  • Great Place!


    We really enjoyed our stay here. It’s a great property off the highway but far enough back where you don’t even notice. Bill came over and introduced himself and was very friendly! He took care of all our needs. The cabin was perfect for our family of four and the property itself was incredibly beautiful. We hiked around and explored quite a bit. The view from the front porch is phenomenal. We would definitely stay here again!

    This place was perfect for a girls weekend get-away. Bill was more than welcoming and helpful, and the location was centrally located to the towns we wanted to visit, as well as the mountains we wanted to play in! It was perfect!

    This property was perfect for our stay. Manager was great and gave us some ideas of local events. We did some trail riding and caught lots of local food, this property is a great home base if your doing outdoor things in the area!
