"I would have probably rated this a 4.5 if I could. We stayed for 3 nights in April (enduring several severe thunderstorms with hail) and I still say excellent vacation! This cabin is not fancy, it's a cabin! It's got a great porch, an awesome yard with some absolutely gorgeous views, a wonderful firepit area to hang out around at night, and a beautiful rustic interior with some great luxury touches. Extremely comfortable, you just want to snuggle in and enjoy being away from everything. But you still have so many of the comforts of home. We watched a movie, played cards, listened to music, walked down to the creek (which the kids could not get enough of!). Hearing that hard rain on the tin roof was just what I needed to decompress! The bathroom is lovely, with so many wonderful touches. Yes, the screened in porch has a hole in one of the screens. We figured out after the second day that it is likely from the sweet pup that likes to come visit the cabins guests! He came on over and played with the girls and when we went on the porch, well in him came through that hole! Not a problem at all and he wandered on home when he was done playing. Vicki called us when we were almost to the cabin and let us know there had been an issue with the phone and she had someone come out to fix it. Apparently, they then found an issue with one of the outlets but didn't want to interrupt our stay so we were warned that one of the lamps in the bedroom wasn't working. Well, I found that several lamps didn't work and several outlets were out. While this caused the cabin to be a little dimmer than some may like, it was totally livable and did not throw a kink in our trip. It seems that something may have blown the outlets and the lamps and once she was aware of it, she had already scheduled someone to come out after our trip. We realize that there is always something going on with homes that you can't predict so no harm, no foul! Vicki was very friendly and called to check to make sure we were good. Washer/dryer worked great. If you are hooked on internet, the cabin does have it but it is a bit spotty. There is no cell phone coverage, if that's a big thing for you. Didn't bother us at all and we are pretty cell phone addicted! All in all, this is a place we will definitely come back to, you just can't beat the location and the beauty. Had great meals at Friends Grill (the owners were absolutely wonderful!) and Mama Chole's (good food and lots of it!). Wonderful memories made!"
