Perfect place with a perfect view!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect little getaway. Amazing loft bedroom and an amazing view from the porch! When I pulled in, the people staying at the cabin next door asked if they could go up on the porch to take some pictures because it had a better view than theirs. Jealous! I think I spent most of my time out there!

It was very private without feeling like you were all alone in the woods somewhere. It's also only about 10 minutes from the park entrance without having to fight through a lot of tourist traffic. I was there the week of Labor Day so it wasn't quite as crowded. Perfect time to go!

I would definitely stay here again!

A Christmas to Remember

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about this cabin during our stay for Christmas! The view was spectacular and private. Mrs. Alice was so sweet and personable. We arrived to a nice Christmas card on the table and a tin of popcorn that went well with our Christmas Eve movie night!

Absolutely love this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in this same cabin two years in a row. Alice Cansler, the owner, is an absolute sweetheart to talk to. She called to check on us after we got there and make sure the cabin met our expectations. It has a gorgeous view and it is located in a very peaceful area. The cabin is beautiful inside and out. We enjoyed the wrap around deck and the hot tub which is in a private corner where you can't see the neighbors. The pool table inside is nice even though it is a little close to the wall on one side. The owners have been kind enough to supply a short pool cue to remedy that situation. The kitchen has pretty much anything you could need as far as utensils and pots and pans. If you are picky about the quality of kitchen ware, you may want to supply some of these things yourself, but I found everything to work just fine for our needs. The drive up to the cabin is adventurous, and 4 wheel drive is helpful if the roads are slick. Overall, we absolutely love this cabin!! It is such a great little getaway! We will be back for a third year next year!!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed the cabin once again, you are correct about the pots and pans, they are due to be changed out and they will be. I am looking forward to your stay again next year. Alice

Hospitality and More

  • 5 of 5

The property was all that was advertised and more - welcoming, quiet, peaceful, yet convenient to any thing you need. And I appreciated the little things that added to the warmth and hospitality - the simple fall decorations, the pool balls racked and ready, even a needle and thread kit in the bathroom drawer ready in case of a needed repair. Thank you for the care given to make so many feel at home.
