Very nice, well-appointed cabin with electricity, fridge, toaster, 2 coffee makers, electric heater, vacuum and more. Everything is essentially in new condition. What is not yet listed by the host Paul is that there is also a covered BBQ area with picnic table and a stone fireplace, extra bench that has recently been constructed. The river runs fast (Memorial weekend) and deep, so I would not recommend this to a family with young children, but my partner and I give this two thumbs up for those who want to glam camp. ;-)
hi just wanted to say how lovely it was at your cabin. everything went well and it is a top notch cabin-- would like to come back soon. Extremely jprivate and calm. cutest little cabin in the woods by the river. my dog loved it and roamed all the time. I would completely recommend this cabin
Our stay was far beyond anything we could have hoped for. It is the perfect get away for anyone looking to unplug and just relax by an amazing river view. The cabin is exactly what you need, and is kept up very well. Pair that with a covered cooking and eating area and you have the best place for a relaxing trip.
We just got home from our quick trip to the Iron Horse River cabin, and we had a fantastic time. I took my mom and our pups for a little trip over the holiday weekend to relax before the school year started and it was exactly what we hoped and expected. It was very private, quite and just the most beautiful little spot on the Movie River. Your friends that were visiting were just so sweet and we really enjoyed chatting with them. We had a fantastic time, thank you Paul.
Paul truly has created a special place. I was lucky enough to be able to snag the cabin not even 24 hours before I arrived. The cabin is perfect-not too much, yet at the same time wonderfully functional. You could easily fit 6 people into the cabin. One of my favorite features were the beautiful, massive windows that not only provided wonderful natural light but truly panoramic views of the forested surrounding area. Paul's cabin and the water spigot is only a short 3 minute walk away, yet when at the cabin, you cannot hear or see his cabin. Do be warned- though it is sort of a glamping experience since it is a cabin, make sure to still bring your own pots and pans. There is plenty of basics available, but it never hurts to be prepared. The area itself is spectacularly beautiful and is literally 1 mile away from Canada, so bring your passport! I had fun driving around the area and discovering so many hidden trails. The fall leaves were beautiful and I can't imagine how it looks in the summer. The river is literally right out your door. I cannot wait to return to the cabin and introduce more people to this special place. I also can't wait to see what Paul adds to the cabin because it seems like he is constantly improving to this awesome 15 acre piece of paradise. Thank you Paul for a relaxing weekend that helped me recoup from midterms!
