About Rick and Teresa Maurmann

We have been married since 2005. We have three kids and 2 Huskies. We love them all very much! My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. We decided that life is too short to work so much and rarely spend family time together. We found our cabin in October 2007.

Rick and Teresa Maurmann purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Rick and Teresa Maurmann chose Detroit

Mostly for the Lake. But it now goes deeper than that. It is an oasis of calm, grounding and recharging for everyone in the family including the dogs.

What makes this cabin unique

It's endless. The best times for my wife and I is in the snow. Turn on the gas fireplace. Grab a book and snuggle up. Napping and reading all day with snacks and good conversation. The kids love any adventure outside. Walking around town, going to the lake or exploring the woods. We are just a few minutes to swimming, snow skiing, hiking and the hot springs or hanging out in the hot tub placed in the middle of our private forest.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I can't express enough how much we loved staying in this cabin! It was exactly what we were wanting for a relaxing weekend away from Portland. There was a manual in the cabin to go over all arrival/departing instructions, along with several pamphlets and books to find activities in the area while staying here. The hot tub was a huge bonus - it was one of the many reasons why we wanted to stay here! We also loved the movie and game selection they provided.

The clean-up wasn't as bad as I thought it would be based off the other reviews, just give yourself enough time to get the towel laundry done before leaving. I actually appreciated getting to clean the cabin so it looks great for the next guests; just as it was for us when we arrived!

If you're looking for a place to getaway from the city and enjoy some peace and quite, this is the perfect cabin for any occasion! Thank you both for letting us enjoy your beautiful place!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great and thoughtful review. You took the essence of our intent and that is to provide an experience of a bed n breakfast without owners hanging around. We loved that you focused on all that we have to offer and then some. We want to create a get a away where vacationers experience the necessities, home comforts and a “vacation” where everything is provided to you. Your feedback on clean up is right on! Most vacation rentals charge a cleaning fee and we don’t want to do that! Our belief is if you stay in a our home, leave it how you found it and even better, because you want the next guests to walk in and say “wow, I could just kick off my shoes off now!” Thank you!

Beautiful place, wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our quiet stay at Tres bien. The cabin was beautiful and in a great location. The hot tub was well maintained and wonderfully relaxing. We were a little bummed that the gas stove was not working, but the heater worked quite well.

The steps leading down to the cabin entrance are a little rough. Even with a flashlight, our arrival after dark made for a little adventure carrying our things in.

Overall, this place is very clean, the kitchen fully stocked, and the area was beautiful. Tres Bien was the perfect spot for our New Year's vacation! Thank you Rick and Teresa

Charming place to stay in the winter, would totally recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our three nights here. Arriving on Christmas day, we decided we wanted to have a "cabin" like experience in the woods for the day of Christmas and my birthday which followed up on the 27th. My significant other and I planned a ski trip to Mount Hoodoo, and this cabin was the perfect place to come home to retreat to. You simply can't find a place like this around Mount Hoodoo without paying double the price. The hot tub was a huge reason why we booked; it was well maintained, clean, and fresh, something we are very grateful for. We've had bad experiences with hot tubs through Homeaway in the past (to the point of needing medical attention), so this was a huge relief. Thank you Rick and Teresa for keeping the tub so squeaky clean and perfect for travelers!

Concerning the cabin itself: It was absolutely lovely to arrive to it so covered in thick snow. It looked like a little hobbit abode! Throughout the days/nights the snow would drop down from the old growth trees and loudly "plop" on the roof every five minutes, which was kind of a magical experience. The inside was quaint, humble, comfortable, and truly felt like a hidden cabin in the woods (even with having neighbors, its not very noticeable). Kitchen was well stocked, and I was able to cook up an entire Christmas dinner with the tools that were available. I also loved the touch of what appeared to be freshly picked herbs in little canisters. Two types of basil (including purple) and oregano. Clearly they came from a garden and were not store bought, thank you! Avocado oil was also available, which was awesome. We are super health conscious so all the healthy additions were a pleasant surprise. The bed was ultra comfortable and soft. And the tall, large cathedral windows offered a beautiful view of the surrounding old growth trees.

The only down side to the cabin is that the highway traffic is very loud, even into the night. Still, it was lovely to relax in the hot tub at night and look up at the silhouetted trees against the night sky. Cleaning to the point of getting it ready for the next tenants was a little over bearing, as we didn't have a very leisurely check out morning as a result. It took almost 3 hours to clean it to the standards asked of us, and my SO felt like he should have been paid for the work rather than in reverse. With a price this high, its difficult to cover all bases but I managed it, even though it took up the entire morning. Thanks for everything!

Owner's Response: Hi Angela, Thank you for the lovely review. I am so happy that all your concerns when you were considering our cabin didn't end up being an issue. Funny you mention the highway noise, I was there this past week woke up in the middle of the night and noticed how dead quiet it was and especially highway noise. It is so hit and miss on how busy Hwy 22 can be but I get it. I have experienced the same highway noise and have come to liken it to the waves of the ocean and just part of the experience. As for the cleaning, I soooo appreciate the time and effort you made to clean after your stay and have it move in ready for the next guests. Our goal is to NEVER have to charge a cleaning fee like MOST vacation rentals do and in this pursuit it is hit or miss on who actually takes time to clean like you did and those who kinda of "swipe it clean" making it presentable. My standards are like yours but the general public do not hold the same regard unfortunately. Because we do not live in town and finding house cleaning help in Detroit has been a challenge for now this is the best way to handle the cleaning issue. So please know I appreciate your efforts and most generally people are taking 1-2 hours to clean and do the shut down. It does take a bit more in the winter due to having to turn off the water and prep the cabin for winter safety. Also on this matter most other vacation rental owners have a check out of 11 or 12 in the morning and I have set it to 3 pm to give you that "leisure" time to clean after your stay. Thank you for the comments on the details such as "healthy food" options and all the lovely comments on the cabin itself and the hot tub. We do grow our own herbs and we are happy that you appreciated the soft touches of "home" that we try to provide. We strive to make this a B&B without the "hosts" hanging out with you and we are glad you chose our sweet cabin for your get away! Teresa & Rick

Located on Detroit Lake this small town buzzes with activity in the spring ramping up to summer fun! Then in autumn falling quiet to winter snows and some rowdy storms that pass through the Cascades. Enjoy the Lake with two Marinas, a myriad of restaurants and three grocery stores. Check out the close by activities at the Insider Guide Link for other summer and winter activities.
