We rented the cabin for labor day weekend while we were attending a wedding in Carmel Valley. Our stay was much too short! The atmosphere of the cabin is GREAT, its like stepping back in time but with all the modern conveniences. The dual sided fireplace is amazing and the centerpiece of the home, we used it a lot, and there was plenty of firewood and kindling to not worry about running out. There was plenty of room for the 5 adults in my family, water pressure was fine, we even used both showers at the same time, having a full size washer and dryer was a blessing also. The heated tile floors were great on the one chilly morning we had, the kitchen was well stocked, with pot, pans, dishes, cutting boards, platters, knives and other items, the stove and oven works perfectly. I really wanted to bake a pie from scratch but ran out of time, apple pie cooling in the window sill would have been picture perfect. The pool table was a big hit as well as the Victrola, there was a decent selection of old jazz albums that made the atmosphere that much better. We had a great time having a BBQ and an evening of s'mores out back using the grill and the outdoor fireplace. It was a night to remember. I have Sprint as my cell provider and coverage was spotty but there is wifi with decent speeds plus a land line phone. The caretakers Ben and Laurie were very attentive when needed, even though the had family from out of town visiting they responded to my every question very promptly, night or day, even thought they live right next door there is a big fence and a large garage/out building between them and the cabin so you don't even see their home. They even had all of the fireplaces and woodstoves loaded with wood and paper, ready to light when we got there. The hot tub worked great and Ben and Laurie had it already heated when we got there, it would great to use it in the evening for some star gazing. The driveway back to the cabin is pretty much a trail, I am sure no one figures it out the first time, but I drove my loaded Chrysler 300 back to the cabin with no issues, might be a little tough if you are a city folk and its raining but I am sure Ben would be there to help you out. I really can't say enough about this place, I am sure, you will fall in love with it as we did. I am just looking for an excuse to come back, I think I would like to try it in the winter with the creek running and a real excuse to used the fireplace and woodstove. 10/10!!
