  • Great place!


    This home is in a great location, beautiful views! The home was very clean and stocked with amenities. We would love to rent again if in the area.

  • Beautiful view


    This property was really nice. The view was so pretty. We had a couple issues checking in, but the owner Jeanette was very responsive and had this solved quickly. She even bought us pizza for dinner that first night. I would recommend this property highly.

    We came to the property at the last minute for ours sons 9th birthday after our first cabin was canceled due to the Winter storm. The location was great for sledding right on the property, which is why we booked it. Turned out to be just as we expected. The house had all you needed. Nice soft beds. Great pull out sofa in game room. Only complaint would be The kitchen only had one pot and a few pans, but we made due with bowls in the microwave to cook.
