This was our families first experience renting a home for a vacation. It was wonderful. The owner was great to work with both before and during our stay. I had some questions and he responded promptly.
Wildlife - this cabin has beautiful big windows and patios all around the house. We saw deer, squirrel, bluejays, a rabbit, and chipmunk, at the cabin site - before we left for our 'nature walk'.
Activities - we went to the Grand Canyon one day, some of our party went to see the stars at the Lowell Observatory, and some of us did the Flagstaff Extreme ropes course. All of it was a lot of fun. But even if we hadn't done any of those things we would have had a great time just being at the cabin.
Our grandsons loved playing in the small gable room upstairs with a Thomas the tank engine trainset and playing on the swingset out back. We brought up some of our families favorite games and DVDs. But there were lots of games already at the cabin in their gameroom, and the ping-pong table was a big hit.
This cabin in the woods was perfect for our family. With our children, their spouses, and our grandchildren, we had 10 adults, two 4yr old boys, and two infant girls. With a group this size, having enough bathrooms, beds, and space is important. There was plenty of room for everyone, and lots of fun activities. While the decorations were kind of kitchy, that was just right for our family, it added to the family reunion feel of this wonderful cabin in the woods.
