The Nook: A Spiritual Reset!
The Nook (even though it is cute on its listing) completely exceeded expectations. The hosts have clearly put so much effort into curating and maintaining a warm cabin and cozy experience for their guests. Very close to great hiking and adventuring, and The Nook is well-stocked and so lovingly decorated. We visited in January with snow on the ground and we’re so warm and at home. Hosts were easily accessible and very helpful and kind. We will be back!

Perfect place to recharge
My fiancé and I and our dog stayed here for a couple of nights over New Years Eve. We wanted to disconnect and recharge before the start of the year. This cabin was absolutely perfect for us. The house was clean and beautifully decorated, had plenty of books and games, the kitchen had all the tools we needed to cook, and they even left a few treats for us! The bed was super comfy and there were plenty of blankets. We were never cold. We saw deer walking around the house and also went on a hike to Deep Creek where there are hot springs! It was amazing. The conditions of the road to/from the house will depend on the weather. It had rained a lot before we arrived which made it a bit more difficult but we went there with a bmw 3 series and managed. We spoke with Abby and her parents and they were such wonderful people. We are looking forward to coming back!

Incredible Thanksgiving weekend at The Nook! Such a dream of a space, we’ll definitely be back. Logistics: -House is well stocked (kitchen supplies, bedding, board games, etc). All you really need to bring is food, a book, and a sweater. -There is now a tv with Roku in the living room. Wifi is great and you should have no issue streaming shows. -This is a beautiful rural setting! The road to the house is definitely a country road, take it slow, 4WD will be absolutely required in the winter but wasn’t necessary when we were there Truly could not have been a better stay. Huge THANKS to our hosts ❤️

WARNING: Risky dirt road!!
I don’t normally write reviews, but this time I felt it was important. The cabin itself is beautiful and very well stocked (spices, dish wear, pots/pans, bathroom has soaps, bubble bath, lotions and shampoos/conditioner). The owners were super friendly, and let us check in a little early. They even had welcome gifts like pretzels, candies, beer, and s. pellegrino. The cabin was clean and had beautiful decor. There is also a portable cuisinart grill in the laundry closet, which was a nice bonus. HOWEVER, the dirt road to get to the cabin was EXTREMELY underplayed. We were scared we were going to pop a tire every time we came in or out. The dirt road is very long, has boulders/rocks in the way, huge potholes, pipes sticking out, and very steep inclines. If you have a little Sudan or an old car I’m not even sure you could make it the 0.4 mi on the dirt road to the cabin (4WD strongly recommend). God forbid if you were heading out there in rain or snow. It was also near impossible to park by the cabin without blocking the road, not to mention a nightmare to turn around to leave. It’s possible the rain this year did a number on the road and it wasn’t this bad before, but now it is in dire need of repair. The road definitely made us not want to leave the cabin as much, which was especially unfortunate considering the cabin doesn’t have a TV. Although I will say exploring the trail behind the cabin was lovely, and so quiet compared to the other more public hikes in the area.

nature lovers love the nook!
I wish I could keep this secret little hideaway just for myself, but the nook deserves all the hype! The cabin is perfectly equipped and everything is thoughtfully placed, you’ll want for nothing except to stay longer. If you are living in the city and wanting to get out into nature the nook will cleanse your soul. we spent the weekend hiking right from the backyard into the woods where there are amazing trails and incredible scenery, enjoying the full kitchen, and birdwatching in the sunroom. the drive up through he mountains is beautiful and there’s so much to check out around the lake and sky forest. If you have a kid i’m sure they will love their own room, it was so cute i almost wanted to sleep in there rather than the master. the place is amazing and will feel like a home away from home, and of course thanks to the awesome host abby! if you are afraid to be a little out of the way in the wilderness fear not the knowledgeable abby is super responsive and totally on top of things. i can’t wait to come back ❤️
