Why Dan chose Apple River

My family and I built this cabin by hand over several years. As such, this cabin is everything we wanted in a vacation home. We love the woods, and we love the lake. We have two young children as well as nieces and nephews that adore 'Uncle Dan's Cabin'. We have 'Cabin Rules' and 'Home Rules'. 'Cabin Rules' pretty much mean kids are free to explore and do what they wish within reason. Kids have poked at a smoldering fire for hours and conjured up delivery systems using the zip line. We don't have a TV at the cabin nor do we plan on getting one. What we do have are plenty of board games, puzzles, darts, BB guns, paintball guns, bugs, frogs, a telescope, and of course sticks.....lots and lots of sticks.

Great weekend!

  • of 5
Cabin was absolutely lovely, very well stocked and set up. Kitchen had all the essentials, bedrooms and bathrooms had everything needed. Plenty of room for everyone , night or day. The balcony was open to the great woodsy atmosphere, and the firepit was indeed well supplied with wood. The zipline was a lot of fun and we had a wonderful time that we hope to repeat someday. Well recommended.

Wedding Stay Weekend

  • 5 of 5
House was great. Better than hotel for 4 days. Sat on the deck and walked the path to the creek. Was beautiful. Deer & wood peckers in the back woods of the lot. Sitting outside for early morning coffee was the best and most relaxing actually seeing and hearing the noises of nature. I would recommend to anyone who needs to get away. The owner was great also for a last minute change with a pet being allowed. We thank him for everything.

Average Stay

In general, the rental was what I had expected. I was disappointed in a couple of things. One was that on the surface, it looked clean. As we settled in, there were signs that it needed a deeper cleaning (cobwebs in windows, floors weren't spotless, upstairs toilet had a ring that needed to be cleaned, etc.). As far as how well appointed it was, the only thing that seemed to be missing was some patio or lounge chairs on the deck. The picnic table was nice but it wasn't conducive to sitting and relaxing.

Owner's Response: Marcia,

We are so sorry about not meeting your expectations for your stay. I too demand a clean environment when traveling.

As a result of your review, we have had a discussion with our service providers at the cabin and come up with an action plan to address your concerns along with trying to mitigate future lapses in standards. Over the next few months we will be replacing the couch, dishes, glasses, and area rugs. We will also be adding a large floor rug in the dining area.

We have also ordered a 3 day, top to bottom thorough cleaning of the cabin this week. We have also funded your cleaning fee, plus a small token which we hope you will accept with our sincerest apologies.

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed 3 days at the cabin and could not have asked for more perfect place! The cabin was clean and inviting and had everything we needed! Our kids especially liked going up through the trap door above the bunk bed ;). This cabin has a beautiful setting in the woods…we loved sitting out on the deck and also down by the fire each night! We also enjoyed a beautiful day on the lake which was just minutes away.Thank you Dan for letting us stay at your home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Apple Canyon/Galena and will definitely come back again.

An amazing place! Everything about the experience was 5 star. The house was beautiful, slept 11 guys (including two on the couch), the kitchen was great, the bathrooms were great, the bedrooms were great--- everything was great! They had the laundry room stocked with detergent and dryer sheets, the kitchen had some coffee, the freezer has an ice maker, there were a million clean towels... The list goes on. The outside grounds were amazing-- great "woodsy" feeling, awesome fire pit (house was STOCKED with wood), swing was very fun, zip line was awesome, deck with grill was fantastic. This place was awesome. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a getaway to the woods.

Peaceful

  • of 5
The cabin is beautiful! It is the perfect place to unwind, relax and recharge. Every comfort has been considered! It was nice to spend time together without TV...we hadn't realized how accustomed to internet access we have become for personal communication, directions and basic information. It was a "slice of the '90s for the kids!"
