"Don't miss this one....this cabin is directly adjacent to the most PERFECT stream you will ever encounter - deep pools, waterfalls and accessible by foot, just a 30 second walk from the cabin - what a property! Our family enjoyed this mountain retreat for 4 days and 3 nights in March 2015. The cabin is larger than it appears in the photos, and the extra-wide deck overlooking the stream is amazing - it had an umbrella-covered outdoor table, where we had our evening meal every night, complete with patio lights clipped onto the umbrella - very nice as it became dark. The outdoor fire pit was a major highlight of the trip - we had a fire every night, with S'mores, hot dogs, stories and pure enjoyment of this thoughtful feature. There was some firewood provided - even kindling and small branches - but my son also brought his ax and splitting wedge, making even more firewood from cut trunk pieces that were provided in a pile down the hill from the cabin. The porch swing was a big hit for the grandchildren, ages 5, 3 & 1. There's a gate at the steps entrance to the porch/deck, which provided safety for the little ones to roam on the large porch/deck. The kitchen is extremely well equipped - just bring paper towels and toilet paper. There is plenty of cabinet space - no automatic dishwasher, but every other convenience is there. How nice to have a washer & dryer with this cabin, essential with little ones. The cabin was very clean and easy to keep clean. Towels & linens are provided, though you will have to make-up your beds when you arrive, and wash/fold all linens & towels before you leave. Although we were only in the foothills, the property is so secluded, it felt as though we were deeply placed into the wilderness. There is a road just across the stream, but otherwise, we loved the privacy. The mile-long driveway is a single lane, gravel road, with some curves and hills, but if carefully driven, it's not a problem. The manager of the property, Brent, came by on our last day & is a great guy - loved to be sure the guests were having a good time and had everything they needed. Quang (one of the owners) answered all my pre-trip questions and was quick to email or call me when needed. We sent our rental payment through Pay Pal - extra convenient! Our family will definitely make this a vacation destination from now on - we hope to have a lifetime of memories for our children and grandchildren at this cabin. Thanks to the owners for this place!!"
