Beautiful scenic cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Charming little cabin with tons of space!! Nice and clean with everything you could ever need to make some tasty food and enjoy it out on the deck...which gives a beautiful view of the sun setting. Also, Kim was great with getting back right away with any questions! If you want to just get away for some peace and quiet, this is an awesome choice!

We loved this cabin! Conveniently located and beautiful views! I highly recommend this location.

  • 5 of 5

Obviously, the owners are organized because everything was available and easy to find. We loved the labels, especially in the kitchen. The views from the living area were amazing and I even watched a fox from the living room! Access to trails was easy and the horseshoe driveway made it so easy for use to move the Jeep and trailer around. Bed was really comfortable and I've never seen such a unique shower! Made me smile. The photo you see on the main page does not represent how awesome this cabin is! We plan on returning!

Owner's Response: The shower is like one you have never seen, but we love it. Glad to know you had no trouble with the accommodations, we have enjoyed making sure renters know exactly where everything is and what is available in the area. New listing have been added to the refrigerator showing local restaurants, golf clubs, ski resorts, etc....just trying to make vacationing as hassle free as possible. Thank you for your kind words, you were great renters.

5 day snowmobile trip

  • 4 of 5

It was perfect for 2 couples snowmobiling trip, 3 couples would have been ok too, but would have been crowded. Adding a hot tub on the deck would be awesome 😜

Owner's Response: If only a hot tub were an option that would be great...I don't think the deck would be able to support it, but it was a great suggestion, we will consider this in the future when making design changes. Always love to hear the feedback. Thank you for the kind review.

Wonderful Place for Snowmobiling

  • 5 of 5

We Got to cabin right after a 6 t0o 8 inch snowfall. The trails were groomed and road were covered. The nice thing is that the trails are so close to cabin.

The cabin has everything you might need. Well equip for what you may need. This was our 2nd year the last time no snow but not this time. We will definitely do it again. Would definitely recommend to every snowmobiler.
