Very Kid Friendly
We stayed for 10 days in this delightful "cabin" in the canyon. We had two of our grandchildren with us (ages 3 and 7) for all of that time, and our other four for a day or so. All the children found the house to be just what they needed and wanted. The fun play areas outside made for great "kid play." We made any number of sand foods, using sand and imagination, of course, and there were plenty of outside toys for the the kids. The swings, glider, slides, sand area, and play house created wonderful imaginary games and situations. Inside, the little "alcove" sleep areas for the two grandchildren made sleep time easy. Creative night lights, stars on the ceilings, comfy beds, etc, plus some new books to read helped the kids feel comfortable in the new surroundings. And they couldn't get enough of the swing. Each grandchild had to have a final swing before they left. My seven year-old put it this way. "This isn't a cabin! It's a mansion!" The creative use of space to provide a play area set aside for the children while being easy to monitor by parents, and the toys in that area helped everyone just relax and have a good time. It was secluded and woodsy, even though it is very close to groceries and other shopping needs. Our little ones really enjoyed hiking up the canyon and taking advantage of the Logan Acquatic Center, which has a wonderful pool for smaller and larger children at a very reasonable price. The only problem we ran into was that it was very hot in Cache Valley while we were there, so it was hard to keep the house cool. It did cool down in the evenings, but perhaps another box fan would help. We put the box fan in the play area, so that the alcove bedrooms would cool down. The children were very hot--and being from Alaska, they weren't used to heat. The owners were very accomodating and helpful, and the cooking utensils were adequate, though we would have enjoyed a muffin pan. But for the price this was an excellent value and we really had a wonderful time during our stay. Thanks so very much to the owners!!
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Thank you for the excellent review. We hope you come again. We have now added 3 more box fans for those times it does not cool off at night. We wish you would have given us heads up earlier and we would have delivered them immediately. It has been hotter at night than normal. Usually we can count on it dropping below 60 at night which cools everything down. We have also put in some muffin tins. We want to be sure that everyone has a great experience, so if you do come again and have needs, then give us a call and we can respond much quicker.
