Head ‘Yaakwards’ and explore the hidden Yaak River Valley! Rich in mid-60s nostalgia and year-round coziness, the 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom vacation rental is a unique retreat.

  • Nice getaway


    Enjoyed our stay very much. Beds were comfortable. Beautiful location.However, a few recommendations:Need a bigger coffee pot. Coffee pot was a 2 cup pot.Provide a hair dryer.Clean the inner windows. (cob webs and spiders)(Paid large cleaning fee so this would be expected)Ad says walk to the river from cabin . This is more of a hike. No trail and not able to access the water shoreline, so ad is misleading. Slight odor of animal urine in cabin. Ring cameras in numerous windows are annoying.
