You’ll be out in the country and up a long gravel road, you can count on privacy! This home has free high-speed Internet and free long distance calling across the US. We’re absolutely surrounded by US Forest Service land, so you never know what kind of wildlife you’ll spot meandering across the property. You're going to be very comfortable and not want to leave but if you do leave the home you'll find plenty to do in the surrounding area like hiking, gem mining, antiquing and much more.

Amazing views! Amazing deck!

  • 5 of 5

Nice rental. Comfortable beds and clean. I would recommend an AWD vehicle for this drive. It is gorgeous but is a bit treacherous with a 2WD. The creek crossings were my favorite part of the drive.

Owner's Response: I love crossing the creeks too! Thank you for taking such good care of the home, and I understand, that's a real driveway, right?

Peaceful and relaxing - exactly what we needed

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable home and gorgeous views. The deck was the most used part of the house during our stay! Close enough to anything we needed, but far enough to be "away from it all".

Fall Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Even though we had a few small problems, we still had a great time, hated to leave. We had about 6 deer visit us. The view was beautiful, different every day. Very private but close to town. The driveway is a little hairy but you get used to it. Cashes BBQ is very yummy and not far from the cabin. I would recommend this cabin and we would stay again. Thanks for opening your cabin to us!
