Sassafras was exactly what we wanted. Quiet and unplugged yet convenient to local attractions. The bunk beds were perfect for our two children and the loft was great. It’s very apparent that the hosts have no shortage of love for this place. Enjoyed the wood cooktop very much. We would happily stay here again with or without the kids (this would make an excellent romantic retreat). The hosts staged the space wonderfully and it did not go unnoticed. Everything we needed was provided.

This off grid cabin was so cute! The cabin is well kept and very comfortable. It was easy to find and Cristina was super helpful and responsive. We’d love to come back again!

Cozy, private little cottage! Great opportunity to shut off electronics and connect with each other. We had some bumps in the beginning getting everything working but the Cristina was very responsive and helped us!
