“Amazing cabin rental experience”

I booked with Hummingbird Cabins online. Contact was easy, and all correspondence was via email.
The instructions to the cabin, and the information provided (security code for the door, and the hot tub) were spot on.

The drive up to the cabin could be hairy, if there is snow or ice on the roads. A 4WD vehicle is recommended, but you could also just use snow chains on your car.

The cabin itself is fairly new, and looks just like the pictures.
It is nice and bright inside, while still providing a "cosy" feel.
It contained all the necessities, and we did not want for anything.
The mattresses felt like low- mid range memory foam, and were firm. (as were the pillows, but that is preference thing)

All of the rooms had flat panel TV's, and basic (non-HD) cable.
The cabin was also supplied with 2 pairs of binoculars, board games, puzzles, cards, and poker chips.

The Wifi is free, unsecured, and of decent speed.

The hot tub is amazing, and was used multiple times daily by myself and others.
(FYI, the rear side, parallel to the fence, has a spot to lie down. It massages your upper and lower back, glutes, and best of all your calves! HEAVEN!!!)

By far the BEST aspect of the cabin is the herds of deer that call Cabin on the Mountain home. They have no fear of humans, and will eat directly from your hand if you feel compelled to do so. ( I WOULD NOT recommend this during the Rutt.)

I purchased some deer corn from Ace, and spread some on the driveway, behind the deck, and the yard as a whole.
The third morning I awoke to 13 deer having breakfast. They stayed throughout the day, and filled their bellies at night.

My girlfriend described the cabin and trip as a whole, as "Magical" given the abundant wild life, and views from the cabin.

I would stay at Cabin on the Mountain again, or ANY Hummingbird cabin, as they are a very professional, well run operation.

Is there a button for "I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this cabin" ????

“AWESOME Cabin...not so pet friendly??”

The location and cabin are AWESOME. The beauty, sounds and creatures are beyond words. Everything you could wish for and more. I would recommend to anyone, just a word of caution for visitors with pets. If your pet would not be comfortable relieving itself on pine needles at a 45 degree angle, then this is not the place for you. After 3 days we were at an Emergency Vet visit @ Franklin Vet Clinic. AMAZING Vet!!!! A few other small cons: TV/Cable did not work entire time (they said everyone's cable didn't work) & the HE washing machine was full of mold so the towels smelled horrible! I notified Hummingbird so hopefully they have addressed the issue. Some items in kitchen drawers had been half eaten by mice. (birthday candles, elmers glue, etc) Besides the Pet stress, it was overall a good visit.
