We celebrated my mom's 65th birthday at Fairwinds Cabin - we had three families - six adult and three kids. Cabin was very spacious for all of us, had everything you needed - extra pillows, sheets, blow up mattress. They have great backyard with firepit and we walked along paths and crunched leaves as we walked. A short walk to the creek which we all enjoyed - kids splashed in creek, skipped rocks, caught some crawdads/small fish. Very enjoyable family weekend!
I had planned a getaway weekend for myself and some girl friends. We arrived on Friday evening and stayed in the Lodge. The Lodge is three bedrooms, two baths, with a nice great room and a fantastic kitchen. The lodge also has WiFi, a plus! My friends were so surprised about how great the place was, how nice the bedrooms were.
The next day some of my family joined us they too were surprise how nice the place was. The kitchen was like one you would find in a nice home. It had two built in ovens, and a cooktop on a large island. There was also a garbage disposer and a dishwasher. I love to cook and was right at home in that kitchen. There are all the utensil you could possibly need, plates silverware, pots and pans. A amazing amount of items to use. They even had a built in wet bar with a wine cooler!
We did not watch TV our make use of the radio provided. We had too much fun playing the games they had provided. ( if you have never tried Apples to Apples, I recommend it!)
The best thing I can say about the weekend is I hear my family telling each other that they wanted to do the same thing next year. My girlfriends too wanted to do the same thing next year. So like Mc Arthur we will return.
The Lodge was a nice diversion from our daily routines, comfortable and serene. It is the perfect place to decompress and recharge. There was plenty of room for everyone and I loved the earthy theme with the house colors. The kids built campfires out back and roasted marsh mellows and made smores. We cooked out and enjoyed our time. Everything was in like new condition and the Owner and Jamie were very helpful. Couldn't ask for more.
We enjoyed our escape from day to day hassles and had everything we could ask for with the one possible exception of slightly faster wifi. Throw enough tech-types in a cabin all sharing a connection and suddenly streaming music instead of having it saved locally becomes an issue. Aside from that incredibly minor inconvenience, our stay was just what the doctor ordered. Comfortable and cool place to hide during the heat of mid day, nice bit of property to grill and lounge around outside in the evenings.
We looked @ a lot of rentals in & near the Steelville area & decided on: Fair Winds in Cherryville. Alison & Jason were VERY available & hands on owners! We were greeted w/a smile, the home had everything we needed for our family of 8! ( would have LOVED to have had a W/D! ) It was comfortable, pretty, kid friendly & again, I LOVED THE OWNERS! It was service after the rental!!!!! They were easily accessible & eager to help us! I WILL DEFINETLY GO BACK OVER & OVER! FABULOUS EXPERIENCE! The Wms
