    This place was amazing. The place sat on a great piece of property where out kids could go out and explore. We got to see wild horses and elk. Inside was so cozy and plenty of space for all of us. The hot tub was fun to relax in after hiking most of the day. And the location was so close to all our activities that made it getting to everything on our list easy. The owner was so responsive to our questions and made our stay so memorable. Would love to come back here again!

  • Non working hot tub


    Paid extra for a house with a hot tub and Mountain View’s. Well the hot tub didn’t work the entire time we spent there pretty upsetting when all your wife ask for is Mountain View’s and a hot tub for her birthday

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Scott, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    - Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with the hot tub during your stay, especially on such a special occasion.
    - Upon receiving your text about the hot tub issue, we immediately took steps to address it. Unfortunately, due to the location, we were unable to get a spa technician out during your stay to address the issue. Despite our efforts, it seems there was a misunderstanding regarding the importance of keeping the hot tub covered to maintain heat in colder temperatures.
    - We understand your disappointment and frustration and have taken your feedback seriously. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we worked to resolve the issue, and hope the measures taken made up for the inconvenience.
    - We're pleased to inform you that the hot tub has been fully serviced and repaired by professionals, and it is now operational again.
    Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused during your stay. We strive to provide our guests with a comfortable and enjoyable experience, and we hope you will consider returning in the future to experience the full amenities of our property.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.

  • 5/5

    Liked waking up to Elk and Wild horses in the mornings. Beautiful viee. Just the right size cabin. Close enough to town for convenience and activities yet still felt secluded. Would have liked a list of suggested local attractions earlier, they were all sold out when we got there. The contact info originally provided by VRBO was terrible for info, but once they got us in touch with the owner, everything was great from then on. Will definitely book it again
