Unique mountain getaway - beautiful views, close to amenities
Up, up, and ahhhhhway! Perched on a beautiful mountainside, our cute little octagonal piece of heaven takes you to the treetops. Inside you'll be taken to where rustic meets refined and creative meets comfortable. Enjoy our master bedroom with a queen canopy bed which seems to blend right into the woods that surround it. Need a king bed? We transform the second bedroom into two twins or a comfy king with a 3 inch memory foam topper. Turn on the virtual flames of our little electric space heater and snuggle in for a snooze with the black bears. Take in panoramic sunrise views with your morning cup of coffee through floor to ceiling windows or grab a book from our little library and chill out on our wraparound porch. After a day of taking in the Big Canoe experience, settle in with the family and watch a DVD or VHS tape in our cozy living room or play a board game from our game collection. We hope you will feel relaxed, refreshed, and inspired.

Better even than expected!
The property was exactly like the photos. The landlords were great and very responsive whenever we had a question. The house was equipped with everything we needed. Our grandsons loved the "treehouse" and there special bedroom. We would highly recommend staying here!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the little octagon treehouse. Extremely clean and very comfortable. It is in a great location to the fitness center and park area. A trailhead to many of the hikes is located there at the fitness center so that was even more convenient for us since most of our time outdoors was spent on the trails.
We had to contact the owners upon arrival because we got turned around trying to locate the house - but they were so friendly and helpful. (Follow the directions the owners supply - we got into the gate and followed a map given by Big Canoe.) We got back on track in a jiff! Would highly recommend this little gem to anyone wanting to experience a beautiful mountain getaway. Thank you!!
Great location close-in to the Clubhouse and south entrance
If you are able-bodied (to climb the railroad-tie-type steps outside, with no handrail), this "TreeTopper" is for you. It's well-stocked, and nicely furnished. The owners respond to messages faster than I have any right to expect. Great communication, and great view.
Note: Google Maps & Apple Maps will not show the correct location. MapQuest will (!). Ask at the gate, they'll give you a paper map with a highlight route. From the south entrance: left at the third Stop sign, then immediate right (a one-way lane). It's about the fourth unit on the left.
What a wonderful Weekend!
My stay was a Girl's Weekend and we had a great time. The cabin is beautiful, well equipped and decorated so nicely. The owners, David and Laura, are fantastic. They go out of their way to communicate with you to ensure you have a great stay. The cabin is located in Big Canoe in a gated community that has tons of access to amenities. I look forward to returning. Only suggestion would be a small step stool to get into the bed. Us shorter people with bad knees have difficulty but it didn't effect my ability to rest and enjoy the cozy bed. I highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review:-). The queen bed is indeed a little taller with the thick mattress. We appreciate your thoughtful suggestion about the step stool. We plan to add one in the immediate future:-)
Quiet and quaint in Big Canoe
Clean and comfortable, this cabin allowed us to enjoy all of the amenities of Big Canoe and the beauty of the nature preserve. The owners were always polite and quick to respond if any questions arose.
Definitely recommend this little round cabin as a quiet getaway in the mountains.
We concur with past reviews. The owners were very responsive and easy to communicate with.
