At the same time, this cabin offers private and secluded at the end of the road location with plenty of parking space, bring your favorite toy on a trailer to enjoy mountain roads or clear lakes in the area if you like.

Second level has great traditional cabin feel with exposed beams in the ceiling, tongue and groove walls in dining area and wooden and stone tile floors along with big stone fireplace. These combined with rustic dining set, comfortable sofas, 42' Led HDTV and lots of windows letting the light in make this level great for get togethers or watching the game or movies from vast 50 DVD:s collection.

The deck outside has very nice and private Leisure Bay hot tub, big 7'-9'' square which seats 8, has lots of jets and changing colors for those dark nights. Deck wraps the house and is 12' wide, has nice dining set and a big Char-Grill Duo grill with one side propane gas and one side charcoal along with sideburner. There is also good set of utensils to cook great steak from local grocery store.

Terrace level has spacious game room with carpeted floors and special steel ceilings along two private bedrooms which have closets and queen size beds. The game room has pool table, nice sofas, one recliner and the other turns into queen size bed, and of course 36' TV and DVD player.

The terrace level doors open outside and there is a simple firepit for roasting those marshmallows under stars.

The upper level is dedicated to master bedroom, roomy bathroom with jacuzzi bath and private balcony. The bedroom floor is covered with carpet and huge bathroom has tiles while walls are tongue in groove type wood panels. In the bathroom there is shower, jacuzzi bath, and washer and dryer available for use.

The Bavarian Pit Stop Cabin is suitable for families with kids, groups of friends, motorcycle and trailer friendly. The cabin has three stories with stairs, although the staircases are straight and extra wide, it still has limited handicap accessibility to the levels with bedrooms.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely visit to Helen. The cabin is cozy -- we especially enjoyed the fireplace & firepit! We had a surpricingly delicious meal at "Survivor's" when everythingelse was closed. The hot tub was great.

Thanks for a great trip!

We spent a wonderful time in this cabin.The only problem was on the first night with the power but we called the owner and explained everything to us. In general a lot of great memories.

Nice cabin at the end of the road. Good morning view of the mountains for coffee drinking.

Perfect spot to be in town but not in town. Cabin was nice, very clean and everything worked with no issues. I liked the layout of the bedrooms, master upstairs and two small bedrooms in the basement on either end. Plenty of room between the bedrooms for privacy and the friends who sleep loud.

Clean, Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I went here for my sister's bachellorette party. The cabin was very cute and CLEAN! There was plenty of room for all 7 of us. It was in a great location (you could walk to Helen, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it as the cabin is up a large hill) and nice and quiet. The perfect mountain retreat. The only problems we had were the small amount of pans for cooking breakfast and it wasn't well stocked in toilet paper (which we were unprepared for). Over all, I would definitely recommend this place for a large group and I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for everything!

You are at the top of the hill...serenity all around. The cabin is nicely appointed and meets almost every need. We had a wonderful visit.
