The cabin is in a good location, secluded but still close enough to activities and attractions. If you are unfamiliar with mountain roads like we were, I would definitely suggest arriving when it is still light outside. We had our GPS and it was still a little tough to navigate arriving in the late afternoon. We were disappointed with the view, we were not able to see the mountains really at all. I guess we would need to visit in the fall when the trees have less leaves on them. The cabin was nicely decorated although the closet and storage space was a little limited even for only 2 adults and our 3 year old son (we stayed for 5 nights so we had 1 suitcase each and a couple small dufflebags with toiletries, etc). Our main issues...We had a problem with ants in the kitchen so some of our food was wasted, also we lost power in a storm on our third night there, which would have been fine if it wasn't for our little guy. He handled it ok but it would have been nice if there were some flashlights in the cabin or oil in the lanterns on the mantle so we could have used them. Luckily, we had a couple flashlights in our vehicle. We did call the owner and used our phone to find the number for the electric company and called to report the outage. I think it would be helpful to have a list of contact numbers maybe on the fridge just for those instances, especially when it's late at night. The tv loses signal pretty frequently so I would suggest bringing a few movies for hanging out in the cabin.. I think there was supposed to be a movie collection but we didn't find it. There were some nice games and a few books though. The washer and dryer were a nice touch and helped throughout the week. The hot tub was also nice, very relaxing at the end of the day. We dd not want to come home, it was such a beautiful area and we will definitely be back! Not sure that we would stay here again, though, would likely go for a place that has a bit more space and a few more amenities.
