THIS CABIN DOES NOT HAVE A LAND LINE, AND CELLULAR SERVICE IS NOT GUARANTEED<br><br>
The website gives impression that property is on water at first glance. Upon confirmation, map is sent with details showing not so. Otherwise, a short drive to one of two public ramps on the lake. No other access from entire property. Road to property is mostly gravel which can be a hassle or fun depending on your vehicle. Main bed is comfortable and firm. Biggest issue was lack of any condiments or spices (except for a little salt and pepper) for cooking. Also, bring your own pots and pans as the ones in cabinet are either rusty or the Teflon flaking badly.
Other than that a good place on short notice for a 1-3 day stay, however a bit expensive for what is offered.
