD or AWD is a good idea as the road leading up to the chalet gets slick when initially ice/snow covered, however, the road crew does a good/fast job clearing and sanding for traction.) Our group looks forward to the next opportunity for staying at this chalet and embarking in more outdoor getaways; also, I'd like to bring my wife up there for a romantic getaway as the chalet nestled in a mountain backdrop w/ incredible views makes for a spectacular setting.
We had a perfect long weekend at this beautiful cabin! The cabin was cozy and provided all the comforts of home. Many hours were spent in the loft playing pool, darts and cards. We enjoyed cooking big breakfasts and family dinners in the well appointed kitchen. A soak in the large jacuzzi tub was a great way to end a day spent playing outside with our dogs. Make sure if you rent this home in the winter, you have a 4 wheel or all wheel drive vehicle. The hill leading to the cabin is steep and windy and not well maintained. Once we made it up the hill, we didn't want to come back down for the great time we had. We will be back for sure!
This is one of those scenarios where the written or spoken word cannot do justice to accurately depict the reality of this fine camp. My wife and I stayed for a 3 day mini-vacation and could not have hoped for a more wonderful stay. This cabin is immaculate and we were stunned on arrival to find things as clean and perfect as they were. The pictures cannot do true justice to just how splendid this cabin is. Every conceivable amenity is included and makes just unpacking and enjoying all that is left! The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the views and sunsets from the deck are unsurpassed. Discretionary income is harder to come by these days, but this cabin is a true value in every way. We were so impressed that we immediately booked another stay. If it is the pure serenity of peace and quiet, the amenities anyone could need and the prospect of being overwhelmed by rustic charm and fantastic sunsets - this is the rental for you! The charm of the game loft, the double-sided fireplace, the cleanliness and comfort are truly a delight. Tom was simply wonderful to work with and made us feel welcome and cared about. It does not get any better than this dreamy vacation retreat! If there were more stars on the rating - we would max it out every time!! Thank you Tom

My husband and I were looking for a quiet weekend away and this was perfect! We didn't do too much site seeing as there was plenty to keep us busy and relaxed in the house. The pictures don't do the cabin justice as far as beauty and cleanliness. It was perfect and gorgeous! The view of the mountains was great! Main was a short drive away with some great stops of amazing views. Lots of hiking in the area as well. I highly recommend and look forward to going back again in the future.
Started out just looking for a getaway with some of my closest girlfriends. Ended up with much more then we ever imagined. The view to the cleanliness was just absolutely amazing. Tom was wonderful and funny to work with and has lots of conversation peices around the house that kept us entertained. The outside fireplace with coffee drinks in the morning and some wine at night was just what us working moms needed to relax. Thanks again for a fantastic time, only regret was not staying longer. Next time might even bring the hubby and kids..maybe!
