A place to get away from it all
We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner, Arlene, was there to greet us after we arrived, and we were really excited to see the rustic accommodations. The original cabin was built in the 1800's, and we had everything we needed in terms of dishes, pots/pans/etc. There is no air conditioning, but we never once felt hot. We loved the sleeping cabin! So cool at night with an overhead fan. Some things you should know for sure before booking: The house is BELOW the Fire lane. You will not see it from the road. Look for the house with the blue door and #6 on the door. The cabin is directly below that house. Under no circumstances should you drive your car down the driveway to the back of the house!! Unless you have a 4-wheel drive, but even then I wouldn't do it. You will have to back out of it up a steep hill and that's nearly impossible. Regarding the steep hill - I won't lie, I am completely out of shape and nearly died every time I had to go up to the car! If you are out of shape like me and plan many outings, think twice - having said that, it's a good way to kick-start getting in shape!!! However we were in the perfect location and so relaxed, we hardly ever wanted to go anywhere. With the beautiful lake right outside the door, a paddle boat and everything we needed at the house, we were totally happy doing nothing. Out T-mobile cell service did not work, but out AT&T cell phone did. Outside the door to the porch, if a red light goes on, call the owners - it means it's time to empty the septic tank. The septic guy comes out fairly quickly and you don't need to be there for him to do his job. We had some VERY heavy rains at night, and the toilet room got a little flooded. Remember - this is not a 5-star hotel, it's a cabin on a lake. For us, a little flooding was no big deal. Also, being out in the woods, you will find millipedes on the floor. No biggie. I must say, I am a mosquito magnet and I was only bit by mosquitoes a couple of times - a near miracle, and quite frankly, enough of a reason for me to return! Everything I wrote here was not a criticism - we came home relaxed and refreshed and were very happy there! I had one of the best vacations in my life at this house, and enjoyed every minute of it. Bring your GPS - it makes life easier. And enjoy being disconnected from the world - I know we did!!! Thank you Arlene, and we hope to see you again.
