Great location - very clean

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The location was great and it was very well kept clean with everything you would need in the kitchen, etc. The one thing that was a big thing for us was no central heat. I will have to go back and read the description but I don't remember seeing it listed this way. Could have been an overlook on my behalf. However, with two small children under the age of 3, it wasn't the most settling feeling having gas heaters running all the time in the house. We love fires and there was a great fireplace downstairs, however the flute (spelling?) was broken and kept shutting and filling the room with smoke. I'm thankful my Dad was with us because I would have had no clue what to do if that happened! :) Owner was very nice and helpful and our stay was enjoyable - just the heat issue was a big one that I wasn't aware of. Also, I'm sure because of the cold, but there were swarms of ladybugs in the guest room upstairs. Not a big bother to me but definitely a bother to my husband! :)

It was a nice place for our far flung family to meet. We enjoyed the two night stay despite the rain

The owner was very nice and responded very quickly when contacted. The lodge was clean and well supplied. We were there with a 2yr old for the Polar Express which was in easy driving distance. I would love to return in the summer or fall.
