Little Red Cabin In The Woods

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin


About the property

Studio Cabin In Serene Location Minutes From Lake

Rustic studio cabin with full kitchen, bath, two decks and a fire pit. Believe this is one of the cabins moved from the original town site when Detroit Dam was built. This is a cute and quaint cabin, but doesn't have the detail one might expect from a more expensive rental or from someone's personal vacation rental. Simply a peaceful venue to relax after a busy day on the lake or in the mountains. We're less expensive then the hotels in town and offer very nice privacy. Note no wifi or cable TV. Great cell coverage. Smart TV/DVD/VCR and lots of movies.

About Aaron

We own three rental properties in Detroit.

Why Aaron chose Willamette Valley

On dead end road in woods, yet minutes to the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a really simple cabin. Not many amenities other then a studio home environment. Location great on dead end road surrounded by forest with nice private decks. No Wifi or satellite TV. Just TV/VCR/DVD and smart TV. Sits above the city of Detroit, so great access to city, lake, mountains, hotsprings, etc.. Most everyone loves it, but it's not a boutique accommodation - though cute and mountain cabin like. Great value for those not wanting to stay in a local hotel and those wanting some privacy. Think family cabin the woods.

Little Red Cabin In The Woods
average rating of 4.0 based on 4 reviews

It was okay.

  • 3 of 5

This is a cute, small cabin at the end of the road. It looks out over the forest on two sides. The host gave us a better than average deal, and allowed us to stay only one night. He was very accommodating. That being said, here were some things we wish were different. The primary bed was a futon, and was pretty hard. It was stated that the deck was very private. The primary deck is overlooked by the neighbor's driveway and deck. There were no curtains on any of the windows. There is no air conditioning, and when we were there it was very hot. The top surface on the table was buckling and starting to come off. Some big positives are location and atmosphere, Another is the kitchen--it's pretty nice. The pleasant, accommodating owner was another plus.

Quite area tucked into the woods

  • 4 of 5

Quite area tucked in the trees. Front door a bit of a challenge to lock and unlock, but that may have only been an issue due to age and disability. Bed on first floor is a futon so is a little hard to sleep on, but the couch is so comfortable, there is a bed on the second floor (did not use that bed due to have to climb a ladder to access). Still all in all, very restful area, wide selection of movies (and brought my own too), kitchen has all the items you would ever need to prepare meals. Back deck looks over the woods, had visits with a bald eagle and several other types of birds too.
