We bought this property because it had many qualities that I knew would make it a great get-away. First is location. There are no other homes in sight. The closest in one direction is over 1/4 mile and in the other direction over one mile. Too many vacation get-aways are jammed up together and offer no privacy or peace. Another attractive is how cozy the cabin is. It's an A-frame and not a sprawling mega-house with no personality.
This property should be specially attractive to guests because it's directly handled by the owners. We want our guests to have the same quality vacation we expect when we travel. We encourage and welcome our guests to call us at any time while staying here if they have any issues or need any information about the area. Since, cell phone service is limited in the area of the cabin we welcome guests to give family members our home and cell numbers in case family members need to contact them in an emergency and we will gladly go and relay the message.
What a wonderful pleasure! Beautiful scenery, away from it all, quiet, quaint and sleepily nestled into the woods. A big beautiful jacuzzi and plenty of space packed in a small cabin. My wife and I plan on visiting again soon! Thank you!
Had a great time at the cabin! Not only did we appreciate the low cost (especially with a hot tub and satellite tv!), but it was extremely cozy and homey. Working with Michael and Patricia was easy and they were extremely accommodating! We had asked to check in early, which they were able to do. Highly recommend and we will definitely be back!
The cabin was clean and cozy. Enjoyed the outdoors around, small flowing creek in front is very relaxing. Owners are very friendly and arrangements were easy. Would recommend to anyone.
This house is perfectly tucked away and was a great spot for our Christmas getaway. Love the hot tub, deck, green scenery, and other amenities. We will be back!
It was love at first site! The cottage is warm and cozy, off the beaten path , and perfect for anyone wanting to get a way without breaking the bank. I love the back top deck, it is a beautiful extension to the living area. The kitchen had everything we needed and we cooked delicious food throughout our stay. The beds, and house in general were clean and welcoming, setting an environment perfect for relaxation. There were five of us and we made this place our own for two days...we cooked, sang, danced and talked the days and nights away. The hot tub and deck were an extra bonus! We had the best time ending both nights out there, and even got to see the first snow flurries which was beautiful. The owners Mike and Patricia really have something special here. They are kind and offer the best deal I have come around in the area. I plan on making this the first of many stays. Note: Although, us girls had a great time climbing up and down the spiral staircase, it may not be as easy for some. I do not think this would even be an issue, expect for the only bathroom is located on the second floor. Other than that, I cant think of a single negative. We loved it!
My husband and I stayed here for our Honeymoon! The cabin was clean and well-maintained. The owners seemed very kind, and even accommodated us checking-in a few hours early. The location is nice- well away from busy roads, houses, etc.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back!
