Exactly what i needed

Kathy was a great host. The cabin campground was exactly what I was looking for. A quiet, peaceful and simple place in which to chill next to a bonfire. There was plenty of good/ dry firewood available and a nice fire pit.

FYI: There are two separate cabins. The river cabin and the lake cabin. The river cabin is more remote and the lake cabin is close to other properties in the vicinity. Both roads leading to the cabins are unpaved, non-gravel paths which are either grass or dirt/ mud. I'm glad I chose to take my pickup truck instead of my Honda Civic as I may have gotten stuck or bottomed out in route in the various holes. I was greeted by a chipmunk hanging out on the cabin's steps and there were all sorts of wildlife sounds to be heard. I definitely plan to visit again. Thank you Kathy for sharing your property with others. It was much appreciated.

This was perfect for me and my friends who were looking for a last minute area to camp at. The cabin was the perfect size for us and the fire pit and the creek were great.

Don't get me wrong if you like being secluded it is nice but where you put the boats into the river it was blocked by a tree and it was in the end of a cove that the cabin said above so there really wasn't any water the place was beautiful though but you still heard loud radio and motorcycles up and down the highway cabin was nice on the inside the outside is cute but it look like a tree it's smashed in one of the corners they did have a new outhouse which was very nice I would go back and stay if I didn't want to fish and just wanted to camp they are very nice people so don't let this review stop you from going to check it out.

Staying at Mirror Lake #1 was delightful. The cabin was clean and the beds comfortable. There was a nice campfire set up with plenty of wood. We loved cooking over the fire and putting up our hammocks. I’d recommend thoroughly checking everyone for ticks, there were ticks found on everyone who went to the river, which isn’t uncommon. All and all it was a lovely weekend

Response from Kathy, the Host, on April 11th, 2021

Yes we always have to check for ticks when we go to the woods. I’ll be out mushroom Hunting soon with long pants and my rubber muck boots on. Along with my hair under a hat for added tick protection. One of the downfalls of the great outdoors. Thanks for visiting Mirror Lake Little Elk primitive cabin.

Very secluded with beautiful autumn views. Bed was quite comfortable. Saw a few blue heron right on the river! Host Katy was super friendly. I will definitely be back!

Great spot and cabin. Raw and rustic as described. Loved the privacy and the space. Great fire pit and yes, unlimited wood!!!!! Stores are 10 minutes away in Rome City if you forget anything. We brought a small char ole grill, I would recommend doing the same. Will camp here again if they’ll have us :)

There was a lot we loved about our stay at the Mirror Lake Cabin by the River! The cabin itself was very clean and secure. The site had everything we expected and needed for an excellent camping weekend, and Kathy was very helpful in answering our questions about local fishing spots and renting a canoe. The biggest issue we had was that we had come in with the assumption that the Mirror Lake Cabin by the River would be next to a river. In reality, the cabin is in a pretty wooded area next to a stagnant, shallow bog. (We had worried about mosquitoes but they were surprisingly mild for the four days we stayed!) There IS a *small* river close by, but to get to it you have to walk about 100 yards east of the cabin and shimmy down a steep bank ridge at the very edge of the property. We tried canoeing down the river, but the weeds were quite thick which made for slow going. We'd absolutely recommend this cabin for the great camping experience we had - but if you're looking for a place to swim/boat/fish in a large river steps from your camp, this isn't it.

What a beautiful place! Kathy didn’t disappoint. The cabin was nice and cozy the site it rested on was amazing. A perfect place to unwind and get back to nature. Relax on the hammock with a good book but don’t forget the bug spray.
