One of a Kind
"There were few things on my mind, before I planned to book a cabin. Serene, away from all hustle bustle, nice and peaceful nature and most importantly a real dark sky (we are amateur astronomers).
Jimbo's Farm not only fulfilled all of my above expectations, but it exceeded our expectations. The cabin being a classic one, had those doors and frames that remind of the old times. Therefore, it felt as if we were back to our Granny's home (nostalgia at it's best). The huge front yard with a pond filled with trouts give you own little forest like experience, allowing you to take in the clean air, chirping of birds and the gentle sound of water stream all at once. My wife who was apprehensive of the cabin, was mightliy impressed the moment she arrived and enjoyed the stay thoroughly. The best part was, me and brother were praying for a clear dark sky during those three days. And Bingo, it was clear as it can be. Jimbo's farm being away from the city or major town lights, the sky was excellent for star gazing. We were able to see the milky way galaxy with naked eyes. Through our binoculars, we were able to view other deep sky objects such as Andromeda galaxy etc. Night photography was amazing. Over all, it is worth every penny to visit Jimbo's Farm. James and Carolyn were extremely courteous to answer all of our questions and made our stay even better.
This is a definite re-book place."

"This cabin was great for what we needed. We stayed here for a place to sleep and relax after we rode motorcycles all day. We had 5 adults in the cabin and we were comfortable, there is lots of places to spread out so everyone isn't cramped. Their was a neighbor that came over and offered up some fire wood and even got the fire started for us both nights, really friendly guy. Only negative thing about it, it is back a gravel road with a few turns, which was not great for motorcycles but it would not stop us from staying here again. And there is not much to eat or many shops close by, so if you are going for a getaway and not planning to get out of the cabin much, I would take plenty of food."

"We stayed here for five wonderful days. The property is different than the usual mountain lake house or cabin. Only accessible by boat and solar powered. We had to make some adjustments to our cooking and nightly routines due to not having full electrical access. But being on vacation its great to unplug and relax. It kinda forced us to put away the electronics and enjoy the peace and quiet. The scenery was amazing ! Beautiful views across the lake of the national park. Sunsets were great. Kids loved being able to swim right outside the door and kayaking around the house. Beware of the pontoon boat, it can be thirsty lol. Overall we absolutely loved our vacation on the lake and will return."

"We had a great stay at this house, which was in fantastic condition. Easy access to the marina on Fontana with reasonable prices for pontoon boats. Enjoyed several local hikes and an afternoon whitewater rafting. Only minor gripes were that the house has only a single remote control to get into the gated community. With two couples sharing the house, we often did different activities during the day. The remote service was usually available to ring us in by phone, but sometimes we had to wait a bit to get an answer. Be warned, there is no wifi and very spotty cell phone service. Do your online activity planning before you arrive! Otherwise, complete privacy, amazing views of the lake and the fog shroud in the mornings. Cool temperatures and a fantastic porch."
