Had such a nice time on our little romantic getaway, highly recommend this adorable cabin!
We loved staying at this cabin - it's beautiful inside and out. It was wonderful to wake up with a view of frosty, snow covered trees and the steamy duck pond. We made a little furry squirrel friend that liked to sit in the tree outside the porch and talk to us. The bed is very comfortable and it was difficult to get out of it in the morning, walking just 2 minutes to the hot prings was great motivation though. Loved our stay here and wish we could move in.
This was my fourth time staying at The Ferree Cabin at Chena Hot Springs Resort and I will continue to stay here whenever I visit. As soon as you walk inside you can tell that George and Denise have went the extra mile to ensure a relaxing and comfortable stay from the ultra plush robes to the memory foam king size bed which is easy to spend all day in cuddled up watching movies. A quick walk to all of the resorts amenities including soaking in the healing waters of the hot springs. I highly recommend treating yourself to a few nights in this quaint cabin. Thanks again for another great getaway.
We *really* enjoyed the quiet and secluded, clean and well stocked (snacks/drinking water) cabin! This is truly a gem of a place to stay when visiting Chena Hot Springs. As Arnold said "I'll be back" :-)
We loved the cabin, plenty to keep us entertained with the long nights waiting for the lights (why we were in Chena). The resort itself was a little dated, but absolutely fine for a 3 night stay with a good bar/restaurant. The hot spring itself fed a pool but was definitely needed as it was below freezing outside the entire stay. 3 nights was enough for my girlfriend and the out house - don't expect luxuries out here! There are plenty of bathrooms located inside the main buildings though. We would certainly stay here again!
When visiting Chena Hot Springs, staying at the cabin is the perfect choice! So nice and quiet, bed is soooo comfortable. They have thought of everything you may need while there. They even have water and snacks there as well. I really appreciate the fact that it is a NON smoking cabin as well. I am also allergic to it and so its nice to not have to worry about that. We will be back next year!
