Army Visit worth every penny!
My family stayed at this beautiful log cabin for a week in March 2018. Our trip was planned to visit my 19yr. old son who is stationed in Ft. Lewis. The cabin had plenty of space for us to feel at home and relaxed. We traveled from the east coat with a group of 5. My son stayed with us while we visited for the week, giving us a grand total of 6. There was plenty of privacy for everyone. The view from the deck is absolutely gorgeous! The porch swing is very relaxing!. My wife is a chef and raised the boys on home cooked meals. We had a goal to invite a bunch of soldiers back to the house for a home cooked meal. We hosted a dinner for my son and 13 of his Army buddies. There was plenty of room in the kitchen to cook the large meal and plenty of room to the guys to enjoy. The smile on their faces was priceless! They were thankful for our hard work in the kitchen ! The host was very accommodating and worked with my family very well. He was a great host. The directions provided to the house from Sea-Tac airport were perfect. Check-in was very smooth. The only negative comments that I could even say are as follows... Water pressure at the house is a little low but nothing that was too serious. The bath towels were not very nice. Two were tattered and another had several stains on it. We actually ended up going out and buying a few new bath towels. We ended up giving them to my son after we left ( apparently he needed a few nice towels at the barracks!) None of these minor issues would keep me from renting this cabin again. Overall a great trip for our first time to the west coast! I would love to come back in the summer time and have the opportunity to use the amazing Lake!
Post Christmas Family Reunion
Our vacation did not get to a great start due to a mistake in the cleaner's scheduling. We walked into a house that had not been cleaned after the last tenant left that morning, and all the linen were in a heap in front of the washer /Dryer! We spent the first night doing several loads of laundry , sweeping and cleaning the kitchen. We were also not able to reach anyone for assistance.
However, when Troy read my email the next morning, he was apologetic and reasonable in his response. He got to contact the cleaner to clarify and rectify the situation. Cassie the cleaner was totally sorry for her error and did what she could to assist.
Troy also kindly gave us a small refund to make up for the trouble and inconvenience. Overall, no serious harm was done and our children showed what family is all about with everyone pitching in to help out on that first night. We did enjoy our stay after all.
The Log house is an attractive property. It does however need touch ups, updating and refreshing. I think it would be great for a Summer break.
We rented this cabin during Christmas to gather our family together. The house was big enough to accommodate 12 people for dinner and comfortably sleep 6 adults, and three dogs. The kitchen was equipped with the necessary cookware, and had a dishwasher for easier clean up. The structure of the cabin is quite beautiful, with real wood beams, and a wonderful deck with a large swing overlooking the lake. We had snow while we were there which made the cabin and lake that much more memorable. We did not use any of the lake recreation equipment since it was winter, but there was a canoe with paddles, and fishing poles for use.
The stay did not get a 5 because the TV upstairs was dated and trying to figure out how to use it more than anyone wanted to deal with. There was a note to contact the manager if there were problems, but even that seemed cumbersome to set a time to meet them. We ended up watching Netflix on the small Roku TV downstairs. If the TV upstairs was newer and allowed for a great family movie gathering the experience would have been that much better. We also could not get the downstairs gas fireplace to work, and then it became not important enough to worry about. Having it lit would have created a more cozy feel.
Thanksgiving Family Reunion
Cozy and family friendly. Well equipped for a family gathering.
Great for families. Spaceaous and clean.
Everything needed provided. Including a canoe and paddle boat. Heater works great on cold nights.
Would stay again and again and again and AGAIN!
We had three families, two with two children and one with one child. This place was PLENTY big enough for all of us. We had a blast. The back deck is where we spent most of our time! Coffee in the mornings and drinks in the afternoon. Very relaxing. We'd go back again if we were brought to the area again.
