Owner's Response: Hi Shawn and thank you for taking the time to write this awesome review! I guess you all had a great time! You're review just confirms our theme that these cabins are a mountain paradise. We can't think of any better place to go for rest, relaxation and bonding with nature. And we couldn't do any of this without the help of Buddy and Marvadean! We are blessed to have them caring for our cabins. I guess this means we will be hearing from you again in the near future and we look forward to when that will happen:) Todd & Lindy Smith

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an awesome time here! The place clean and had everything we needed for our one week stay. There were puzzles, books, movies and games to keep us engaged as a family. The views were awesome. The creek was relaxing. If the kids loved it you know it is a great place!

Cabin itself was nice. Furnishings however were awful. Furnishings were wore out and sunk when you sat on them. Felt like you needed to be pulled out. Very uncomfortable. Beds were impossible. Hard and made noise at every turn of the body. My husband and I couldn't sleep together when one or the other rolled over we woke up. The hot tub, creek and location was best. Tried to make a Primb Rib for New Year's Eve, oven couldn't hold temp. Ruined a $50 piece of meat.

We rented the cabin for 7 nights left 3 nights early couldn't stand any more. Notified owner on second night of our issues. She just reassured on what she had paid for stuff and when and all the positive reviews they have had. I feel I am owed a refund of the 3 nights we didn't stay because of the accommodations. Oh and dog hair was every where. I would sit on the couch and have fur all over me.

Perfectly Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin on Collett Creek! The cabin is very well done with all the amenities, very clean, comfortable and relaxing. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect location for exploring and the hot tub on the deck with the sounds of the babbling creek were simply wonderful. A truly enchanting place.
