"Had a great time! Will definitely return!"

"We were celebrating a birthday and had multiple family members present. There were enough bedrooms for all, and bathrooms. Plenty of room to spread out. Unfortunately for us, it was a rainy weekend, so we did not enjoy the outdoor activities but the pool table and foosball table help kept everyone busy. Would definitely recommend this property."

"This cabin was absolutely gorgeous, and super clean! The views were amazing. Rhonda was great to work with. She was prompt in every question we asked of her. We have a great time on our girls' weekend! We couldn't have asked for a better experience!"

Comfortable home, well furnished, gorgeous view; 4.5 stars
"This is a wonderful place for a get-away. The view of the lake is lovely and changes constantly with the Sun, clouds, rain, fog, and wind. Every time you look, the lake and mountains have taken on a new personality. It's a great place to view the Fall colors.
The house itself has all the amenities a couple needs to allow them to just relax and enjoy the privacy, the view, and the clean fresh air.
The road up to the cabin is 'interesting'. I've driven roads with hairpin turns before so I had no trouble climbing the steep, narrow road in my manual transmission Mazda. You don't need a jeep. But be aware it could be a challenging climb for inexperienced drivers.
I gave this place 5 stars, but there are a few minor 'misses' that could be easily fixed:
1. Both coffee makers require the Melita #4 V-shape coffee filters, but the only filters provided were the standard Mr Coffee type. I made small pots of coffee to avoid an accident.
2. NOT ENOUGH TOWELS. (??) I could only find 2 set of towels for each bathroom. That was ok for our morning showers the first day, but what about using the Hot Tub that night? And what about using the shower and hot tub the next day? Guests should NOT have to wash and dry the towels every day.
3. GREEN firewood. Really green. I've used fireplaces for years, and even though I brought firesticks and kindling to get the logs going, I still wound up with a room full of smoke and had to open the door and windows. It took about 2 hours for the wood to dry out enough to really start burning hot before I could think about adding any more logs.
4. The hot tub cover can't be fully lifted off. I had to lift it mostly off and hope it didn't fall back on us. The lights in the hot tub weren't working. The plastic step to get into the hot tub is kind of 'cheesy'. It needs to be replaced with a larger, solid set of wood steps.
--These 4 items aren't show-stoppers. Visitors just need to be aware - but more importantly the cabin owners ought to make these few changes so that the cabin can get the SIX stars it deserves."
