Our Memorial Day in the mountains
We fully enjoyed our experience at the Fernweh Cabin it was amazing and very secluded
My husband and I had a wonderful time getting away from it all at this beautiful cabin with all the amenities you could want. The easy access to the river front made this trip for us. And nothing like a dip in the hot tub after some hiking.
