Why Lynn Thomas chose Wautoma

This cabin was the perfect place to get away from the city. It gave my family the opportunity to sit back and relax. It is a great place to get together with family and friends.

What makes this cabin unique

This is our personal cabin we have remodeled and decorated over the past 7 years. This is a very special place for our family and friends. As our children have gotten older we have not been able to spend as much time at our cabin so we thought we would share our cabin with other families to make great memories.

We loved our week at the cabin! Everyone came home relaxed and refreshed. The photos hardly do it justice! The cabin is so perfectly decorated and cozy. The beds were very comfortable. I can't say enough good things about it, we'll definitely be back!

Great place!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the place! Clean and in great shape! We were disappointed when we got there that there was no wood for the wood-burning fireplace. I had asked Lynn earlier if the fireplace was a wood burning fireplace and she had said it was. She didn't mention that there was no wood provided. We spent part of our first evening driving to Wautoma and back to buy wood for the week-end. I was a little surprised that we didn't get a call anytime after we arrived to see if we had any questions or needed anything. The boys (12 and 16) loved the wii games and game machines!! They even survived without wifi!!
