“A comfortable, serene, no frills place to stay!!”

Reviewed 28 May 2015

My family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at this cabin. It is right by a road(very little traffic), but still very quiet. It was a wonderful place to sit and relax and just let the kids play and have fun outside. If you like the outdoors and want to be close to it but still within decent driving distance of stores then this is the place for you. And good luck finding a better price!

Owner's reply: D. Bird, Thank you for your review. We are so happy that you loved our place as much as we do. We are looking forward to your next visit with us. Please let us know if there is anything we need to improve on. Jay & Melba

“Great Stay - Just RIght”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2015

We had the pleasure of staying here for 2 nights in April. The cabin was just right for us as it had the amenities we needed and that was a good thing especially for the price. Under 3 miles to Kinkaid boat ramp. We will be back..!

Owner's reply: Craig, We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our cabin. We look forward to your return. Jay & Melba

“This cozy cabin is awesome!”

Reviewed 8 Dec 2013

This cabin was a cozy place for our family of five to meet up for Thanksgiving. The owners were very accommodating and we enjoyed our stay. The cabin has all the conveniences and we made good use of a notebook full of detailed information and directions of the area. Located just enough off the beaten path to be a quiet, restful place, but close enough for anything one could need. We would definitely recommend it to friends and I'm sure we'll go back again.

Owner's reply: Thank you Julee for letting us know that you were happy with your stay. We are so happy that you were able to have Thanksgiving with your family. We hope that you will choose us for your next family gathering and look forward to your return. Jay, Melba, & Family

Owner Supplied Testimonials

" We enjoyed our stay here, The Cabin is cozy, exactly what we were looking for. We even referred to it as our home away from home. The information booklet was very useful, it definitely helped us get around easier. All in all our stay was perfect and we are definitely planning on coming back here again. We will let everyone know about your Cabin! Thanks again, Todd & Judy"
