Away From It All During The Off Season

  • 4 of 5

First impression: The cabin is more rustic than it looks, but that wasn't exactly a bad thing. Jim, some new pictures showing the upgraded outdoor furnishings on the upper and lower decks couldn't hurt -- so much better than the plastic stuff currently shown. The dishwasher and stove have also been changed out. The stove is now a smooth top electric. More pictures of bedrooms and bathrooms (and fewer of snow scenes) would be a big help.

Our group visited during the off season and we had the entire greater Pinecrest area to ourselves. If you want to relax and decompress, this is the place and late summer is the time!

Some advisories:

One of the upstairs bedrooms is actually an ante-room to the upstairs master. It is not a private bedroom. If all of our party had made this trip (one couple had to cancel), this would have presented a logistical issue.

The downstairs master bedroom's bathroom doubles as the downstairs main bathroom with access from the living room, so it's not an exclusive master bath. Not a huge deal, but just FYI.

The heating in the downstairs master bedroom and adjacent bath present issues. There is still no heat at all in the bathroom (we brought our own portable unit), and the heater in the master bedroom cuts out after operating normally for a brief period (my guess is that the timer switch is faulty). This wasn't a bother since there are plenty of blankets and sleeping was comfortable, but that may not be the case for other -- particularly winter -- guests.

Conversely, the floor furnace under the stairs puts out some major heat! Just beware that the thermostat directly above it operates the fireplace, and that the furnace control is on the wall at the bottom of the stairs. They are not marked.

Two things I would add to the kitchen: A tea kettle for boiling water, and a plain old minute timer. The stove's control panel had the only minute timer, but when you're sitting out on the deck, that doesn't do you much good.

The biggest annoyance among our group was the toilets. All three are small-ish kid size and lower than average. Maybe we're just spoiled by the upgraded ADA-height, elongated bowl rigs we have at home. Your mileage may vary.

Again, these aren't so much complaints as they are advisories. We'd go back to this cabin regardless. It was exactly the relaxing getaway we were hoping for, and in general, what you see in the pictures is what you get. Thanks Jim, for sharing this special place.

Owner's Response: Glad all had a great time and thanks for the recommendations. :) Look forward to your next stay with us as we constantly are striving to make this the best family vacation cabin in Pinecrest/Strawberry. Some updates since your stay: - the stainless tea kettle was located deep in the cabinets - sorry about that - normally it is just on the stove top. - the master bedroom heater was replaced with a new, significantly better (1500 watt heat and gorgeous flame) larger electric fireplace. Timer tested out good. - the upstairs carpet was totally replaced with new gorgeous stainmaster carpet. All the bedspreads in the kids room were replaced. Next time we replace the toilets we will install the larger ADA ones - these are regular Home Depot sized. :) Good idea we had not thought of before. Jim and Cherie

Stunning location

  • 4 of 5

You couldn't ask for a more spectacular location. The cabin is lovely and so is the owner, Jim. Although there was an issue with the internet (switched to Verizon, password not updated) and the heat (cold snap not expected after hot summer) Jim went out of his way to take care of the problems. He even refunded part of the payment due to the inconvenience. I would definitely recommend this cabin for a couple or a family vacation. Thank you Jim!

Amazing cabin !

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at your cabin Jim.

It had plenty of towels and linens. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, drinkware and every kitchen tool and appliance we needed.

Beds were comfortable and furnaces worked fine.

The setting was so beautiful and relaxing.

We hope to come back next year.

Thanks from the Serlis Family.
