Beautiful, Comfortable, Roomy, CLEAN!!

  • 5 of 5

Rent each year for a large family for the weekend. This cabin was perfect. We had 6 couples along with 5 small children. Rooms were spacious enough to add air mattresses. The Gameroom is in the lower level so the kids had a blast while us adults hung out in the kitchen/dinning area. There is even a room off the kitchen with a ping pong table. Loved the cabin. Only mins drive to Big Boulder slopes. Walkable to the lake. Owner is very responsive and accommodating. Renting was so easy. Will definitely Rent again! Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

This House is amazing

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great find. It was clean and had everything we needed. Working with Barry was easy and he did everything we asked. The house was clean and was great for our family and friends. The kids LOVED the game room and adults loved the kids being DOWNSTAIRS!!! I will definitely come back again!
