You’ll love how bright and spacious the interior feels, boasting mountain inspired decor, cozy furnishings, and lots of windows that let in plenty of natural light. After a thrilling day exploring the great outdoors, refuel with a meal prepared in the large kitchen, which comes fully equipped with all the necessary appliances, a coffeemaker, toaster, dinnerware, basic cookware, and utensils for 8. Gather around the rustic dining room table that seats 6 to enjoy a meal with your loved ones. There’s also extra seating for 4 guests at the convenient breakfast bar. You’ll find it easy to unwind in the lovely living room, where you can cozy up by the toasty fireplace with a good book, or watch cable shows on the TV for entertainment. Once your evening has come to a close, retreat to the relaxing master bedroom, complete with a king-sized bed, twin-sized sleeper sofa, fireplace, television, jetted tub, and private balcony, offering access to the breathtaking forested views outside. The second bedroom is equally pleasing with its own private balcony and 2 queen-sized beds, which practically guarantee a good night’s rest! 

Ideally situated for outdoor enthusiasts, this property allows you to take full advantage of a wide variety of year-round recreation.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a girlfriend weekend in Utica. The cabin was very nice and clean and had all of the amenities that we needed. It was close to the park and downtown Utica. We'd definitely stay again.

Villa stay with friends

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at the villa! We had 4 adults and 4 kids 4 and under, and the place was spacious and clean. We spent a morning at the water park which needs some TLC, but our accommodations were awesome. It would be nice to get a new frying pan because the one there is falling apart, and have a new dish sponge available for washing dishes, but otherwise we were pretty well stocked. We would definitely comeback again.
