Secluded Log Cabin on Rough River Lake
average rating of 4.7 based on 10 reviews

Loved the cabin and the area

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is super nice with 2 bedrooms and 2 full-size (large) bathrooms. The Living Room and the Kitchen are combined with the bedrooms separated by the large living / kitchen / dining area.

The only thing I found lacking was no wifi and I thought when I looked at the house on homeaway that it stated the house had wifi (it doesn't).

I didn't really miss it but it shouldn't say it has it when it doesn't.

The owner provided good customer service. I would recommend this property to my friends and relatives. The attractions in the area like the Rough River Lodge was nice. We had a wonderful late lunch there. The property was clean and well-maintained. A few light bulbs were out but all in all very nice.

Owner's Response: Because of the rural area where this cabin is located internet service is not available at this property. The available service and speed is unacceptable. "No" internet service is and has always been clearly posted in the VRBO listing. I verified that the listing information had not changed and it is still showing "No" on the mobile and full sites. I apologize for any miscommunication. As with most rural areas an affordable and dependable internet provider is not available.

David's Stay On Rough

  • 5 of 5

My stay was for almost 3 weeks and it was perfect. The cabin was very clean, well stocked with all the living essentials. I would note that if you have an iPhone that you can connect to the internet through "Your Personal Hot Spot" under settings and even use your laptop or tablet. My experience far exceeded my initial expectations. I would recommend this cabin to anyone that is looking for a private and quite get away. I could live there in comfort.

Nice and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Nice quiet cabin. Very clean and in a nice area. There was no gas grill as advertised and there was no wifi (though that wasn't expected). Nice gas fire place and plenty of room. Overall very happy.

Owner's Response: Apologies for the grill missing. It was destroyed in the wind storm a couple nights before the quest arrival. With the cold temperatures it was not immediately replaced. It will be replaced immediately upon locating a quality replacement.

Great place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was fantastic. Nice open floor plan bathrooms were great. Nice location. The only complaint I have is there was a large vibration throughout the cabin when the heat came on.

Owner's Response: I appoligize for issue with the furnace. I was unaware there was a problem until the review was posted. The HVAC tech found a bearing in the motor that had failed and a new blower motor has been installed.

Excellent stay.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described, property is very well maintained and in a beautiful setting. Thanksgiving dinner at Rough River Lodge restaurant was exceptional. Weather was cold, but we were prepared as we bundled up and walked and explored the area. Will look forward to visiting again, probably in the summer. Owner was very receptive to assisting us if we needed anything ..... we didn't. Would definitely recommend.
