Best weekend I can kinda sorta remember

We rented this cabin with 7 people to celebrate a pre-baby bachelor party. During the first day there was also a divorce announcement and the rest of the weekend is really fuzzy. However, I will try to write a review to the best of my memory.
The cabin itself is pretty great. Once you get through the front door you see the entire first level is living room/dining room/kitchen/bathroom with a guest room off to the side. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom, and downstairs is a sweet game room with a pull out bed. So there are 5 beds, 1 pull out, and another couch to pass out on. In total about 16 people can sleep here if you get nice and comfy with each other.
The hot tub is in a screened in porch, so if you're renting this place in the winter you can run around in the snow and then hop back into the hot water. Just be careful if you're doing somersaults because trees come out of nowhere and then your foot hurts for a month afterwards. Also, apparently the screen doesn't do a good job of blocking sound because occasionally a nosy neighbor will come over. This neighbor will refuse a drink and will not take kindly to threats. But he will only bother you once if you scurry inside.
Inside, the basement has a poker table, a pool table, a nonfunctioning arcade and a big TV. More importantly it has very slippery stairs that you can do ninja warrior training on.
My one complaint has to be the fireplace. Not with the fireplace specifically but with Andrew who couldn't start a fire to save his life. I mean he managed to refill the hot tub using the kitchen faucet, so you would think he could start a fire, but no. One of us would have helped him, but he wasn't wearing pants and we didn't want to get too close, ya know? Like all weekend he refused to put pants on.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need except for booze, and actual food. The closest liquor store is not walking distance away, so keep that in mind. Also, the freezer holds exactly enough ice for 1 nights worth of margaritas for 7 people.
Finally, the roof looks like it would make a good sledding slope, but we didn't figure out how to get up there safely. Maybe next time.
