Secluded .. Away from all..!! Yes I mean it..!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled as a group of 4 families, this cabin was best place for our trip.. Secluded, quiet with lots n lots of amenities. We liked the way house is organized - every furniture is wood even the kid's chair. We spent hours playing ping pong and billiards. The patio deck is so spacious and wide it runs the entire stretch of the house. I would recommend a 4x4 for the climb from downhill..

The only cons was

1. No Internet - Wifi was down ( din't mattered as we wished to be disconnected)

2. Pollen Dust ( can't blame the season )

Overall - I would recommend this place.

Amazing & Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very spacious. The drive way is not ideal unless you have a four wheel drive, however I looked at previous reviews and we were prepared and took our truck. There was more than enough space for everyone to sleep comfortable. The cabin was equipped with everything you could think of. The only thing I would suggest is to change the fridge filter more often. We brought water but when leaving I wanted to fill up my cup for the road. I could not do that because the water out of the fridge smelled like rotten eggs. I simply think it was due to the filter not being changed. The basement doesn't have any heat. The temperature got down to around 28-32 and the space heaters were enough in the basement. I have no true complaints! Tom was more than helpful and responded quickly and always answered the phone.

I wanted to surprise my brother for his 50th birthday it was amazing. Tom and Belinda and Belinda's husband Chuck we're so warm and friendly and assisted me with coordinating a great birthday for my brother this cabin is beautiful spacious and very accommodating we drove 12 hours to get there and it was hours well worth it. Belinda is an angel in disguise Thank you Tom Belinda and Chuck for your hospitality. This will be a family memory we would never forget. And we plan on coming back soon.

The Reeves family!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and very clean home. This lovely place accommodated thirteen ladies with plenty of space! Owner, Mr Ribble was extremely quick in responding to emails and providing information on the area. Don't be taken back by the narrow and somewhat steep driveway as it is well maintained and the only traffic was the cars we were in. If you have an extremely large gathering there is a home directly across the parking area that would be perfect if you need two homes. Overall very very clean and private. We enjoyed our stay immensely!
