Some pros and cons

  • 3 of 5

Cabin met expectations for the most part. The cabin is tucked back from the road so it feels very secluded and surrounded by trees. The 8 acres it is on is rather narrow, so you quickly reach the fences on either side with very little walking, so it wasn't as great for my kids to explore as I was hoping, but still nice scenery.

PROS:

- Plenty of towels and blankets provided. And towels were nice :)

- While there's no central heating, space heaters provided did the job just fine.

- The 2-chair swing outside was awesome! Very relaxing for adults, and our kids had a blast on it as well!

- No bugs in the house! even though the woods had plenty of them as you'd expect, especially little spiders.

- There are lots of fun board games provided at the cabin.

- Cabin is just 2min away from "Yesterland," a fun little amusement park we happened to discover in passing. We decided to spend half a day there and the kids loved it!

- The bathroom was recently remodeled and looks nice.

- Cabin was very clean on arrival.

CONS:

- Owner says that firewood is provided for the fire ring out back, which we were excited to use, but all that was there was a long row of wet and extremely soft and rotten wood, which had obviously been the bottom of the pile for several years. None of it was usable at all, so we had to make a trip into town and drive to a couple different stores to find firewood.

- There are some very large wasps that make their home on the outside of the cabin, but they only came out for the warmest part of the afternoon, so they didn't bother us too much.

- There were some DIY problems the bathroom remodel. Shower door hangs crooked so doesn't close all the way, but that's ok. The bigger problem is that faucet handle that controls the shower isn't attached. It fell off as soon as I barely tried to turn it. So then I had to struggle for awhile trying to jam the thing back on and get it to actually turn and control temperature which was tricky.

- Remote for the Bluray player downstairs doesn't work. Opened it and saw the batteries were corroded so I put some of our own working batteries in from our flashlight and it still didn't work.

- Kitchen appliances smaller than expected--fridge was a mini fridge, oven was mini, microwave tiny.

- No dining table.

- Guard rails on stairs and overlooking the kitchen from upstairs are not at all up to spec. An adult could easily squeeze between the bars, making it super hazardous for our toddler.

- Poor cell reception.

Escape into the Woods

  • 4 of 5

We wanted a chance for retreat and my wife wanted East Texas trees, solitude, and a cozy cabin. This was exactly that. Secluded behind a winding lane in the hardwoods, this place really was accurate to the description, had all the basic amenities, was clean and well maintained. The window unit air conditioning was a little pressed on the very hot afternoon, but everything else was precisely what we needed. The firepit out back made for a great evening under the stars and the "Sunset Swing" was an unexpected paradise. We visited "Buttermilk's" cafe on the Canton square and discovered Pecan Cobbler! For anyone wanted to get away from it all, this is the place!

Wonderful

It was the perfect place for us to stay. We would definitely stay here again if we were back to Canton. Very clean, set back in the woods, and close to town. We loved it!
