If you are reading this review because you are considering renting this cabin, stop considering right now and just do it.
The pictures on this site do not give the cabin justice. This cabin is absolutely beautiful and incredibly comfortable. It gives the saying "home away from home" a new meaning.
After an almost nightmarish trip to the Outer Banks last fall, my husband and I were a bit comprehensive about going away on a honeymoon, but I am very glad we did. Our experience with this cabin was completely different, and all around wonderful. The owner, Anna, was more than accommodating. We were unwilling to travel anywhere without our pets, and having a pit bull and a cat, it isn't particularly easy to find a place that will allow either, let alone both, but Anna was perfectly fine with it from the start, and truly went above and beyond, providing an extra water bowl, towels, and even some treats for our dog, and offering to get us anything we needed for our cat.
If you are planning on travelling with your pets, this is a perfect place to do so. The yard was more than big enough for our dog to get in her daily exercise, and our cat especially loved the big, numerous windows and the loft.
The only downside to this cabin is that it's so comfortable and serene, it almost makes it hard to want to leave and explore the town, which is breathtaking. We were there for five days and didn't get to do everything we wanted, there was so much. Every restaurant we went to in town was delicious and reasonably priced, especially the Gathering Grounds, which Anna suggested to us.
My husband and I are already contemplating a return trip for our first anniversary, and would love to stay in this cabin again. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful but fun-filled trip, and that five days simply did not feel like enough time.
