We made some wonderful memories this last week at the cabin. Everything you could need was there - hot tub, pool table, tubes and even rods for cooking hot dogs and marshmallows. It rained just a little every day but we so loved sitting on the deck watching it. The children played in the river, watched the trains and generally just enjoyed each others company since we were all unplugged from our cell phones.

Thank you so much for sharing this cabin with our family. We will be back!

Very cozy but needs some attention.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is delightful. It is very cozy and we felt at home, immediately. We found nearly everything we needed and loved the porch and fireplace. It sits on a beautiful and quiet perch, surrounded by trees and the sounds of the river below. While we found nearly everything we needed a few updates and some extra housekeeping would have made our stay a perfect "five star". The mattresses sag and badly need replacing, as do the bed linens, pillows and towels. Both shower curtains were full of mold and the bath towels smelled of mildew. We had very weak water pressure which made bathing and cleaning dishes a chore.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we stay fully booked from May through the summer and do replace our linens , towels and shower curtains at the end of the season, I will make sure we do this twice a year moving forward. I wish you had let us know about the water pressure that could have been an easy fix. Can you contact me about the bed, I would like to know which one to replace. Most of our reviews are 5 star and 75% of our rentals are return guest. We take great pride in our home and will make sure to address your concerns.

Beautiful house and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I & sister and her husband had a great time, we cooked every night and enjoyed sitting out on the deck having dinner, watching the hummingbirds, and deer. The house was clean and the kitchen was well equipped, the only thing we had to buy was a blender for our frozen drinks. We had a great time exploring Burnsville, we enjoyed seeing Robin Hood at the play house, and shopping at the quaint shops. Tubing down the toe river is highly recommended. The house is pet friendly, our great dane had a great time too.

Thank you for sharing you house with us, we'll be back!
