    Very peaceful. Away from major civilization. No TV. Internet available but I was unable to access it. Enjoyed watching the Nisqually River flow in front of me even though I was unable to directly access the riverbank. Duck watching was entertaining. Wished I'd brought kindling & logs for the free-standing wood stove. Nice selection of games to play. Close to town for any provisions I needed. Was chilly & a bit windy, but the electric heat in each room was certainly adequate. Loved the long deck with the seating for enjoying the serene setting. Will certainly return when I need another escape!

  • Relax, refresh, recoup


    We loved staying in this cabin that truly is right next to the Nisqually River. Sitting out on the porch watching the river flow by is refreshing in the morning and relaxing in the evening. Christine was very responsive and helpful, as well. Somethings future guests should know...1) The photos are a little deceiving. The cabin is smaller than it appears and not as "bright" as the photos make it appear. 2) The rental is in a remote area which is great for privacy and quiet. It is about 12 minutes from Yelm.3) The cabin is rustic, but did have some surprising upgrades...sleep number bed, electric blinds, and heated bathroom tile floors. 4) The cabin does not have air conditioning. It was in the upper 80's/90's for a couple days while we were there. The cabin got a little warm but cooled off nicely at night. We slept with the windows opened and slept wonderfully listening to the river flow by.Overall we enjoyed our stay and plan to return next summer when we are in Yelm again.
