Amazing accomodations, perfect trip

  • 5 of 5

My group stayed here 2 nights. The home has just about everything you can imagine. The kitchen was fully stocked, with plenty of cooking supplies and tools, giving us plenty of options for how we wanted to cook our meals. We maxed our stay with 12 people, and it was still more than enough. Entertainment was plentiful. There was always a game of pool going on upstairs, and we were able to play background music on the downstairs surround sound system.

Everyone made themselves comfortable at night, with enough sleeping accommodations for everyone. There were no complaints from anyone about their rest. The TVs in each bedroom were a bonus as well!

We made the most of the campfire out back. Weather was a little hard on us, but once the rain stopped our fire was up and going. The hot tub was perfect late in the night as well.

The place was prepared very nicely. Everything was clean and organized. It was very easy to navigate, no issues finding anything we needed. This is my second time in a Lakewood Luxury Cabin. I went in to this trip thinking last trip was hard to beat, but this one blew my expectations out of the water. I would definitely revisit this property again, whether it's with friends or family.

We really enjoyed this cabin! Had everything we needed and the beds were very cozy! We loved the Christmas decorations and the back yard area with the horseshoe, fire pit and hot tub!

OVERALL fairly nice!

  • 4 of 5

I think you might want to have an electrician come make some repairs. Several outlets didn’t function (and the one in the kitchen where the coffee pot is was visibly scorched). Could not find a way to turn on lights at hot tub, some of the outdoor floods either didn’t work (or we couldn’t find the right switch) and the outlet behind the couch was broken. Several of the switches marked “lamps” didn’t appear to do anything, and outdoor lighting (up-light wall washers) never appeared to come on.

I’m all for water conservation but, in my opinion, the shower heads in the master are too stingy to take an invigorating shower.

The last time we stayed, there were implements for roasting marshmallows and hotdogs at the fire pit (the new cover for the firewood was an awesome addition by the way!!) so we did not bring our own this time but they were not found this trip.

The glass front of the fireplace needs cleaned due to soot buildup.

These should be considered MINOR complaints by the way! So here’s the good points otherwise I’m just hyper critical. :)

The cabin is beautiful, clean and extremely cozy. My family loved the trip... it was the second time we’ve stayed at BKS, and we WILL be back!

It’s easy to access, and I love that I can back my truck right up to the back deck to load in and out instead of having to haul baggage up the front steps.

This May sound like a complaint but is not: the day we arrived was pouring rain. I love the sound of rain on the metal roof!!

Check in and out could not be easier!

The kitchen is extremely well appointed, and we love that there was a Christmas tree where we hid some pre-Christmas gifts for the kids while we were there.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much, William, for your comments. We had the maintenance scheduled to change out the lights before your began raining. And, I couldn't let him on that tall ladder in the rain. We now have them changed out. I also saw the build up on the fireplace. We've cleaned it, but the logs need to be changed out and it's been super busy. We will certainly get that corrected. And, I'll make sure we get new skewers for marshmallows! We look forward to your future stay. Oh, I'll also get the electrician out! Happy New Year, my friend! Brenda

Amazing Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from our weekend at Best Kept Secret and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cabin is AMAZING. It's just beautiful. We had two families with four boys ranging from 15 months to 5 years, so we appreciate the minimalist decorations in the house (soooo hard to keep a 15 month old out of 'trinkets'). But, the house is so beautiful with the wood paneling and sleek artwork that it doesn't need anything else.

The room setup is perfect. Both sets of parents got king sized beds and the boys slept in the bunks. We ate outside for dinner and spent every night by the fire for hours. While this is a subdivision of cabins you never felt next to neighbors, and our house backed up to a wooded area so we felt even more secluded. We were a quick drive to the State Park for the train ride and hiking, and then to Hochatown for lunch.

The kitchen has every amenity you need, the grill was used every night (all of which are great quality). The boys loved the horseshoes pit, and just running around in the trees/nature. The house it outfitted with everything you could possibly need.

Three small hiccups for us were; the garbage disposal was very weak and at one point tripped and we had to reset it at the bottom, the house was really really hot and we couldn't figure out how to turn the heat down (I am certain this was just user error), and the technology was difficult to use and instructions for upstairs TV entertainment setup would have been nice (again, probably user error but couldn't figure out how to play a DVD for the kids at night).

This house, and every detail about it, is top quality.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Mandy, for your nice review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at the cabin. Yeah, the thermostats require you to hold in the button for a couple of seconds and then it will change. I wish you would have call me. As for the electronics, I'll need to send a 13 -year-old over to teach us all how to work the We hope you choose to stay again soon! Brenda
