Very spacious cabin in a beautiful setting! It was very cold during our visit but the heated cabin remained cozy inside. We communicated with Sue several times prior to our visit and she also greeted us at the front deck when we checked in. She is wonderful, highly responsive, and one of the reason we rated our stay so high. The only drawbacks concerned the listed which stated the cabin had wifi (it does not; instead the wifi is available only at the office which is about 300 yards away). Additionally there is no cell phone signal at the cabin. So, essentially you are in full disconnected mode barring a satellite phone or mobile hotspot. One of the bedrooms had no electrical outlets, which made it unusable for us since we had a few items that we needed to plugin in the bedroom. Fortunately, there were two other bedrooms to choose from, one of which had an outlet that we could use. I know this organization is new to the online booking systems and are working out some kinks, so I'm not going to grade them too hard on these items. Overall, it was a very nice stay and we enjoyed ourselves. We would go back for sure...maybe in the summer when we could enjoy the sprawling property and trails more.
