"My family's "Magnificent Seven" stayed at this beautiful cabin. All seven would give it a 5 star rating! As much as we love each other--a little space is appreciated! I can't imagine that staying in hotel rooms for the week. This cabin is definitely the way to go!The layout of the house is spacious--lots of room for family fun in the living room, dining area and kitchen. The huge counter and table are super for games and activities. The master bedroom and bath are on the main floor, but it is amazingly quiet in there! The beds in the whole house are comfy with plenty of blankets (and yes, it did get incredibly chilly in the evenings. I loved it!) The kitchen is gorgeous. As others have noticed, the knives were hard to use (not a big deal on vacation for me) but there are plenty of dishes, cookware, etc.The appliances are top notch; even a trash compactor that assisted us in not having to carry out trash every day.(By the way--though I didn't see any instructions to do so, we took our trash to the convenient dumpsters at the corner of Harris Spring Road and Route 14. Easy!) There were paper towels, dish soap and toilet paper, too, but bring personal toiletries with you, including laundry detergent if you want to wash clothes. This cabin contributed a lot to helping us have the PERFECT vacation in all the parks that are mentioned --indescribable beauty! Even close by the cabin there are terrific places to see.We especially liked Navajo Lake and Cascade Falls. The deer are plentiful (careful with driving at dusk!!) A note about the region that could be helpful--unless you are from this region, you will be surprised by how dry the climate it. Yes, we've been told "but it's a dry heat!" time and again -- but it truly did affect us. We suffered nose bleeds, headaches, shortness of breath and minor "spaciness" affecting the adults each day. Only the grandkids (10 and 15) didn't seem to mind. SO, my advice: bring saline nasal sprays, a gallon of moisturizer--and headache relief if you're prone to that. Of course,WATER to carry when you leave the cabin -- a refillable bottle works well because all the parks have many refill stations.If you're the grandma like I am, be ready to take it slow and easy. I even puffed a little coming up the stairs--and i don't do that where I live! (but, our 40 year old "athletes" were still jogging!) Even with that said, I still say it was a PERFECT place to stay to enjoy this amazing region of Utah! What a wonderful time!"
