Exceeded Expectations

  • 4 of 5

We stayed between Christmas and New Year’s with our son and daughter and my son’s girlfriend. They are in college. The goal was to have an “off the grid” rest with games and reading and laughter and hopefully snow. All of these expectations were met. The cabin was more spacious than we imagined it would be. With five adults it never felt crowded. The kitchen had all the requisite equipment and the dining table made a great game table as well. Enjoyed sitting and watching the snowfall. We even heated up the bbq, and built a snow fire in the pit. The heating was amazing ,and we were never uncomfortable, except the upstairs people who got a little warm in the loft when the hot air rose. Camp Nelson is a charming area and Bark Cabin a real gem.

Recommendations for guests: Bring all sorts of paper products and food storage wraps. We had to go to the store and buy toilet paper on day two. If coming in winter bring a small shovel and chains, or a four wheel drive vehicle. Kind of hairy on one part of the road which we nicknamed the little hill of death right before you reach the cabin. The stairs to the loft are narrow. My husband and I elected to sleep downstairs.

Memorial day get away 2015

  • 4 of 5

My wife ,2 sons and their wives and a sister in law with her son, stayed for 3 days and let me tell you ,it was 5 stars. Their were deer sightings and all the fresh air one can muster !

We reside in San pedro,ca and now I want to retire at Camp Nelson. I thank the great team at VRBO that takes care of the old cabin for the style and character you gave it. We'll rent again soon. One tiny pet peeve, the chess game was missing the white queen. The cabin was already packed with linens and blankets and anything you'll need in the kitchen. Again thank you for having us. Mike Campbell and Family.

Such a quaint little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have been up to Camp Nelson for the last 20 years. I have always loved the bark cabin. We spent Easter there this year and had a blast. The kids had an egg hunt in the back fenced in yard, we roasted marshmallows and made smores, and played corn hole in the front yard. The cabin was very well stocked for cooking my Easter ham. Plenty of linens, and the place was spotless. The agent was very friendly and even came to meet us. Thank you.

We loved Bark Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin and property. We loved it. Comfortable beds. It was nice to have the fence around the backyard to keep the kids close by and loved having the fire pit for our smores. One downside; the bbq wouldn't work. The propane valve seemed to be stuck or frozen shut so we were unable to bbq our hamburgers & hotdogs we brought for dinner. There was also a significant leak under the kitchen sink we were lucky enough to find before damage was done to the floor. The agent was very concerned and came right over to check it out when we called her. We appreciated her concern.
