Joe and I where so excited to find such a rare and spectacular piece of property. We felt that we wanted to share it with others so that they may find healing and peace in such tranquil rare settings. Since then we have had many proposals, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, retirement celebrations and above all those seeking healing.
The joy that it has brought to our lives is indescribable and the connections we have made with others is unforgettable.
Owner purchased this cabin in 2009
Beautiful , Scenic and private. A rare opportunity to disconnect from our chaotic lifestyles.
Secluded but yet close to all attractions, river, lakes, skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, restaurants, groceries and shopping.
This property was amazing! Very well kept and adorably decorated! Perfect getaway for two! Peaceful! There was a book that gave you so much information and things to do! I would love to come back to this property!
The house was so clean and had a beautiful decor. The site alone looking out the window made my stay well worth it!!! You could see the mountains from sitting on the couch relaxing drinking a cup of coffee. It was so peaceful and exactly what I needed. I definitely would go back, I loved the country/mountain feel.
Love this place!! Beautiful mountain view, large well kept yard, walking trails on site, cabin is very clean & welcoming, amazing view of stars on clear nights. It was very hard to say goodbye!
Our stay at this cabin was wonderful! The cabin is clean and in great condition. Much of it appears to be new. There is a lot of private space, which is well kept by the owner. We spent days relaxing on the porch, soaking in the hot tub, enjoying nights by the fire, or just enjoying the gorgeous view! This property is pretty far out there - so don't expect much from the local towns - but this is exactly why we liked this place. In a short drive you can access great state parks and hiking trails. The owner has provided a nice book containing tons of information about these parks and trails which is really helpful. Although the listing says you will not have cellphone access, both by wife and I (AT&T and T-Mobile) had 4G access the entire time.
We even got to see a black bear! This was exciting and a little scary. There are well kept trails around the property but after seeing the bear we decided to stay away from those.
Overall we absolutely loved our stay and would book this place again. One thing to note - the owner is VERY particular about how you should use this property. There is a long contract to read and sign before using the property, and a page of rules to read and follow upon arrival. In addition, there are little notes posted about the property with instructions on what to do and not to do. In general this was not obtrusive, and I can understand if the owner has had some bad experiences in the past. The property is in immaculate condition and the owner would like to keep it that was. In a few cases this is brought to the extreme and actual limits the use of the property. For example - the owner will not allow you to fully remove the hot tub cover (it is locked in place) which is awkward and annoying. That being said, this is a minor gripe for what is a highly recommend and relaxing experience!
I spent 25 minutes writing a long, detailed, review of this property just to have the HomeAway website crash and lose it all so I'll just list the pros and one con.
+ Property is meticulously maintained
+ Almost everything is new or like new
+ Amazing mountain views
+ A true, no light pollution, night sky offering incredible stargazing
+ Owner provides a book with joust about everything you need to know
+ Things to bring, a blanket, binoculars, telescope, food to cook there, and TONS of bug spray and citronella candles
+ Comfortable bed
+ Complete privacy and quiet setting (minus natures sounds of course)
+ Great hosts that want to ensure you enjoy your stay but don't bother you during it (I've had owners "stop by" other vacation properties in the past)
+ Cool nights for sleeping and a nearby lake for swimming to cool off
+ Fire pit (pickup wood on your way at Shaws)
+ Relaxing hot tub
- The one con, and I hate to even mention it, is you can only remove the hot tub cover half way which makes it a bit awkward and only one person can enjoy the mountain views at a time. I'm assuming they must have had some problems in the past and that's why they have the limitation.
If you're looking to get away and disconnect from the world without giving up the comforts of home this is the place to do it. Brenda and Joe were great hosts and really strive to ensure you enjoy your time there.
This cabin is a great place for a vacation for people who want to get away from everyone and everything. Super cute, and cozy with a beautiful view of the mountains and some black bears. The bears are always in sight so we can observe them but far away enough not to scare us and they always keep to themselves. No need to worry about them wandering too close to the cabin. It's a wonderful place to relax and spend quality time with the people you love.
