Sweet secluded getaway.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay in this cozy little cabin. The compact nature of the cabin gave us a taste of living smaller; which is something we've entertained as a retirement plan. The sauna was a real treat and we made good use of it after our days out on snowmobiles. It's outhouse was pretty nice as far as outhouses go; but I suggest the addition of an electric heated toilet seat for the comfort of winter users. That tiny inconvenience is the only reason the Pondomonium doesn't get a glowing five star rating from us.
