This is the perfect rental for group get aways. The minute you walk in you know it was built with love and care. It is spacious and cozy and you will feel right at home. The fireplace is awesome with a gas starter for a log buring fire. You can cross country ski right out the front door and over to Crystal. Our group was there for a ski weekend, but plan to return in the summer for biking and kayaking. I highly recommend this home away from home!

Great experience moments away from Crystal Mtn

  • 5 of 5

You really couldn’t be much closer to Crystal without being on the property itself. It was a very short drive to the ski slopes, which was the primary reason for our stay. The property was as described and we found it to be clean, cozy, and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the wood fireplace. The kitchen had all the essentials. There were more than enough beds to accommodate a group much larger than us (we only had three people). The decor was spot on for the setting. We would gladly stay again!

Loved all of it! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is even more beautiful and cozy than the photos. Every inch of it has special woodsy touches. It was really hard to leave and go skiing! We couldn't wait to get back and cozy up by that awesome fireplace. We will be back!

This cabin was perfect for our Crystal ski weekend. Very close and convenient, and the place is everything we hoped for in an up north cabin.

It was wonderful

This is a great, cozy cabin located in a beautiful woodsy setting on the river. I would definitely stay here again! It has everything you need - including board games. It is only 1 mile from Crystal Mountain, so super easy to ski or snowshoe.
