We just returned from 7 days at A Lil Slice of Heaven. It was everything we were looking for and I recommend it to anyone that wants to get away from it all and unwind. The cabin had all the amenities we needed and if you need to connect to the world there is WiFi to give you that access. Our goal was to disconnect, so we limited our access to what and when we needed it. The Johnson's were available to answer the few questions we had so I am totally satisfied with our stay. It is off the beaten path so be sure that is your desire, but it was beautiful and the Toe river out the back door was a pleasure and we enjoyed tons of fishing and tubing from the bridge down to the cabin many times, it was a blast. A 30 minute drive to town was a fun time, we did it numerous times. We look forward to our next visit to Gods Country so I give this it a thumbs up! :)
Thank you for visiting our Lil Slice a Heaven. Come back and see us again anytime!
Put us in a great adventure but would not recommend
We visited the cabin with our 2 children (age 10 and 5). I do wish it was clearer that you not just off the beaten path, you are off the beaten path for 15 minutes with white knuckles. We got up early to enjoy our family vacation to find out that check in isn't till 3. I do wish it was clearer. I do feel the owner reached out to check us out but after that, he seemed frustrated that I called to even explain the key was not there.
The hot tub is very dirty and would not turn off. The beds were very uncomfortable and the mattresses seemed very old and dirty.
We could not get much to work from the TV, stereo, fire place (house fills with smoke), etc.
At the end of the day, you could see the love that was in the home at some point, but I can't recommend staying there. It is very inconvenient and not much of the luxuries you feel you are paying for do not work.
Candice, I am really surprised at your review! I wish you had reached out with any concerns, they are easily resolved . Off the beeten path is why you rent our cabin. I had communicated with you several times and had forwarded directions that specifically show The distance to the cabin.The check in instructions specifically state check in is at 4:00, however our house keeper was nice enough to allow you to check in while she was cleaning. All of the beds are less than a year old, the spa runs until it hits the tempature you set it to, and the extra large fireplace will not smoke in the house when starting if you have flames and push it back a bit. We have all 5 star reviews in the past, now with one acceptation. We pride ourselves with offering a wonderful space full of amenities and love sharing with people that want to disconnect. I am sorry your stay was not what you were expecting, good luck in your future endevors.
Had a wonderful stay!
Wonderful place to really get away. Fantastic river views & loved hearing the train come by.
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!
I had the most delightful personal solo retreat at lil' slice a heaven. Everything about this cabin is heavenly! I'm looking forward to returning to this mountain oasis and sharing it with friends and family! You won't be dissappointed! Thank you, Clark and MaryKay for all the love and Goodness you've invested into this special abode!
Very cozy but needs some attention.
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.
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.
