ReviewsWrite a review
Just got back from a girls weekend away and was so impressed with this cabin. Remote, situated at the end of a long driveway in the woods, surrounded by picturesque country and farms. Perfect for a group- we only had 11 and there was room for many more. Clean and well maintained with just about everything you could need. As advertised and a great value for the price. Owners are very easy to work with and helpful. I would only ask for 2 things: 1. More comfortable pillows- they are thick and lumpy so bring your own even if you're not that picky. 2. An ipod dock- we couldn't figure out how to plug in with an aux cord so bring CDs. Will definitely return. Thank you Ed & Lisa
