"The Whalen's were very kind, prompt and accommodating. We were in town for a wedding, and due to it being bear season and the size of the town, there were not many hotels in the area for us to stay at. So myself, and my immediate family stayed at the cabin. We mostly slept there, as we are the immediate family and of course were busy with wedding stuff, but there was plenty of space for everyone to sleep, hang out, and the setting (woods, lake) were beautiful.
The description of the property was accurate, we had a little hard time getting our GPS to find the exact address, but were able to find it better using the "Deer trail lodge" address.
Typical for a cabin in the woods, there were spider webs, and spiders, for most this is probably not a huge deal, I just have a huge fear of spiders! Ha, ha, I kept my eyes out and my family helped kill them as I pointed them out (about 9 in 3 days).
Because we are from pretty far away, our phone service was not great, so when I wanted to re-look up/remember the instructions for leaving I had a hard time connecting. I should have perhaps printed them before hand and brought a paper copy as I did not see free Wi-Fi available. (I saw in previous comments that the cost was unreasonable to maintain it, totally understanding). There isn't always a way to know if you will have service, so I will take a note in the future to print off this type of stuff, and if you could perhaps post/write something about this, it may help others!
My son wanted to watch one of his DVD's but the DVD on the player upstairs was missing the RCA cables. we used the cables from the play room in the basement and were able to get it to work. also the buttons on the actual DVD player did not work, but luckily there was a remote! so we just used that!
The Whalen's allowed me to check in a little early to drop things off prior to going and helping with wedding stuff (since I was traveling so far), that was greatly appreciated.
I would recommend this property to others, and I felt the cost was reasonable. We talked about coming back in the future to bring the family together at a time where we have more time to enjoy the cabin and the pontoon boat (we didn't get to even go down and see it as we were so busy!!)
We had our rehearsal dinner at The Spot Supper Club. The food was delicious! (prime rib!)
Thank you for everything!"
