Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this cabin and must disagree with the other reviewer. It's only 100 feet up from the main road and is a easy to drive. We loved the all-wood cabin feel with all the bears and accessories. The views from every room are spectacular. Can't wait to go back!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect. Love the lake view. It would have been nice to have the house rules posted and maybe a list of recommendations on restaurants, hiking trails and fun activities in the area available. We will definitely stay again!!

Beautiful cabin, broken hot tub

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, amazing views, but we specifically searched for a cabin with a hot tub. The hot tub never got past 86 degrees. We were there for two nights, called and spoke with the owners and maintenance guy who all seemed genuinely well meaning, however no one ever came out to fix the tub. It was pretty disappointing.

If it wasn't for that, it would have been a great trip.

Owner's Response: Great news! The hot tub now works! It was offline for two days, but has been repaired. Electronic controls in hot tubs are a bit tricky when buttons are pushed too many times, especially when children play with it. We are so glad you enjoyed our cabin and hope you return! Thank you!

Beautiful Cabin with excellent view

  • 5 of 5

My wife, brother, sister in-law, and I stayed in the cabin October 20-22. We couldn't have been more pleased with the cabin and our stay. We would definitely like to stay in this exact location in the future. The view from the top deck is gorgeous and allows you to sit out and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee while you watch the sunrise over the lake. We enjoyed a day on the lake, caught some fish, and hiked some trails. I would certainly recommended this cabin to anyone interested staying just off the lake. The only item would recommend looking into is the hot tub. The temperature never got above 95 degrees. Now we are not "needy" people and still enjoyed using it. But during the cooler months/nights it would be nice to have it a little warmer (minor detail). Overall = Excellent location and cabin! Thank you very much for allowing us to stay and we look forward to returning in the future!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay! Sounds like you did it right too. I wish you had called about the hot tub temperature as we could have asked our caretaker to stop by or talk you through it by phone. Please do next time as we hope you will return!
