Fantastic Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a girls weekend away and was so impressed with this cabin. Remote, situated at the end of a long driveway in the woods, surrounded by picturesque country and farms. Perfect for a group- we only had 11 and there was room for many more. Clean and well maintained with just about everything you could need. As advertised and a great value for the price. Owners are very easy to work with and helpful. I would only ask for 2 things: 1. More comfortable pillows- they are thick and lumpy so bring your own even if you're not that picky. 2. An ipod dock- we couldn't figure out how to plug in with an aux cord so bring CDs. Will definitely return. Thank you Ed & Lisa

Beautiful private remote location in the Root River Valley area. 5200 sq ft log cabin surrounded by 50+acres of trees, valleys with a natural water stream & wilderness. Our home has spacious rooms & a huge kitchen & eating area, an entertainment room w/a large screen TV & a loft area with a computer & craft tables. Lovely, quiet getaway area but close enough to the "big city" of Rochester.
