The cabin is so nice and clean, it smells wonderful too! The view from the living room window is just amazing! Not to mention the views from the hot tub which over looks the pond. My son got to pick a pumpkin from the patch right next to the house and had a ball feeding the ducks! This is perfect to get away as a couple or to bring the kids. We will absolutely be back next year!

Beautiful and so quiet!

  • 5 of 5

The property was so beautiful and the cabin was so perfect for us! My boys enjoyed fishing at the pond and having some room to roam. The owners are so nice. They went above and beyond. Our next visit we will defiantly stay at this cabin again.

Gorgeous setting, very private

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time at Laura's cabin. Fresh eggs every morning (even in winter)! We really enjoyed the property, especially the hot tub and fire pit! Location couldn't have been better; a quick jaunt to Deep Creek with grocery store, liquor store, restaurants, and bars but far enough removed you could feel totally isolated. Will no doubt be back to one of her properties!

Country charm, indeed!

  • 5 of 5

The thing that drew me to this property was the fact that she has animals on the property and I knew my boys (ages 10 & 12) would love that and I was correct. Before we arrived, Laura called and said a skunk sprayed and offered to let us stay in another property but we declined because the smell wasn't that bad. That was very nice of her to even offer that. When we arrived, it was really late so Friday night we just sat and watched movies. Saturday was the big day. We had a lot of things planned in a short amount of time, and we accomplished them all. We fished, walked around the property, dipped in the hot tub, had a fire going for hot dogs and marshmallows, and enjoyed the animals, especially Midnight (or as we called his Morse for miniature horse). We even had time to drive to Deep Creek for lunch at the Black Bear. Laura, the owner, was beyond friendly. She came over twice and talked to us and made sure we had directions to where ever we wanted to go. She fed the animals while we were there and the boys helped brush Midnight (which they absolutely loved). She also let us let the chickens out on Sunday which made us feel like we were farm hands. She also let us go see her other property that is right up on the top of a mountain, Mystic Mountain, which has a stunning view and we are already making plans to go back when it gets colder. The house was well equipped but just remember to bring food with you because who would want to leave this beautiful place to go grocery shopping. I highly recommend this place or any of her other places. She has another home next to this one so if someone had a larger party maybe both places could accommodate. I HIGHLY recommend her places! You want to go to a place where the owner makes you feel as if you are at home and this was that place.
