  • Enjoyable stay


    Everything was pretty good except I would say a fairly decent issue, it would be the heater. The temp on the first night was I believe around 20 degrees or colder which is expected during the winter but the heater ran Continuously all night and upon waking up the temperature inside the house was 55 with the setting around 68 it does have a fireplace and a wood stove but you are unable to use the wood stove for whatever reason. And the camera on the back porch which I understand is for bears it was just kind of eerie having the camera facing into the living room. But other then those 2 issues the family and myself enjoyed the cabin.

    Homeowner's Response: "Hi Brian, we will have the heater looked at. This has been the first instance in 5 years. We were just there two weeks before your arrival with no issues. As stated in your review, we have a Ring system for the front and rear doors for security, and we can see about moving it to the opposite side. Thank you for your feedback, and again, we'll inspect the cabin along with our Guest Contact and maintenance team."

    I took my family to this cabin for a quick little getaway before the craziness of the holiday season. It was a beautiful, cozy cabin. Great amenities, pool table, TV in every room, and cozy! We’ll plan to go again!

  • Cabin in the Woods


    The property was not as it was portrayed in the pictures. Furniture was old and uncomfortable and the kitchen appliances were falling apart. Good location to town and the wild deer were amazing! Just needs some updating! Thank you!

    Hi Jason, the homeowner would like to share the following: "We are sorry that you felt the furniture was old and uncomfortable for you. Our sectional is only 3 years old and was purchased brand new. The futon is brand new and has been there for approximately 4 months. Our cabin is rustic and full of details. All kitchen appliances are also 3 years old with the exception of the new dishwasher. Our property manager will checkout everything and let us know. Yes the wildlife is great there and stop by to visit daily and lately the wild horses have made their presence there as well!"
