What makes this Cabin unique
I'm an avid fly fisher, my wife loves to golf, and my daughters never tire from wakeboarding so my whole family stays happy when we visit Slice of Heaven.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
It would have been nice if the bedding was made before we arrived
I am glad you all had a good time. This is a good reminder to all that you are coming to a "lakefront cabin in the woods" where you have to do some things for yourselves such as light you own campfire. While we do provide all the bed linens for you, we have you make the beds to keep the cleaning costs down. Slice of Heaven has 14 mattresses. Imagine the cost of making up 14 typical 14 hotel rooms.
The house was exactly what we needed for our large family reunion. We were all amazed at the beauty of the cabin! We loved having different levels for us all to spread out. Loved the view. Plenty of space and it was wonderful having two kitchens! Only a few negatives that can easily be fixed. First, we were dealing with wasps inside the cabin on the top floor. We never figured out where they were comong from, but there is a nest in the windows/walls somewhere. A couple things need fixing: master bedroom door on 2nd floor (the one with the bathroom) - door sticks and doesn't lock. One of the blinds on the top floor needs to be fixed as it can't be pulled up. Overall, it was an amazing place and we would love to come back!
Great Family get away
We had a great time. John was very easy to work with and very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay
This place was beautiful! It was the perfect view and tons of space.
Slice of Heaven was wonderful!
John was very responsive to our question(s). The house was wonderful! A few things need fixed/replaced but the overall stay was great. We had one incident that the gate code was changed (break-in in one of the homes) and we had to wait a few hours before getting the new code. I loved the "security" of the gated community. The driving directions were spot on! Very helpful and correct down to the last turn! I can say our "First Cousin's Trip" was a success! Thanks for your hospitality John! I would definitely stay here again.
The cabin is beautiful, extremely spacious, and overall accomodating. The view is spectacular. My immediate family had the entire second level that included: 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, kitchen and balcony. Each floor was equipped similarly. The only issues were there's absolutely no cell service in the area, the nearby cabins are too close--compromising privacy, and the original requirement to make our own beds upon arrival. I was exhausted and felt that the expectation was unacceptable. After informing John about my displeasure with this, he sent someone over to make all 14 beds. I was very very appreciative. So as long as I can enter the cabin without having to make 14 beds, I'd rent it again.
Slice of Heaven is a simple 5 minute drive from Downtown LaFollette (groceries, medical, restaurants, etc). Short drive to massive off road area.
