When they said the cabin was remote, they meant it! The cabin is very clean and well maintained as is the land around it. Cabin is well stocked with most everything you may need.

Lovely area in remote location surrounded by well maintained trails. Had nice time sitting on porch listening to nature sounds. When it rained, the cabin was cozy retreat. We were able to grill outside and cook meals inside. Plenty of space for kids. Nice for my family to spend quality time taking long walks and playing board games.

The cabin is in a nice remote area and away from all technology. It was the perfect weekend trip! So many nice trails around the location. The house is stocked with everything you need so you don’t have to worry about taking too much with you. Would definitely book this location again!

The cabin was small, tidy, and remote. It was perfect for our weekend get away. There were plenty of hiking trails that were just out the door. We had a great time!

Extremely private and quiet. Beautiful setting with trees, wildflowers, and deer. Do bring mosquito repellent even though they aren’t bad.
