You need to let the water Heat up again in the Tank for more hot water if multiple people are taking showers around the same time.

Amazing place
We loved the place! Very clean, well stocked and comfortable. We felt at one with nature and with the convenience of a well designed house. Outdoor space was a great bonus, especially the grill and fire pit. Guest Wifi for cell phone wasn't working but the place was excellent in every other respect.

Nice house but no hot tub.
Small, cozy house and beautiful property, but hot tub was not functioning. While the owner returned text messages, there was no effort to explore what the problem was or potentially fix it. There are many similar rentals in the area, but we booked this one because my family was very excited to relax in the hot tub each day. It's a shame, because otherwise everything was very nice.

Great experience!
We loved staying in Gerard’s cabin! He’s truly thought of everything a guest could need. He responded quickly whenever I reached out with a question. We enjoyed cooking our meals in the kitchen and relaxing by the fire. This is the perfect spot for a peaceful getaway.

If you are looking for a peaceful, cozy, secluded cabin with everything you could possibly want or need...LOOK NO MORE....THIS PLACE IS PERFECT!!! Gerard (the owner) really has thought of everything. He was a fabulous host and was very accommodating. The cabin is secluded, has a huge yard and is surrounded by beautiful trees. You really do feel like you have the whole woods to yourself. And when I say this place has everything, I mean everything! There are a couple different lounge set ups in the yard, a hammock, a BBQ, volleyball/badminton net with everything you need to play, jacuzzi, outdoor shower and fire pit with wood already chopped and easily accessible. During the day, our dogs and us loved running around the yard and exploring the surrounding woods. It was beautiful to see all the fall leaf colors and tons of different wild mushrooms. And our evenings were perfect also. What is better than stargazing while relaxing in the jacuzzi with a fire in the fire pit? The inside of the cabin was cozy and clean and had all the necessary essentials and more. It rained one of the days that we were there but we cozied up to the wood burning stove and played board games that Gerard supplied and then watched movies on the large TV that had most of the apps and excellent surround sound. We took a couple of trips to the small town. The crystal store in the town was amazing if you are into rocks and crystals. And there are many great hiking spots nearby. Sams Point, Verkeerderkill Falls and the Ice Caves are a must if you enjoy hiking. Our trip was perfect and exactly what we were hoping for. We really couldn't have had a better stay. We will definitely stay here again in the future. Thank you for everything, Gerard!

We loved this place! Close proximity to beautiful hikes. It was nice to come back from hiking and use the hot tub and fire pit. Very clean too. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a weekend away.

Amazing spot! Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back. I love the location the most, felt like you had the whole woods to yourself, so relaxing. And the host was very responsive. Also loved how dog friendly it was while at the same time being super clean!
