“White Christmas”

Reviewed 28 Dec 2016

My family had an amazing experience and to top it off we woke up to a white Christmas. Thank you so much Ernie!

“Pleasant Retreat”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2016

This is our second time coming back to this cozy, amazing retreat house. We love the weather, the house, the neighborhood, the little hiking trail for the kids to hike. It was such a pleasant, peaceful, rested weekend. Everyone had a great time there and we will definitely come back yearly. Thanks Ernie, the owner, for his kindness and caring to make our short retreat wonderful and relaxing.

“Absolutely amazing!”

Reviewed 25 Feb 2016

Overall an amazing experience! The cabin had plenty of room for all of our guests, it was clean, and well organized. What made the experience even better was how great Ernie was great to work with; he was flexible and quick to respond to emails and any questions. I will definitely return to the cabin again.

“Thanksgiving Family Treat”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2015

A gift for our parents was to have Thanksgiving Dinner at the mountains. A dream my mom & dad said, and I contact Ernie and the date was set. The cabin was perfect and location was great. As soon as we opened the door we got a warm cozy feeling. We were all excited and it was roomy and comfortable setting I couldn't have asked for anything better. We arrived on Wednesday and the next day Thanksgiving day- everyone was up early, breakfast on a light snowy day- we have never seen snow and it was a treat! My dad went outside and spins round and round laughing like a little kid said, "I haven't seen snow since I was a little little". We all were happy and went outside and built a snow-man. Our dinner was perfect, every day was an adventure. The house was perfect with all the amenities needed (which included wi-fi). We will never forget our special dinner this year, in fact most of us agree it will be hard to top off this one. I am glad we got to spend it with our parents alive and well. Thank you, Ernie From the Monarrez Family

This vacation rental has a lot of space for indoor fun for kids and adults. Beds were clean and comfortable. The bedroom on the third floor has a fantastic view of the lustrous trees and the open blue sky. All in all, the place offers a relaxing environment. The owner is very pleasant and courteous.

“Family & Friends Memorial Weekend”

Reviewed 31 May 2015

Ernie was a excellent to deal with. The house was clean, location was perfect and everything was comfortable. Plenty of beds for everyone and no hassle. This is a better alternative to hotels or small cabins specially for large parties. Easy transaction and very friendly owner. We will be back for sure!

“Wonderful, cozy cabin!”

Our church has stayed at this lovely place 3 times, and we are always excited to come back. The place is fully furnished, clean, and spacious. We were so blessed to find this place, and all the memories we had here are truly priceless.

“Awesome rustic cabin”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2015

We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday last weekend in this cabin. We had 24 guests, and one guest is asthmatic and she is very particular with dust, she was impressed on how clean the house is and bedrooms and living rooms are dust free. Housekeepers do a great job. Kitchen area was huge, lot of working areas for cooking. Master bedroom is also huge. My guests and us had an awesome time. We felt rejuvenated after this experience. Located in a cul de sac, peace and quiet abound. We will definitely recommend this cabin to our friends. Mr. Ernie communicates very well too regarding questions and inquiries. Thanks again for accomodating us!
