Peace In Nature

  • 5 of 5

We had a amazing stay at this cabin. The Cabin was perfect! From the open floor plan to the amazing mornings and evenings sitting on the deck watching the deer feed on the river bank. We had a trip with (2) couples to Flyfish. We had a amazing 1st day walking the banks wade fishing. The next 2 days were guided float trips. The guides picked us up at the house and we floated the West Fork. GREAT fishing! Beautiful scenery and peaceful surroundings. I would definitely recommend this cabin and would love to stay here again.

Excellent. Everything about it from Patty to the deck overlooking the river and how nice the rooms are! 12/10 would book again. In fact if the caretaker job is ever up, send me an email and I'll retire to here!!!!
