  • Wonderful as always.


    We have stayed in this property once before, and it has been very close to perfect. The hosts thought of virtually everything. It is peaceful well stocked and very relaxing.

    The only point to consider is if you are allergic to, or negatively reactive to, cedar. Half the interior is lined with cedar wood. My lungs react with irritation to cedar, so I have to open the doors and windows to air it out. Not a perfect solution, but workable. In spite of this, we will almost certainly come back next year.

    Aside from that - which is by no means the fault of the property owners - this is an ideal cabin if you're looking for peace and quiet, and want to get away from it all and relax. Beautiful view, as well. There is a mountain stream next to the cabin which provides a very nice continuous sound of trickling water, also.

    Highly recommended for those seeking peace, relaxation, disconnection from the world. An all-wheel drive vehicle is definitely recommended for getting up the driveway, however.

  • Fantastic view


    The cabin was fantastic. The only drawback was the incredibly steep driveway. We had difficulty getting up it each day after it rained and we were in a 4 wheel drive pickup truck.
