"This cabin was so beautiful both inside and out. It was rustic, homey, quiet, romantic, relaxing, comfortable beds, nicely appointed master bathroom and guest bathroom at the top floor. There was something wrong with the half bath by the living room. Possible septic smell. The kitchen was large and well equipped. The previous renters have ALL left some dry goods behind for the next family to include pasta and sauce, canned goods, rice, non-stick spray, charcoal, lighter fluid, etc. Also, there were more spices there than I have in my own kitchen back home. We left behind mosquito candles on the porch and scented candles inside. We did not run the A/C AT ALL and it was JULY. We opened the windows and ran the attic fan. Cool breeze at night. Slept like babies! The kayaks were nice fun for the kids (age 9 & 10). The dogs had a blast jumping off the dock. The lake was so clear and clean you could see over 100 feet down. The water falls, rope swings into the lake, and nature excursions right there were fantastic! I would NOT recommend bringing your boat. We have a large utility vehicle and we still managed to get stuck twice towing the boat up the mountain. Very hazardous! Rent a boat there. Also, this isn't a good place for elderly or small children. The walk down to the dock is steep and there is a leap to the dock from the steps. The grocery store is a 30-45 minute drive (one way). We recommend trying to buy everything you need the first trip to the store. We recommend you arrive, take inventory of what you need, then shop. We didn't need half the stuff we thought we would. Also, pay it forward by leaving something behind for the next people. Be it some pasta shells, candles, dish soap, etc. It made me feel happy that the people before us were so considerate. We did the same. There is NO cell service. NONE! It was nice actually. We were able to text and email though. Bring a phone card in case of emergencies.. Forward your phone to the house BEFORE you head up the mountain. The kids did not ask to use their iPads once. This was an old fashioned "off the grid" vacation, and we LOVED IT! Use your iPod or iPad to hook up to the stereo to listen to your favorite music. Surround sound speakers inside and out. I laid in the hammock and listened to mellow soothing music and just relaxed. Ping pong downstairs and HUGE bunk room (sleeps 8) was AWESOME! Care gently for the house because we will be back again and again for years to come. Enjoy!"
