Good location for nature ... in more ways that one.

With Jefferson National Forest just minutes away and a creek in the back yard, the location is excellent for outdoor activities! As others have stressed, this property is really along the lines of camping. I just wasn't prepared for so many critters indoors. We saw 3 mice (1 dead, 2 alive), a gekko (which the kids thought was fantastic! =) ), a cockroach, and a multitude of other insects...all indoors. Also, if you have mold / mildew allergies, you should either bring allergy medicine with you or choose another location to stay.
I would suggest bringing your own sleeping bags and pillows, as well as kitchen towels and rags.
The kitchen appliances worked well, as did the hot water heater. The water cooler in the kitchen was really a great touch! We weren't able to get the security code to work on the computer or WIFI, though.
The pictures on VRBO look quite charming and clean, but they really do not reflect the condition of the cottage. From the guest book, many fishermen and campers have had a great time at this location. Just be advised it is dirtier, mustier, and more run down than the pictures show.
The owner was helpful, replied to e-mails quickly, and sent a welcome packet in the mail.
Owner's Response: We appreciate the honesty of this guest. We really try to make it clear that this is a cabin the the woods, not the Marriott. Our wifi was hacked and is now working prperly again. We will be staying at the cabin ourselves over memorial day and plan to spruce up a bit. Even so, there will still be mice and gekko's :-).
