"My wife, who is a busy attorney, and I, a Federal Wildlife Officer (Game Warden), stayed at the Smith's house this past week. We usually try to take a cruise this time of year, but this time we wanted to try something different and boy were we glad we did. We cannot say enough good things about our stay.
The cabin itself was absolutely beautiful!!! When we first walked in we were taken aback by its size, but also amazed by how it did not lose its charm with its size. The decor was country with a bear theme which was found throughout the house (who doesn't love bears). Our two dogs, Luther and Annie, loved to sleep next to the gas fireplace in their beds after long days of hiking the area’s beautiful trails (Turtletown falls was our favorite hike). The pinball machine and pool table were nice touches to end our days with some friendly competition.
The location of the cabin was perfect. Close enough to town to enjoy what it has to offer in entertainment, restaurants, and other amenities while still giving us the disconnect we both needed. Additionally, the location of the cabin allowed easy access to the lake, hiking, and all around leave watching.
Shellie, the proprietor of the cabin, was fantastic to work with. We had an issue with our reservation which was completely our fault and she was both understanding and accommodating allowing us to stay an extra night at great inconvenience to her professional cleaning crew. You could really tell through our interactions with her that she and her family loved and cared for the cabin.
Whether you are planning a family retreat or just want to escape for a while we highly recommend this property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to return…Thanks, Shellie!!!!"
