Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was very warm and cozy. The living room furniture was extremely comfortable. I loved the dishwasher amenity. We were very pleased with the quiet and privacy of this place. It was very clean. The only improvement would have been to have another bathroom and wireless internet.

Cute cabin

  • 4 of 5

My family had a great time at the cottage. The neighborhood was quiet and the location was beautiful. The cabin suited are family of 6 comfortably. The cabin was decorated nicely and the hot tub was clean and well kept. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating was because of the shower and water supply. The shower was rather abrasive due to the shower head needing updating. For the adults, it was bearable but the children found it too harsh on their little bodies. The water supply had a distinct smell to it as well which appeared to be well water which was also hard on the children's skin and they refused to drink it.
