The perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

If you have a group and need a large cabin this is your place! We had 8 adults and 8 kids and had more room than we needed. We still had several beds that we didn’t use. I can’t say enough good things you just have to see for yourself! Martin was available for the few questions that we had. Love love love this place!

Amazing home beautiful property clean. Reasonably priced. Definitely will be goin back.

  • 5 of 5

This house has plenty of room hiking right out your back door. Incredible living room with amazing view. Did little yoga by the fireplace as we gazed into the eagle preserve. I love to cook and the kitchen is a dream. This house is a must. Owner is helpful and easy to contact with any questions. Highly recommend this place.

Incredible retreat in a great place.

  • 5 of 5

What is there to say but incredible. Used the home for a company retreat and was incredibly impressed from the moment I received the welcome email. The instructions of the household were so organized I could not have asked for anything more. Was even able to do an early check in.

But the most impressive part was the home itself. Amazing! Just Amazing! The home is well maintained with so many amenities. Very easy to navigate even though its so big. We comfortably slept 13 people no problem.

The entire company was so impressed by the place.

Beautiful mountain retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Really great experience staying here. The owner was very responsive to addressing a couple of issues and walked us through fixing them. We were 5 adults and 7 kids (5 families in all) and our group never felt overcrowded in this spacious house. Highly recommended!

An incredible cabin at a reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we checked in, it was apparent to my entire group that this was going to be a spectacular weekend. Martin the owner was easy to get a hold of and extremely helpful when we had a question or needed something. Everything was in good shape and working perfectly, it housed 12 guys with no space issues. We hiked in the back yard, used the bikes to explore the city, and enjoyed everything this cabin had to offer. Would recommend this cabin to anyone and will be coming back in the winter for round 2!
