excellent overall experience

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything we expected and more! The house was clean, well stocked and comfortable! The owners were helpful with questions and directions. Our grandchildren loved being outside and exploring the beautiful area around the cabin. We also enjoyed all the games, the comfortable beds and the fireplace!! If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway, this is it! Loved the front porch, too!!

Charming cabin with beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

This Amherst cabin provided a wonderful experience to relax in the mountains. Janis and Sam are great to work with and incredibly responsive to questions. I cannot emphasize enough what a beautiful home this is and how Janis and Sam provide a personal touch to the entire experience. The cabin itself is stunning and well cared for, and spending a few days there makes you feel like you’re home. I can’t recommend it enough!

Quaint, cozy, private; wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing long weekend get-away! We have stayed many places, and Sam & Janis' cabin has earned a top spot on our list of favorites! The cabin literally has everything you need - they have thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable and relaxing....right down to robes and slippers! We will definitely be back!

The perfect cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed here 3 times now and each time I think we enjoy the cabin just a little more. We usually bring some games and movies and just have a super relaxing weekend. They always do a great job of keeping the cabin stocked with plenty of firewood. Which was amazing because the temperature got down to the single digits. They have also added a very nice hot tub! Unfortunately, it was painfully cold outside so we never tried it out. Perhaps next year!

A favorite

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed at this cabin years ago and have made it an annual tradition for our anniversary. You will not find a more scenic mountain spot nor owners as thoughtful and with as appropriate aesthetic. We just couldn't recommend a place more highly. It is perfect.
