  • Great view


    The road is curvy but the view is fabulous. We had some issues with the garbage and toiletries at the beginning because the house keeper made a mistake. Carrie the owner was able to send someone over a few days later to fix the issues. Over all the stay has been a great experience and I'd recommend it to others.

  • Amazing long weekend!


    We had an incredible time. The cabin is beautiful, well stocked and cozy. We grilled every night and enjoyed the fire pit as well, made s’mores and had a great time with family. The views are breathtaking.

  • The views and decks exceed expectations


    The owner,Carrie, was very proactive in reaching out and making sure you had proper directions. Road in is steep but no issues in summer with SUV. Great newer house with well equipped kitchen. Loved the decks in the morning and evenings. Lovely place.

  • Fun in the mountains


    We had lots of fun at Red Bird Retreat! The drive was definitely an experience! Certainly got better the more we did it! The house had everything we needed and it is in a beautiful spot!
