Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I literally can't think of one negative thing about this place. Everything was amazing from the location to having everything you need, loved the fenced yard for my dogs, loved relaxing in the clean hot tub, watching movies on the tv. Can't wait to stay here again!

Clean. Quiet. Cozy. Great fireplace and hot tub. Well stocked kitchen and grill area.

  • 4 of 5

While I cooked every meal, great restaurants minutes away. Relaxing by fireplace and in hot tub was great...but casinos and horseback riding were minutes away! Helpful property contacts. Reasonable. Lovely getaway. My husband had a very happy birthday.

Rustic and charming

  • 4 of 5

Great little rustic cabin close to lake and stores. I don't recommend it for toddlers as the stairs to the loft are steep. I was initially concerned because there were reviews that talked about mice but I saw no evidence of mice and food in cabin was sealed and kitchen was clean. A romantic little cabin. My favorite part is the hot tub that's right outside of the bathroom.in summary, it's not fancy but it is charming and cozy and I would stay there again for sure.

A very fun and unique place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We were only able to stay at the cabin for one weekend, but it was the perfect relaxing get away for us. We couldn’t understand how anybody could give the cabin a bad rating. It was beautifully furnished and clean, but still had that rustic quality we were looking for. Everything is close and the lake is only a short walk away. We hope to go back and stay longer next time.
