Urban "detox" for the whole family!
"My family of 4 including myself, my wife, and our two kids (8 and 9 years-old) stayed at this wonderful cabin for 3 nights and 4 days over Spring Break. Our (the parents) goal was to have a some real family time without cell phones, video games or other electronic distractions. No TV, satellite, or cell phone service here! As nervous as I was (we're fairly "plugged in" normally), this was a GREAT decision and this cabin was perfect! The cabin was very comfortable and just the perfect amount of rustic. Of course we had electricity, hot water, a bathroom with shower, and a fully stocked kitchen (bring your own food) so we had the essential modern conveniences. The beds were comfy and the kids especially loved the loft! We ate breakfasts and dinners on the front porch and watched the kids practice archery, fly kites, and play with the puppy in the field in front of the cabin. Bring some carrots and apples for the horses too!
The setting was beautiful and the kids fell in love with the horses and the resident puppy, Finn. There were deer to be seen every morning and evening and we especially liked the short walk up the driveway to the biggest beaver dam we've ever seen! We finally saw a couple of beavers inspecting the dam around sunset one evening. If you can find it (Joe will help), there's a "skid trail" that will take you up to the top of the large hill where the views are fantastic and even more deer can be found! On the trip, we spotted deer, beavers, mountain goats, and bald eagles. It's been a long time since I've seen starts like the ones in these dark skies… amazing!
Although this is the perfect place to re-connect with the family without the gizmos interfering, there are places within an easy drive to quickly make sure modern civilization still exists! :-) We drove into Leavenworth and to Chelan within an hour for sightseeing. There's a small convenience store 5 minutes down the road and a grocery store 15 minutes away.
We HIGHLY recommend this cabin to anyone who wants to get away from it all for a few days but still be in easy driving distance to the "big city". The owners are very helpful and yet mindful of your privacy. The setting is serene and the cabin very comfortable. Unplug and unwind for a few days, it may just surprise you how good it feels!"
