Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

There was 6 of us that stayed for a day at this beautiful home. Lorie was excellent and responded instantly to all of my questions. I would recommend staying here to anyone who loves the quiet country setting. Everything was very clean and the house had everything we needed as far as blankets, pillows, utensils, firewood etc. Thank you so much and we will be back again!

Terrific but beware of staircase!

A terrific, convenient location. Cabin is neat as a pin and well appointed! We had a wonderful experience but the stairs are something to think about--

Cozy and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Only exception to an enjoyable stay were the lightning- cabin is very dark and the lack of photos to reveal the narrow staircase - in consideration for older individuals or those who may be handicapped .
