What makes this cabin unique

There is a fairly strong cell signal here and there is a 39' Hi-def TV complete with Dish-network service. Wi-FI Internet is also connected, but is on satellite service so it's suitable for email, social media, etc, but not for gaming or streaming movies due to slower speed and limited data. Some guests Bring cell serviced 'hotspot' tablet or phone and Verizon has a fairly good signal here to stream with.

We had a wonderful time here. We found it restful and healing after the passing of husband and father Irvan. We saw 2 does and 3 spotted fawns in the woods. Thanks,Sharon&Charity

Relaxing secluded location among the trees

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was such a treat and worked out great for my granddaughter's graduation. We all enjoyed the cabin and location. We even had the resident deer greet us when we arrived....a real treat for me. Everything was as described and we appreciated all the conveniences. Wish the weather had cooperated so that we could have enjoyed a much anticipated evening around the fire.

Our stay was a very positive experience. Thanks.

Awesome cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Kansas along with our daughter and family from Colorado and had four adults and 2 children that spent a week at the cabin. We were really impressed with how updated and cozy the cabin was. Karl was great to deal through email and phone calls. Would definitely stay again.

Great first visit

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great and perfect for 4 adults. We were going to a wine festival and was the perfect place to retreat to afterwards. I wish we would have been able to stay longer and enjoy the fire pit and river! If we have to come back to area I think we would stay here again.
