    Wonderful stay as usual. Always enjoy staying here. The location is ideal for our use and local amenities are nearby should you need extra supplies.

  • Great place to stay!


    Everything you need is already there. Stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, dishes etc. Plenty id towels and linens. There were 6 of us and the stay was very comfortable. Only one issue with the AC and I only bring it up to give you an example of how wonderful the owners are. The owners had someone out there to fix the AC the very same day! Super fast response time and they had someone out asap to fix it. The place is really top notch and the owners are absolutely fantastic! Can’t wait to stay again next year.

  • Really nice cabin


    we really enjoyed the cabin. we booked for deer season and we were very happy with the size. We received three inches of surprise snow and the bedrooms were a little chilly. If extra blankets were provided this would not have been a problem.
