My fiance and I loved this little cabin. It was homey, spacious (for the two of us), comfortable and warm. I highly recommend visiting if you love to truly get away from it all and spend some quality quiet time with your family or a few friends. There was a nice wood stove, an outdoor firepit (both with plenty of wood), and small boats available to use in the lake (we didn't because we found we were out and about more than we thought we would be). There was also lots of storage space (two big closets and a dresser) as well as dishes, pans, silverware, and anything you may need to cook a meal (including a grill and charcoal)! Another fun aspect of the trip was that we even heard some animals scurrying about outdoors, including a hooting owl! There was a shelf of books to read as well as many brochures/pamphlets for things to do while on vacation. No cable TV (we don't have it at home either, so that didn't bother us) so we brought some DVDs to watch at night before bed. The only qualm we had was that neither of us had cell phone service at the cabin (Verizon and Sprint) which may be a problem for some. Other than that, we had a wonderful time enjoying the quiet and will surely be back in the future!
Bill and family were welcoming hosts, inviting us into their very well maintained and comfortable property. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home and that this was a safe, quiet, and adventurous area for us and our two kids. The lawn allowed them to get out and run; and the lake offered hours of swimming, paddling, and rowing-the water was just right this time of year and so we took long swims out into Lake Stinson. The lake is within sight from the comfortable chairs on the lawn; the dock is about a five minute stroll down a steep, curving, road that is paved on the steepest parts. As the kitchen was well equipped, we prepared all our meals there and felt we were in our home away from home. During the week there was almost no traffic on the road adjacent to the property which was conducive to relaxation for us wilderness-loving city dwellers. A family of woodpeckers were softly (no kidding) working on the tree behind the house-a treat for all of us to watch. Remember to bring sheets, towels, and blankets for the colder evenings/nights. The only downside was that we didn't schedule more time there...
