My wife and I stayed at this cabin in the middle of July, and we were extremely pleased with our stay. We will definitely return should we want to "get away" to central Utah again. We are relatively new to Salt Lake City (from Michigan), and it was a pleasant drive to Sterling (2 hours). While there we were able to relax and re-charge from our normally busy schedules. The cabin was well kept, clean, and as-advertised in the photos. The sleeping quarters were all located downstairs, with 2 beds and a set of bunks, and the air conditioning made for very comfortable sleeping despite the summer heat. There was a TV and DVD player, though we never turned them on, though we did read on the comfortable couches. The kitchenette was stocked with cookware, silverware, burners, and glasses, and the front porch had two nice rocking chairs to catch the sunset. We also used the grill on the back patio for most dinners. The back yard contained a fire pit, along with stocked firewood, so our evenings were spent star-gazing at the fire for several hours; although there were some other homes nearby, when the sun went down there was so little light pollution in the area that the stars were like nothing we'd ever seen.
The cabin is very closely located to a great golf course (very inexpensive compared to SLC, with Amazing views), and there is Pallisades State Park right nearby with fishing and swimming options for kids. We happened to rent an ATV from in town while we were there, which was also really fun.
Sterling is very small, so trips for anything usually meant driving 5 miles to Manti. The only slight downside, which is not a reflection of the cabin but the nearby area, is that there was NOTHING open (grocery stores, most gas stations) on a Sunday in either Sterling or Manti, so we had to get creative for dinner one night; however, better preparation would have solved that easily.
This is a new rental property, which is why there are so few reviews. The owners were very nice and super accommodating; while they lived nearby, we never felt that the proximity impinged on our enjoyment. The owners clearly went out of their way to make us feel at home, starting with a gift-basket on arrival, and including additional snacks and restocked firewood upon returning from a trip.
Even though it’s been a couple months between our stay and this writing, my wife and I keep mentioning how nice everything was. We certainly want to rent this cabin again next summer!
