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!
