"We rented this cabin for our girls weekend, and we're very excited about the river and outdoor fire pit. The cabin was perfect for the three of us, and the indoor fireplace was an added bonus because it rained the first night we were there. The deck overlooking the river was the best place for breakfast and supper. We we entertained by the birds and squirrels that enjoyed the several bird feeders. Sloan was perfect to work with and the booking process was easy. We always enjoy our time together, but being at this cabin make the weekend even more enjoyable. Finding the cabin can be tricky, even with the written instructions, I suggest using the GPS, we would not have been able to find it without it. And definately go to the store before arriving...makes life a little easier. But it's not a bad ride back to town once you know the way.
There were however a couple things that did put a damper on our excitement . I suspected that there wouldn't be any cell service, but was content with the idea that we would have internet service....just so we could tell our families that we made the trip safely. Trust me, you do not want the everyday distractions to get in the way of the tranquil surroundings. We tried several times while we were there to get the internet running, and it was sketchy at best, but we were able to let our families know we were safe.
The other problem and to us this way a major one...we had to haul our trash out. We did not know about this until we read the note on the fridge door the day we arrived. Thankfully, we didn't have much and thought ok, no big deal, we'll just drop the one bag off . However, the trash drop off is not anywhere near the cabin. In fact, if we hadn't taken a picture of the directions, we would still be looking for it, and it was in the complete opposite directions we needed to go. Once we found it, the facility was locked with a sign on the gate saying that they were closed on Sunday and there would be a heafty fine for leaving trash on the outside of the gate. We ended up hauling that one bag of trash all the way home. This put a huge damper on our excitement of the trip and cabin.
I emailed Sloan after getting home about these concerns, and she was very gracious and wished we had contacted her while we were there. She mentioned that she would starting telling her guests about having to haul their trash. We have an awesome weekend and will keep this cabin on our lists for future girls weekend."
