There is a fairly strong cell signal here and there is a 39' Hi-def TV complete with Dish-network service.

Disappointed...but not unpleasant.

  • 3 of 5

Pictures are misleading not as spacious as they make house appear, or as neat and clean. Unless you are a hiker forget getting to the riverbank behind the house rock and steep drop down make it nearly impossible for your average person. Monacan Park while pretty there is no swimming and very murky water, fishing lines kept getting caught on things in the river. Would be nice for a boating though. Loved the country store, convenient and good food...

Owner's Response: Judy, Thanks for your feedback, We strive to insure accuracy and desire our gests have an enjoyable stay. The trail down to the River is a bit long and is downhill (about 350 yards). There is good fishing off the dock down there. Especially for Catfish on the bottom of this deep section of the river. Thanks again and we will insure our cleaning crew stays on top of everything this Fall Season.

Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

If you want a quiet and relaxing place surrounded by trees, this is the place for you. The cabin is well stocked with everything except groceries. The walk to the river is steep but if you are adventurous and younger than us, you will find the river beautiful in the fall. This area is close to town and we did several day trips to enjoy the history of this wonderful state.

We found it peaceful and place to rest up from life.

We had a wonderful time here. We found it restful and healing after the passing of husband and father Irvan. We saw 2 does and 3 spotted fawns in the woods. Thanks,Sharon&Charity

Relaxing secluded location among the trees

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was such a treat and worked out great for my granddaughter's graduation. We all enjoyed the cabin and location. We even had the resident deer greet us when we arrived....a real treat for me. Everything was as described and we appreciated all the conveniences. Wish the weather had cooperated so that we could have enjoyed a much anticipated evening around the fire.

Our stay was a very positive experience. Thanks.
