Beautiful, secluded location for a family or friends getaway. New, clean and nicely appointed. Plenty of space for parents and kids. If in the summer, about 15 minutes to the closest boat dock for renting a pontoon or launching your own at Lake Fontana. An easy place to relax and lose track of time in just a few days...

This place is stunning! I came to the area to go whitewater rafting and explore the area but the cabin was so nice we didn't even want to leave. The place basically had everything that was needed. There is a grocery store about 20 minutes away too so it is a great location. I absolutely loved the place! Thank you for my stay, everything was great.

We are a group of best friends meeting each other from different locations after a span of two years. We had fun in the mountains. We really enjoyed the splendid stay and had a great time rafting, tubing at Deep Creek and water falls at Indian Creek, and loved all of the pictures that we were able to take.

Priceless memories with my 3 best friends. This place and vacation were priceless. We needed a place to get away from the screens on our phones, tablets and computers as well as the sights and sounds of the real world. Mission Accomplished. I have never been more relaxed. This was our first cabin trip but not our last!!

We are up from Miami Fl. It was our first time to experience the snow and we had a great time, beautiful cabin and every detail is just great. this cabin was a great cabin to come to for this trip. We stayed in most of the time but after breakfast we would go for a hike and at night relaxed in the hot tub or sauna. Best vacation every.

We stayed here for Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends and had an amazing time. The cabin is secluded and quiet, family/child friendly, modern and updated (while still being rustic), and had many great amenities. We stayed up way too late each night to play darts, pinball, and soak in the hot tub. We would all highly recommend this cabin for your getaway or family vacation!

We absolutely loved our stay at this cabin. The cabin is up-to-date while still giving off the log cabin feel. We planned on hiking and rafting most of the weekend but found ourselves coming back to the cabin by 3pm everyday so we could sit by the fire pit, hang in the hot tub, play darts, or just enjoy the beautiful scenery around the cabin. If you're looking for things to do, there were plenty of hiking trails and rafting trips nearby. My friends and I are already trying to find another weekend we can come back!
