Beautiful & Peaceful for any family!
"My husband and I made plans for his immediate family to have their very first family trip, while enjoying our 8th anniversary. It's was absolutely wonderful, it was enough room for all the kids and adults to be together or separate. Sleeping arrangements was no worries, enough linen, towels, etc. Going grocery shopping and cooking was effortless. Woke up to snow on top of the cars one morning. It was a great time and we look forward to coming back in the spring/summer months. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!"

Annual family trip to the mountains (including the Grammys!)
"We selected Bearadise for our annual fall mountain trip and found the home to be just as advertised. This is a nice "cabin" in a nice gated community. The home was well stocked and everything worked. As any frequent vacationer knows, this is not always the case. My wife and I did not hear any complaints from the family regarding the cabin which says a lot. My 17 year old son loved the exceptional internet connection as much as my 84 year old mother loved the views. The location is secluded, however you "can get back to town" with a short ride...that's huge for a mountain rental. My favorite feature was the main level bath room wall paper! You will have to rent the cabin to find out why! The owners were great to work with."

"Honestly, I have never been on a vacation where I wasn't ready to get home....NEVER. This is the first time I didn't want to leave. I could live there! It is so peaceful, soul-lifting, beautiful, serene, fun. Words cannot describe this cabin/property. We are a family of 7. Kids ages are 5 - 13. Never a dull moment...Never heard the words "I'm bored". You do not need to leave the property to have a great time - the kids were so worn out by the end of the day from all of their adventures, it was great! Previous reviews said they didn't see a soul on their visits and that is the truth. We spent 6 nights, hiked for miles down that stream and there wasn't another person or house. One of my favorite things to do was sipping coffee on the porch, listening to the stream, watching the kids search for crawdads. The antique stove was so much fun to cook with. We made cobblers, pulled roast pork, etc - works like a charm and so unique! Loved taking pictures of the kids at the mill, with the tractor....You just have to book this place to see all of the amazing things that I'm sure we didn't even cover on our trip.
I can't wait to go back. One of a kind property!
P.S. If I could give one tip...If you plan on hiking IN the stream (and I recommend it because you miss some beautiful sites just staying on the trails), like we did many times....wear an old pair of tennis shoes - it will save your feet. There are many beautiful rocks and the majority are not even slippery. We just noticed after miles of hiking, water shoes didn't offer enough cushion. Slipped on tennis shoes and we were good to go. OH! And grab a hiking stick - they have some by the front door!"

"Excellent directions to the property. We were late arriving and had no trouble finding the cabin. Very clean with an updated kitchen (granite counter tops, etc., even a Keurig). The deck looks directly down on the river. There is a stone ledge on the river bank that's perfect for fishing. The cabin is on a one lane gravel road with only three other cabins and you can barely see them so it feels very secluded. It was a perfect romantic anniversary weekend. The parking is limited (as others have said) but manageable."
