Great location, clean, dog friendly.
Pretty much as advertised. The place is small but cozy. The kitchen was well furnished and the dog run and "dog room" seems ideal for dogs. Parking is limited; rough road. But close to town and we had no real complaints, other than the mosquitoes, which were ferocious.
A few suggestions which would have improved our stay: most of the windows didn't have screens and the screens that were there had holes in them. That made them pretty useless in terms of providing any protection from the mosquitoes. Also there were no lamps in the living area so it was impossible to read at night with the overhead lights. We moved a lamp from our bedroom while we were there but the place was dark. Better lighting would be appreciated. So would wifi- we really needed it and it simply isn't there. Cell phone service was limited and really spotty. We're not picky but I probably wouldn't stay here again - I think there are better maintained places in the area for the same money that would accommodate a family better. We had three adults and it worked but I wouldn't come here with any more people than three total. For this price, you shouldn't have to sleep people on air mattesses. .
Good location, pleasant home
This open plan living/dining/kitchen was big enough for 4 adults and a baby and suited us fine, as did the location. Lots of light in that room. The dog facilities are great. The second bedroom holds just one twin bed (there is also a blow-up mattress), and it is dark with only has one small, high window that opens to another room. It was stuffy at night. The house was generally clean enough, though the rug in the living room was not, and we had to vacuum it.
Nice Getaway...But Be Prepared For What You're Getting...
Good...Great Location if you want to get away from almost everything...Verizon has cell signal just fine (though other Carriers have issues I would guess from the other reviews of the property)...Pet friendly includes a great fenced run for the dogs to use without supervision...the property has almost everything you might need in the ways of cooking...there are about 20 movies that you can pick from to watch, but no board games...
Lows...it's in the middle of a wooded area, with a small (apparently stagnant) pond just a stones throw away...there are lots of bugs that hang out in the middle of the woods, and we ended up killing about 50 of the biggest flying ants you've ever seen inside the cabin, along with about a dozen spiders, and even then still felt like they were crawling on us all night......because it's pet-friendly lots of people bring their dogs, but the money you spend on the cleaning fee doesn't do a very good job of getting all of the dog hair taken care of...we brought our non-shedding dogs and still spent about an hour and a half vacuuming up dog hair and getting the tufts of dog-hair that accumulated in the corners of the house, but we couldn't address the couch throws that were covered in dog hair, or the comforter on the bed that had dog hair all over it...and the smell in the "dog room" is almost overwhelming...doesn't appear to be much attempt to clean that room very well...kind of disappointing for the amount of the cleaning fee that they charge...and lastly, there's no near great place to end up hiking with your dogs...but it is a (relatively) short drive to a ton of different mountain hiking locations...
Overall...If you're expecting a cabin in the woods kind of removed from everything, want to bring your dogs, don't have very high cleanliness standards, and don't mind all kinds of bugs, this place might be for you...otherwise, probably not...
Everything is good, but no cell phone service and no landline
Everything is good, except there are no cell phone reception and no landline phone at the house. If something happens- no way to call for help.
This cabin was amazing
It was clean, warm and felt like a home away from home to us. Fairplay is 5 min down the road and Breckenridge only 26 miles north. This was a Christmas we will never forget and it was our first White Christmas!
Wonderful, Relaxing Stay
This property is as described—cozy, well-equipped, and comfortable. It was dog friendly and had all the kitchen doodads and gizmos you could possibly need. The dog run was great for our dogs, and we enjoyed having birdseed provided to feed the birds.
