    It was just right for my family. Big enough for everyone to have their own privacy

  • Bear paw


    Would have been nice if it had more than one tv,a hot tub, and chairs around fire pit. But other than that it was ok

  • Great Place


    We really enjoyed our stay! It was a nice clean place and not to far from Helen at all.

  • Overall fine cabin


    We planned this last minute and were just looking for somewhere to meet with family. The cabin was okay. The pool table had a quarter size hole near the center. The remotes for the tv and fan control all had low or dead batteries that we replaced. All the bulbs in the living area ceiling fan light were blown. We replaced those also. There was an issue with the light switch in one of the downstairs bedroom where it didn't work properly and when you flipped it, you could hear a crackling noise. Maintenance did come and address it but still doesn't work 100%. And there was hardly any light in the game room. Also it is listed as 4 bedroom and 4 bathroom when there is really 3 actual bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and the game room with a futon (and no bedding for the futon). No extra blankets or anything. For what we needed it for it was fine but not great.
