A Stay to remember and enjoy time and time again.
Life is meant to be lived. Let us enjoy the journey and take it to where it leads us. May it lead us to Faith, Hope and Love. Especially that of love. May it guide us to sharing souls and moments to remember with humility and gratitude. Let us enjoy the journey. Let us build memories together. ~Seth
Seth purchased this House in 2017

Just was beautiful place. It was perfect place to get ready for my wedding and stay on our wedding night!
Everything was as advertised!
Had a great time and enjoyed the stay.
Beautiful setting, clean place
Had a great stay at this beautiful home, great setting and super clean place.
Great Guests, Kevin and friends. He and they are welcome back anytime....
Thank you to Seth for our nice stay. The heater was turned on for our arrival Friday night, and the house was very neat and clean. There were ample supplies for bathroom amenities and a fully stocked kitchen for cooking needs.
The bedroom was comfortable and although it's heated by an electric stove, it was quite toasty and warm.
The hot tub cover needs to be updated but it's a good size hot tub for use.
Overall, it was a place for a quick getaway. I'd recommend staying here again.
Kimberly and her husband stayed at The Lovely Cabin House while celebrating. They were excellent guests, very kind and communicated well. They left the place tidy and have commented they will return. They are indeed welcome back anytime.
Wonderful place at half the price!
Advertisement needs to be changed. Beautiful but NOT private & secluded like it claims.
The main complaint that needs to be addressed on the advertisement is that the renter is not actually getting the "entire house" & it's not that private. I emailed the owner prior to making payment on the place to confirm that indeed we would have the "entire house" to ourselves & that he lived in a different house on the property and may be out working on the property at times. Otherwise, it was completely private. WRONG! The garage is actually totally off limits to guests because it's used as a studio for the owner's friend's to "couch surf". Upon arrival, we were met with the owner and his friend who was "couch surfing". It was unclear if she was actually staying in the garage or if they just had the garage door open for something else. After hearing voices through the walls & noticing her car was still in the driveway, I wrote the owner asking if she was staying in there. Without a direct answer, he said he would address our privacy and noise concerns immediately. This issue was not addressed. Both nights we could hear loud snores through the floor while we were in bed. The next afternoon, the "couch surfer" from the garage came and knocked on our door because she wanted to get a bottle of wine from inside the house. A few hours later, a man and his dog arrived in the small cabin/shack in direct view of the "private & secluded" hot tub. We were told this man and his wife actually live in the small building there. This all would have been fine if it had been clearly defined in both the advertisement online & in my email correspondence prior to booking. Instead, I feel jipped and scammed.
The inside space itself is really classy and beautiful. However, it was hard to stay warm as the main source of heat were electric heaters that worked inefficiently for the size of the space. The wood burning stove didn't put out much heat once we finally got it going with what little, wet kindling we were given. Since it was raining and the rest of the wood outside was wet we had to make due with what we had.
The hot tub was nice while it worked. The second day, it started leaking out water from the bottom of the filter and then shut itself off. The water level dropped quite a bit and was dirty. Luckily, the inside jacuzzi tub is fantastic!
The recycling hadn't been taken out from the previous guest and was half full of empty Coors light cans that made the cabinet smelly. Nice big kitchen though.
Technically, there's only 1 master suite.
There is much I can say about this guest but will do my best to limit such narration and extend grace while focusing on being appropriate and kind....
Heidi was pleasant at first meeting but soon became brazen with odd behavior. She messaged me several times at regular intervals to "communicate" her "needs". Interesting. I have never encountered a "Reiki Master" to be mean.
In the obverse, I found someone who no matter the situation, wether ideal or wanting, would complain if they didn't find everything exact or indeed perfect.
Aside from that, some of what she said is true and being addressed.... The "couch surfer" is a person with feelings and is downtrodden. My FRIEND is a guest and deserves respect like any other. She has real needs and is hard pressed to find other arrangements. The Sonoma area also needs friends....
The lower level studio is a guest area separate from the main house. It is used for the temporary stay of those in need and for myself on occasions where being on the property is essential. This is temporary and will be amended.
The Hot Tub works well when used properly. I detail the importance of only using the "Timed Jets" option and not to adjust the Temp setting. Increasing the temperature puts strain on the heating element and makes it too hot for all guests. Furthermore, there has been consistent snow and rain that reduces the overall enjoyment of the Hot Tub and can cause an overflow of water. This is being addressed with an extra covering and possibly a gazebo.
Guests generally enjoy the overall size and amenities of the Lovely Cabin House. The beds are very comfortable and it is clean and accommodating. It is peaceful, quite and has lakes, scenic views and hiking/biking trails nearby.
Most guests stay at the Lovely Cabin House and are pleased. Read reviews from other vacation rental companies outside of Home Away and its subsidies.
NOTE: I am constantly fine tuning the Deluxe Cabin House as well as the experience and enjoyment of my guests while keeping the price at a minimum. However, prices will increase with greater care of this rare premium place.
Thank you and enjoy every moment.... "It comes to this: "Faith, Hope and Love. The greatest of these is Love..."
Cabin was nice. No central air. Rooms were hot.
The instructions from the owner were not to park on patio in front of house and not in front of garage. There were 4 of the owners vehicles parked in and around the designated parking area. The cabin is at the bottom of a steep driveway. With two vehicles it was nearly impossible to park or manuever to get out. Also someone whom I assume is the caretaker was in and out of the garage. It was definitely not very private feeling.
Most guests who stay at the Cabin House in the TVE are very pleased. Read reviews on other vacation rental sites.
There are more positive things about the stay here than negative. Guests should mention them when leaving reviews. They generally enjoy the size and amenities of the cabin house. The beds are very comfortable and it is clean and accommodating. It is peaceful, quite and has lakes, scenic views and hiking and biking trails nearby. This is a place that costs half the price for what you get to comparably priced places.
It is well worth a stay....guarantied.
