Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a great time with my family while at Fern Mountain. The house is great, more than we could imagine.

We do have a request... While we were there we all had a great night sleep on the king beds and the bunk beds and we were wanting to know what style and brand these are because they were so comfortable. This would help a great deal as both my wife and I woke up with no pain (getting older). I e-mailed Rustic Furniture but they don't sell mattress's. I forgot to look while I was there. If you have that information could you please let me know.

Again thank you for a great setting and place to share with my family.

Incredible amenities and location!

  • 5 of 5

Let's get the most important thing out of the way first -- the wifi is great. ;)

Okay, moving on! Every bed is comfortable. Every room is well insulated and warm. We roomed 12 guests and everyone had their privacy and comfort assured.

The kitchen is large and fairly well equipped. Three refrigerators! Two ovens! We had no problem preparing giant meals for 12 people during our stay.

Bill was very responsive to our questions. He made sure the driveway was plowed so we could get out in the middle of our stay.

We had an amazing time with nothing to worry about! Would gladly stay again.

Outstanding !!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 13 people fit extremely well. The open floor plan between the second and third floor allowed better opportunity for interaction. The house is very clean, laid out very well, and the kitchen with two stoves and equivalent two refrigerators made cooking and food preparation very easy . Property owners were easily accessible and very accommodating . We will definitely consider staying in this home again for our next gathering .

Marvelous Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of ten people. There was ample room for everyone. Steve was very accommodating. The cabin was beautiful and very peaceful. It was clean and organized. Everyone really enjoyed their stay.

Amazing Space

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a WOW, the pictures are true in every way! The open floor plan gave a definite spacious feeling and no one ever felt left out. One of my favorite features were the two under the counter refrigerators , what a blessing! Perfect for snacks and beverages, leaving he full size fridge for everything else.

The back deck is huge with two tables and plenty of chairs. The huge grill accommodated twelve large Rib Eye Steaks, and there was room for more, much larger than ours.

We hit some rainy weather during our stay, so movies on the projection screen filled some time. On the clear evenings we made good use of the fire pit .

Mr, Steele was very accommodating to our needs. very easy to work with and I hope he felt the same way about us.

The only real downside is that any open floor plan makes it difficult for the A/C to be even, maybe a fan would hAve helped the loft area a bit.

One other heads up...the fifth bedroom is actually another level to the loft, so don't plan on the Grandparents for that space .

My recommendation is to make your plans ASAP, and don't forget your towels.

Thanks to Pappy's Cabin we had a wonderful family reunion.
