A Beautiful Cabin in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5

Reach the Heavens Cabin is a very beautifully furnished and welcoming place to stay. The pictures provided are exactly what you will find when you arrive. The cabin is very clean and well-maintained. The newer type night lights, which I brought, would be helpful for anyone who does not like a Very Dark house at night. I had a question after arriving and called Maritza, which she promptly answered, and even the caretaker, Chad, called to answer my questions. I would highly recommend Reach the Heavens Cabin as a place to stay at. The last section of road to the cabin is gravel and steep at a couple of places. The best part is that the cabin is not far from the main highway, but far enough not to hear the traffic. My boyfriend and I were there for four nights as a birthday getaway for myself. We went out two of the days and visited the surrounding areas. The other days we stayed in and relaxed and enjoyed the gorgeous views out the windows of the cabin. We saw dear and turkeys each morning.

Peaceful and secluded

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were looking for a cabin that was secluded and had a nice view of the mountains, and this one was perfect. Everything was clean and welcoming, and we loved listening to/watching the wildlife as we had our coffee on the porch every morning. It looks like some land is being cleared in an adjacent property, ostensibly for another cabin, which would be a shame because we loved that we couldn't see or hear any other people while we were there. We had a very peaceful and comfortable stay!

Just what we were looking for!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love the cabin, the location was great, it had a little bit of everything because even when is in the mountain, it is also close to town, where is easy to find groceries, movies to rent, gas, etc. the cabin is beautiful and the attention of the owners and his assistance on town is great. Highly recommended. !!! Thank you.

Beautiful landscape and cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cabin. The views are spectacular right from the front porch. The wild life roaming free. Just sit back and watch outside on inside. There are large windows all around the cabin so you can see the woods and mountain views and watch the wildlife. Very quiet and peaceful. The cabin is very attractive and cozy with lots of room. We would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to get away from it all.

Beautiful and remote house

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Reach the Heavens was wonderful! The house was in great condition even though the location was far away from our hiking trails. It was so serene with deer and turkeys visiting daily. The cooler weather and relaxing atmosphere made for a perfect fall getaway. Our one and only question was promptly answered.
