We had a fantastic time at the cabin. It was well off the beaten path yet connected to trail all across the property. The hosts were fantastic, gave us great directions, answered all my questions, and even provided all the firewood we needed for our stay. The cabin was clean, the kitchen and bathroom were well equipped with all the utensils, bedding and towels we needed. It was a fairly warm weekend and the cabin is equipped with a window AC which definitely came in handy. We're already planning our next trip back.
It was perfect for our needs. Nana and the baby slept inside. The 4 year old slept out in the tent with his dad and Pop Pop. Mom had the house to herself in the city.
FYI. There are two separate bedrooms. And two ACs. There is a microwave. There is both a grill and campfire.
Nice break from the city
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!
