Wonderful, A+ cabin!

This cabin was very clean, had enough space for everyone, had plenty of activities for the kids, and the customer service was awesome. I loved how the second day I got a call from the company asking if everything was ok and if we needed anything. I would definitely recommend this cabin and company to others.

Christmas Getaway

The road to the cabin was a little rough in a couple of places, but I have a Jetta so that's to be expected. The view of the trees was great and it's definitely quiet. The cabin was ready with lights on, heat running and hot tub water at temp. The cabin was clean and lots of kitchen and bathroom items. The one problem was a stain of some sort on the bedspread on the top bunk, but besides that the furniture and beds were all good. The gas fireplace was wonderful especially to open our presents in front of on Christmas morning. The tv in the bedroom with the queen bed didn't have satellite so no watching tv in there. The sound of the furnace in the bunk bed room was loud and the tv had to be turned up loud just to hear it. The living room one was great and we didn't use the one in the basement. The pool table in the basement was good, but tight for making a lot of shots so if you take your game seriously this might not be the table for you. The air hockey machine was taped in sections making it impossible for the puck to bounce off and it kept getting stuck on the ends so we didn't play long. The arcade game upstairs is loud and interferes with the watching of tv or radio in the living room. The joystick also has a mind of its own and made some of the games hard to play. The hot tub was great with lots of seating, but we didn't use the jacuzzi in the basement since we had that. We used the dryer for our towels and swimsuits before we left and it worked fine. It's a beautiful cabin all to itself, but with the air hockey and arcade game not working well I was a little upset. That's really the reason I booked this particular place so my son would have a great time. We still had a wonderful Christmas eve and day and for that it was worth the trip.

Dear to My Heart

We rented during Thanksgiving weekend. My sister and her family live in Nashville and we drove in from Buffalo. I’m a little disappointed on how outdated the lodge in regards to the furniture and the old warm out bedding on the beds even the dish towels were worn out. The stool by the video game was broken and set up as if it was ok to sit on. When we did laundry and opened the washer it smelled bad. The knives in the kitchen were so dull I cldnt even cut an onion. The kitchen counters are old stone and I can’t imagine how much bacteria builds up on them. The house was not clean in my opinion and areas u cld tell in corners behind doors and upstairs on the wall side of the bed was very dusty and there was a few cob webs on the ceiling upstairs. I feel the resort brings in enough money to update at least the small things and control the Cleaning or lack there of. Checkout is at 10am which is very inconvenient too and check In is at epm so if the 2 people on the envelope wanting a tip are Cleaning you would think that’s plenty of time to pay attention to detail. When I found the place and saw the pictures and then stepped in the door I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I would be.

Amazing cabin away from it all!!!!

It was amazing and quite. Cabins were far away from one another so it was very secluded. Long drive up a curvy rock filled road but so worth it!!!! Great game room! Bedrooms and bathrooms!!!! No outdoor fire pit but still roared marshmallows at park like grill!!!

We loved it!

What a nice cabin! My family of 5 had plenty of room and enjoyed our stay. The drive up the gravel road was a bit to get used to, but well worth it. The staff sent text messages to make sure we arrived and we felt they were available to us if we needed them, even though we were off property. My kids loved the video game and I even was able to teach my 7 year old how to play pool. Highly recommended - just keep in mind that you will be driving up a steep gravel road one-way to get to the cabin, so if you have a 4x4, it is better :)

Pictures misleading

Beds are horrible, one has a giant dip it. Couches are uncomfortable. Air hockey table doesn't work, and pool table is crammed in a room that's too small to play pool. Online pictures are very misleading.

Deer to my heart

Absolutely beautiful. I was a little disappointed with the view from the porch. Just a wooded area. And the "grill" was a sorry excuse for a grill as well. Park like grill was all it was. Dishes were not clean and in the cupboards dirty. The cabin itself was comfortable and beautiful and had everything else that accommodated our family to a tee
