The most amazing place we have ever stayed!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is

Charming, Quite, Clean, and Comfortable!

If you are lucky to meet the owners you would understand why this little cabin in the middle of nowhere has so much character and peace within it.

We surprised our father for his 70th birthday and he could not be happier!

Janis is the most generous host!

You will not regret staying here and just like us I'm sure you will be a little sad as you are departing.

Thanks a lot Janis for sharing your home with us.

love

Ellie

Quiet, relaxing cabin with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect. I was looking for a place that wasn't near anything, I could cook all day and look at mountains as I drink coffee on a porch. And this is exactly that. Exactly what my boyfriend and I needed to unwind from the city. It's actually bigger than I was expecting, and everything is nicely updated - and clean! Wonderful cast iron pots, a fully stocked kitchen and a fire pit were bonuses. Can't wait to go back.

beautiful view, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what my husband needed to 'get away from it all', we spent most days sitting on the porch and appreciating the view. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen compact but fully equipped; I really do not know how it could get any better. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at you wonderful cabin.

Cozy, secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at this cozy, secluded cabin. We were looking to just get away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday things and this place was perfect for that. If you are looking for seclusion, this is it! Top of the mountain and all we heard was the beautiful sounds of nature, a dog barking in the distance and every now and then, a very faint sound of a car on the roads. The pictures online are right on point as to exactly how the cabin is. Only thing that would have made it better was to be able to see down into the meadow from the porch. Very thick trees there which blocked the view down the mountain. Other than that, we had a great weekend away! Would definitely stay here again! Thanks to Janis for being so accommodating as well!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cabin and the owners, Sam and Janis Roskelly have done a fabulous job restoring the place. We just got back from our 3 night stay, and feel fully rejuvenated. The area is peaceful and tranquil. If you are looking for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, this is the place. There is limited cell phone service, so you won't have to be worried about someone bothering you.

Janis has gone out of her way to make you feel at home. You walk in and instantly feel as if it is your home. Everything you need is to cook is there, including a few staples, such as a few spices, salt, sugar, flour, coffee/tea. There is a TV with some videos, some games as well as books.

Thank you Janis. It fit our needs perfectly. We may be back! :-)

bucolic vharm

  • 5 of 5

This historic 18th-century log cabin has been modernized and was an amazing balance of rustic charm and modern conveniences ( AC, ceiling fans, etc). Janis, the owner thoughtfully provided ice cold drinks for our arrival and the kitchen was well stocked with pantry staples such as olive oil, spices.
