We booked this cabin as a family trip, not only to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary, but also to celebrate the return of one son from Afghanistan and to prepare for the departure of another to Iraq. Our goal was family bonding in a beautiful setting. The cabin appears exactly as advertised in the photos, plus some! The view can't be beat. There is an additional kitchenette downstairs along with a wood stove. We were charmed by the kitchen and the contents of the cupboards, to include a wide range of cooking staples. The entire cabin is well stocked with blankets, books, candles, dvds, games, we even found sun hats in the closet and outdoor gear in the garage. The cabin is designed for comfort and it delivered, there was plenty of room and the loft was a huge hit. When we had trouble with ice on the driveway, arrangements were immediately made to have it addressed.
My youngest son proposed to his fiancé on the dock at sunset, and in that setting, of course she accepted - so we all have a wedding to plan while he serves in Iraq. We definitely intend to return, and our friends have all asked for the rental information as they were as charmed by our experience as we were.
This beautiful log cabin has plenty of bedrooms and lots of space for a large group to spread out. The cabin is set up like a home away from home. The kitchen has almost everything you can imagine. It is very clean and well maintained and extremely comfortable. We enjoyed the family games available and made good use of the deck and barbecue for our family dinners.
The dock is the highlight with its stunning views. The lakeside also provided us with a little beach which we swam and launched our kayak from, great fun. The only downside is the beach access as we had to cross a busy highway and then walk down a narrow path which might be tricky for anyone with mobility issues.
We didn't meet the owner but she was very responsive to any of our questions. We were a little daunted by all the rules but that aside it was a great place to stay.
