CABIN/HOUSE DETAILED DESCRIPTION: I DO NOT RENT THIS CABIN ON CRAIG'S LIST!
Glen View Retreat is not like the rest! The cabin/home was completely renovated in 2015, so everything is clean and new. It has the absolutely perfect floor plan to meet the needs of your family or multiple families that want to stay together comfortably! It is also well suited for an adult only weekend with four couples, all of which will have plenty of privacy in their own bedrooms. The home has been designed to please the most discriminating guest who wants a place to relax and enjoy a hassle free vacation. It is not a dated, dark cabin with a closed and cramped floor plan. Our cabin consists of three spacious floors (2,400 sq. ft.) making it an ideal retreat. It offers two separate generously sized living areas - an open concept family room and a game room, on separate floors. There is plenty of room for adults and children to spread out and enjoy. Later, everyone can join together in the large dining area or on the outdoor deck. There is plenty of room and something to do for everyone. Even the dog will love it!
On the 1st floor you will find the super fun game room. The game room features a 7ft Olhausen pool table, an arcade Pac Man machine with 60 additional trademarked games, aside a beautiful leather sofa with a queen size pull out bed and a flat screen TV.

In addition, the garage is another place to unwind and have fun with its foosball & air hockey tables. (There is an additional entrance at the front of the house, but the garage entrance is very convenient for coming in from the snow.
Just off of the kitchen is the beautiful wrap around deck with plenty of new Trex decking. On the deck you will enjoy a lovely outdoor seating area and new gas BBQ grill. In the fenced yard you will find the large Jacuzzi tub that seats 8 adults. The deck area is the perfect extension of the house that can be enjoyed year-round. Nothing is better than sitting in the warm Jacuzzi while the snow falls around you! The fully fenced yard is perfect for your dog too.
Note: We only except fully house-broken dogs with a pet fee of $75 required for the extra cleaning and maintenance. We often hear from our guests that it is difficult to find a nice cabin that excepts dogs. We respect your desire to travel with your dog, PLEASE respect our cabin when bringing along your canine family member.
