Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for our wonderful stay. Everything was very clean. We had plenty of clean towels for the week. The extra pillows were a nice touch too. We were so happy to find the coffee that you provided because we forgot ours. The weather was mild so we enjoyed the deck and grill. Thank you for being there when we got lost on the wine trail. We will be back again.

Great place for group or family

  • 5 of 5

Very roomy. the bath towels were like you would find at a nice hotel. Only downside was only one bathroom for the five of us. A half bath would be a nice addition. Overall a great value. With a great view. Perfect place for a group of friends on the wine trail.

Very clean and well maintained

Amazing cabin

  • 5 of 5

House is in a perfect location from wineries and hiking. Beautiful setting. House comes with all the amenities needed. Owners were also very easy to work with. Only recommendations: tv did not work for local channels or dish. That could be a user error though. Instructions would be nice. Also, locks for the bedroom doors would be nice. Given the setup of the home I recommend a pet friendly rental. But that is the owners call. All-in-all, highly recommend staying here!

Had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at this cabin! Loved the hot tub, the views...The owners even got us in touch with 2 ladies to come to the cabin to give us a couple's massage that was amazing! The only thing I didn't like was some of the weird, creepy noises. Haha. We are from the city though, so I suppose I was spooked already, being out there, just the 2 of us. The only thing I would have added was blinds to the back glass doors. Just creeped me out at night, not being able to see out back.

But everything else was perfect. :)

Restful, comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the house was set up so thoughtfully. Plenty of towels and blankets!

The location was beautiful and secluded -- we had a perfect time.

Only one thing: the wifi and also data coverage is spotty -- that's fine, but it might be good to provide a hard copy of your number, and basic information (check out time, etc) in the house. We weren't able to access that information the morning of, and kind of guessed around at how to close up. Hope we did ok!

We definitely want to come back :-)
