This was the best cabin I’ve ever stayed in, in my life. Beautiful cabin with everything you need. Extremely clean, great space, lots of games upstairs. Beautiful bedrooms, and I can’t emphasize enough how clean and cozy my family and I felt during our stay. I would 100% recommend this cabin! Awesome and amazing experience.
Not your typical rental cabin.
This is not your typical rental cabin. Very clean. Great wilderness theme throughout with furnishings and fixtures. Great deck and large deck table for hanging out, dining, or playing cards/games. Would definitely book again.
best cabin ever!
We've stayed in many cabins over the years but this by far was our favorite!! It was so clean and so cute inside! The kids loved the playroom upstairs and the old school Atari video game was a HIT!! We would definitely stay again.
The cabin was super cute and very cozy. Owners were very helpful and responsive.
Rented this cabin for an annual girls weekend get away with nine ladies. The cabin is so adorably decorated and super cozy with more than enough room for all. The owners were very nice, responsive and helpful. This is my 7th year renting in the area and this was by far the best cabin we have rented. And close to the lake too. No more searching for new cabins every year... we have found our place!
Great cozy place for family and friends
We really enjoyed staying at this cabin.
Cons (I'm being very nitpicky here): cabin had a few minor dust cobwebs (like on a couple ornaments only). There were also a few dead ants on the kitchen counter (only like 10 or so). There also wasn't any hot water (more on this later). The heater upstairs also was s bit fidgety and was off (I think) on arrival. But we figured out how to change the temps a little after.
Pros:. Pretty clean overall. Bathroom was clean, bed was clean, and so we're seats and sofas. They also had a great selection of board games with a few missing some pieces. Loved the layout of the place. Close to Pinecrest lake and to a gas station/mini Mart.
Additional: we had a last minute reservation and the owners accommodated us greatly. Though we found a few dead ants on arrival, there was no bug problems and we even cooked 2 nights there. As for hot water, we didn't even notice until we came back the second night and showered (we arrived late the first night and already showered at home). We probably could've called the owners to figure out how to turn it on, but it was already night when we got back from the lake. We couldn't find instructions for it in the binder or posted, so we winged it and took cold showers (made for crazy stories later). The board games and entertain kept is occupied, we really appreciated the selection. Beds were comfy and warm. Plenty of sitting room. Loved the dining table and decor too. While there, we saw a rare giant pigeon and a deer, for a few pictures of them too. Note that Verizon is probably the only carrier which has signal there, and there's no wifi but these things are the same no matter which cabin you stay at here.
Overall, we would definitely stay again at this place. Had a great time and experience here.
Thanks Toua for your review, We are happy to hear you had a great time with your family! As for the hot water I am sorry to hear about that,I had been there a week before you stay and everything was working fine then and all the guests we have had stay since then have experienced no issues with lack of hot water. So not sure what might have went wrong it is a fully automatic on- demand hot water system that has not given us any issues for the last 5 years we've had the place, so again very sorry for the inconvenience!
Perfect and Relaxing Mountain Getaway!
A group of friends and I had a girls' getaway weekend here and absolutely loved the cabin! The cabin was very clean, decor was charming (love the bear theme!), the kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, utensils and all the cooking tools we needed, and it was big enough to fit 9 of us comfortably. The owner was very helpful and responsive with any questions I had about the rental. The location was perfect -- peaceful and quiet, and just a 10 minute drive from Pinecrest Lake. Keep in mind that the trash disposal situation is challenging (you have to drive to a separate location to throw it away) and there is no cellphone service (although it does help you truly "unplug" :) ), but besides that, everything was wonderful. I will definitely keep the cabin in mind for any future getaways!
