Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 20 gathered to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary...8 adults and 12 children from ages 13 down to 2. The house was large enough for all to be together or spread out. The view from the front porch rockers was lovely. The two stoves and two refrigerators were a great help in feeding our crowd. Picture taking on the stone step ruins was lots of fun. The kids loved watching the rabbits play in the front yard. Many good memories were made by all...a celebration indeed.

All of the detailed instructions sent by Ford made for an easy arrival and departure. We all wished that we could have 'Lingered Longer". Maybe we can return again in the future...Hope so!!

We did Linger Longer

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time and very much enjoyed this house. Beautiful views, comfortable clean bedrooms. Everyone had a full bathroom. Our favorite place, though, was that porch!

Great deal, fantastic memories.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this property as part of a marathon weekend where 17 close friends and family joined us to celebrate our wedding and college graduation. It was the perfect setting for us to feel relaxed and to enjoy each other despite all the hustle and bustle. The owners were very responsive and easy to deal with; the property itself was clean, comfortable, and scenic. In short, it was our own little piece of heaven to retreat to, much more so than any hotel would ever be able to offer. We highly recommend it to anyone hosting a large family gathering!

Great home for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This property was great for our family reunion of 18 people! There was plenty of sleeping space and room to gather in the common area. Check-in and check-out were easy and carefree, and our contact, Ford Mason, was extremely responsive and provided all the information we needed to get in/out of the home. The home was clean and had everything we needed (other than linens and towels, which we knew going in). I would highly recommend for any weekend retreat!

Excellent service and great house for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We took a group of 20 to the Linger Longer Lodge for spring break and it was more than enough in terms of sleeping space and amenities. The owner of the cabin talked with us multiple times before and during the trip to make sure all of our needs were taken care of and to make sure we knew what we were doing.

I told the owner what we wanted to do while in the the area and he provided trail maps and information on tons of attractions, which were very helpful. There are many trails near the cabin, some you don't even need to drive to. When we originally booked, we were not anticipating snow, since we would be there in March, but it did end up snowing 3 of the 5 days we were there. It was not an issue, but the owner updated us on the weather forecast before we got there and gave us advice on parking in case of a snowstorm.

The cabin itself is very spacious and there was never a problem with being too crowded, even for 20 of us. We ate every meal and played a few games as an entire group and there was seating for everyone. Everything in the house is up to date, and all of the appliances and finishes were nice.

I would definitely recommend this cabin to any group that is looking for a nice, large cabin for any length trip.

A beautiful cabin! Great for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Linger Longer Lodge and enjoyed every minute of it. The cabin was very clean and spacious enough for our large family. It was so nice that each bedroom had its own bathroom, and we loved the large kitchen and great room to gather in. The upper parking lot is tricky but doable once you get the hang of it. We would love to go back soon!
