Magic Christmas Get Away
The scenery and layout of these cabins is ideal for a small group of couples to get away from all of the worlds worries. Jon and Joan were incredibly helpful and accommodating with info about the area and even hiked paths so we could follow their tracks in the snow. We even received a small gift on Christmas morning from them. We will be visiting again no doubt.
We totally enjoyed hosting such a nice couple, and it's great to hear that they had such a nice time. Hope to see you again, Shaun!

Robin's Nest nice piece of tranquility
My significant other and I just returned from this property. We were pleased with the accommodations, cabin was well equipped and the property was very peaceful. If you like to hike, there are many options on where to go and if you like to relax near the water, there are a few beaches within a short drive. The only thing we were disappointed in is that we came to this location as it was pet friendly and we had noted in our inquiry that we were coming to golf and had a dog we would be bringing, this did not seem to be an issue. However it wasn't until we arrived and got settled that we saw there was a policy that the dog could not be left alone in the cabin. We spoke to the people who were managing the property and the only solution was to tie him up outside which we didn't feel comfortable doing, so this was a huge disappointment, had we known this would be an issue leaving him alone we would have made alternative plans.
Thanks for your feedback on the Robin's Nest and our dog policy.
The reason we put restrictions on leaving dogs alone in the cabins is because we have had a few bad experiences with dogs getting very agitated when their families left them alone in unfamiliar surroundings, and in turn harming themselves and the cabin. I am sorry that I did not clue-in when you mentioned that you were bringing a dog and planning on going golfing. I should have recognised that there would be a problem. To avoid this in the future I will put out dog policy on this site. We can also offer a wooden gate that our guests can put across the porch steps for those dogs that are ok with being left alone.
Thanks for your kind words about the Robin's Nest and we're glad that you enjoyed the trails and surroundings.
Very Best regards,
Joan & John
My partner and I just spent 3 glorious days at the Robins Nest cabin. It was an incredible space to wind down , be quiet , recharge and enjoy each other's company. We were not daunted by the rainy days as the cabin supplied all our needs and more. My favorite spot was the claw foot tub upstairs in the loft bedroom , nothing to do but soak relax and daydream with the glorious cedar trees watching from outside!
I would recommend this spot highly for a couple wanting to get away together and just be.
The cabin kitchen is well equipped . We will return to this magical space.
