The house was beautiful as was the area, perfect
My wife and I visited in February, and there was just a bit of snow on the ground. It was lovely to view from the big windows, and cozy and warm on the inside. The kitchen had a lot of tools so we could make everything we wanted to eat. Just enough room for a lover's getaway. Our only complain was that we had thought we would be staying in the bedroom upstairs, but that is only for the owners, which was unclear on the listing (maybe we didn't read closely enough). But even with that, we would return, and might someday!
Beautiful place to get away!
Everything promised and much more!
Comfortable cute cabin.
Loved our stay at the cabin. Very cozy and loved that the essentials are stocked in the cabin. Paper products, garbage bags, and soaps. Not all places we have stayed have provided these producrs so it was a great surprise to find them. Thank you.
The cabin, the location, the scenery, the accommodations, everything was SO lovely. Except...the bed. It was so uncomfortable we even tried sleeping on the couches for our second night of the stay, not exactly romantic. Two sleepless nights and two trips to the chiropractor when we returned home. The bed was so bad I knocked 2 stars off what would have been a 5 star review. Would absolutely recommend if the mattress were replaced.
Wonderful place! Every review on this one is spot on. I came to enjoy the beautiful fall colors. Priceless. Thank you Kristi for sending extra information on what was going on that weekend. Enjoyed the lift ride at the ski resort.
Only positive impressions about renting this cabin, highly recommend for anyone wanting to get away from busy city life for few days
