  • Just like grandma's house


    This is just like staying at your grandparents home - The old charm was delightful and the kitchen was well stocked! The location is perfect for disconnecting to reconnect because you won't have any cell phone reception and there is only one TV in the house. (Thank goodness!) The views are completely unobstructed and you'll only have 2 neighbors. We brought our kids and they loved getting out to explore the caverns. (The kids did point out a headstone right by the firepit, so please be respectful!) This place has a lot of history, and you can tell it's had a lot of life lived here. If you're looking for frills this is not the home for you - but if you're looking to be outside and to reconnect with yourself this is the place!

    I'd also like to point out that Frank, our point of contact, was very communicative and very pleasant!

    Thank you for opening your home and hearts to us! We appreciate you more than you know!

    Manager's Response:

    Hi David, We understand the owner promptly responded and went to generous measures to make things right. We are sorry that you were not able to enjoy this wonderful property. Unfortunately, the property manager became concerned after receiving profane and obscene messages from you before arrival and did not feel comfortable moving forward with your reservation. Owners reserve the right to cancel any bookings for perceived safety concerns. In this circumstance, you were fully refunded. As owners, we work hard to create a perfect getaway for our guests and we hope to provide a truly 5-star experience for future guests.

    Absolutely loved our stay! The cabin has everything you need. The view is spectacular. My family enjoyed climbing and exploring on the boulders, finding the caves was exciting! Frank was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again!
