Beautiful, quiet mountain hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Jeff's cabin was absolutely wonderful. We were blown away at the location - amazing mountain views with the added (huge) bonus of the nearby river. The drive up the first time was intimidating as the road is a bit steep, but even our minivan managed without issue. We had 3 couples, two children, two babies and dogs very comfortably settled during our stay. We found the cabin to be clean and extremely well stocked. Other than getting food, we didn't need a thing (there was even a pretty impressive supply of herbs, oil, etc). The grocery store was 10 minutes away and fantastic. There was plenty of firewood available as well. I'm not sure I've stayed in a more well-equipped cabin before. Jeff has truly thought of everything to make your stay comfortable.

We loved the beautiful porch with rockers and hammock. The porch is gated which is AMAZING when you have small children (and dogs). There are a lot of steps to the river, so we took down what we would need, but it was well worth the trip. That river is a little piece of Heaven, so beautiful. We fished and our dogs swam. I loved that there were chairs near the bottom (rather than having to drag them down and back up).

We had a wonderful time and we plan to return some day. Our children had so much fun and loved it so much, they cried when we left. It really was just so awesome! Thank you, Jeff, for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

Everything was nice besides the doors! We spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to lock the doors, especially the ones that you enter in and out of. The two bedroom doors up top did not lock at all and neither did the bathroom on the main floor. One room had dog hairs on the sheets. Overall the property was beautiful and we really enjoyed our stay!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was amazing! The house is beautiful and very clean. Jeff had everything ready to go when we got there. It is very well stocked and the few groceries we needed we got at the grocery store right down the road. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet and is close to a lot of fun stuff! I would definitely stay here again!
