                                                                    This cabin was very nice, decorated really nice. Great for fishing we tried our hand at that, no luck but fun.

                                                                    Very roomy home. With all that said, I would suggest that something be done with the master bedroom the temp in there was very cold, it was heating but still cold. The couple that stayed in that bedroom had a hard time keeping warm even tho, the temp was always at about 77 degrees.

                                                                    It was very cold out side. Also the pillows on the beds were not good.

                                                                    I would rent this again, but in the spring or summer

                                                                    Thank you Shirl for getting with me on the things when I needed it,.

                                                                    Very Nice Place...Toni

                                                                    But all in all we had a great time, played a lot of games, the fireplaces I loved.

                                                                    Awesome place to stay.

                                                                    Amanda L.

                                                                    Thanks for sharing your home with my family, we enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying again.

                                                                    Awesome vacation cabin!

                                                                    Wendy H.

                                                                    The pictures do not do this property or the surrounding area justice! The hot tub was a delight and the mast tub could handle a NBA all star!

                                                                    Can’t wait to book our next trip!

                                                                    Beautiful and relaxing

                                                                    Heather N.

                                                                    The cabin is easily accessible and not too far from a town. Beautiful location. Peaceful and relaxing. We loved it.

                                                                    Very nice home and beautiful property. Relaxing by the river.

                                                                    Kathy H.

                                                                    Home was clean and well maintained, and accommodating with modern conveniences while offering the beauty and tranquility of the river and mountains. My favorite time of day was sitting on the porch glider watching the river and listening to nature. Property is immaculately maintained and adds to the beautiful surroundings. The bank access to the river is slippery. King bed needs new pillows and bed linens that fit better as they kept pulling off the mattress. We barely had room to load our trash into the van on our departure. Having cleaning crew dispose of trash would be a nice addition to a nearly perfect experience.

                                                                    Great Time, Great Location

                                                                    Eric G.

                                                                    Enjoyed a long weekend at this cabin on the river. Near enough to town while maintaining the solitude enjoyed in a mountain trip. We will likely stay here again.
