“Perfect retreat .. just perfect!!”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2013

We went to for a week getaway for Christmas and to give us a wonderful kickstart for our New Year! Our property had the perfect amenities, hot tub, sledding, and relaxation! If I had it my way I would live here! The property managers watched out for us when they thought something was wrong, & they were quick on a repair when we had an issue. They are a wonderful team! Thanks for a wonderful week and for taking care of us so well!!

Reviewed 29 Nov 2009

This cabin was a nice rental. We had some kids and the kids stayed busy the whole time. There was air hockey, ping pong and foosball for them to play with. The house was big enough for them to run up and down the stairs and not need to go outside. The cabin was clean and well stocked with towels.
