"We were looking for a place for our family to unplug and spend the New Year's holiday together and this cabin was the perfect spot. It had a well equipped kitchen with a large 6-burner gas stove, convection oven, microwave, farmhouse sink and center island with an additional sink. There's a Keurig coffee maker, so bring pods if you're interested in coffee. Plenty of kitchen utensils, pots/pans/mixing bowls, panini maker, rice cooker etc. This was perfect for us to make meals together and sit down together at the large kitchen table. The cabin layout is spacious yet still feels cozy - perfect for socializing, but also easy to get away for some quiet time if necessary. The upstairs loft has some work out equipment and there is an elliptical in the master first floor bedroom, so it's easy to stay active if the weather doesn't cooperate. The property is located on a peaceful, wooded lot a bit off the main road of Grandview Village. This gave us the feeling of being deep in the woods but we were still close to Fall Creek Fall's State Park, which is great for a nearby day hiking trip. The lot had to be the best in the development - large, private, well-kept and off the beaten path. We saw deer from the back porch every morning and evening. The porch wraps around and is covered so we were able to sit and enjoy the outdoors, even when it was misting rain. The outdoor fire pit is well built and perfect for an evening bonfire. It has an adjustable metal grate for grilling/cooking. You'll need to bring your own wood and probably some grill tools if you plan on outdoor cooking. The indoor main gas fireplace was perfect for the cooler winter weather and added a cozy ambience. The cabin had two main bedrooms with king sized beds and large full baths. There is a double shower and jacuzzi tub in the master BR first floor bath, a stand up shower in the upstairs master, and a tub/shower in the 2nd main floor bathroom. There is a large bonus room with 3 full/queen beds above the garage. There's plenty of floor space, a television and it's slightly detached from the other bedrooms so it's a perfect place for the kiddos to play/sleep without being disturbed. The owner made sure to check in during our stay to be sure everything was going well, which was much appreciated. We had 7 adults and 2 children and were extremely comfortable and couldn't have asked for a better location to spend the holiday together. Definitely would recommend for any season!"
