  • Nice cabin, but bed not queen size as advertised


    Nice, clean cabin in remote area. Only downside is that ALL the beds were full size and not queen size that was advertised for main bedroom. Otherwise, check in went smooth and cabin clean with everything appearing new and well kept

    Manager's Response:

    From the owner: "Hi Stephen, glad you enjoyed your stay at the cabin. The bed in the master bedroom is a queen-sized bed as I listed. I personally purchased and installed all of the furniture in the cabin. To my knowledge, nothing has been changed. The bed in the master bedroom is a queen-sized bed so a full would not fit properly in the frame. I will confirm on my next visit that nothing has changed but the cabin should be configured as listed. The downstairs bedroom and smaller upstairs bedroom have full sized beds and the master is the only one with a queen-sized bed. Thanks for visiting."

  • Great Cabin


    Loved the secluded location. Cabin was very clean and the deck was a hot spot to hang out. There was nothing about this cabin that we didn’t like and highly recommend. Only improvement that could be made is the double beds are a little small for most people.

    My two best friends and I rented this cabin in November 2021. We all had our own bedroom and plenty of room. The cabin was very clean and there was beautiful scenery. This cabin offered so much privacy that you felt like you were far away but it was a short drive to all of our destinations. It is fully stocked with all of your essential cooking items, so you could stop for groceries on the way in and have a very quiet and peaceful time without leaving. We will definitely book this place again!!

    The property was great for me, my mother and my son. We each had our own room and plenty of space in the living and kitchen areas. The outside deck across the back of the cabin is great to catch a glimpse of deer, bunnies or raccoons. Rental process was very easy from first deposit to check out. We stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed the cabin and the area. So much to do!
