"I can not express that the pictures do not do this place justice. Yes, the property "looks like" the pictures. However, once you get there you get this wonderful magical sheen that comes over you and everything is that much more awesome. Getting to speak and meet the owners, walk the property with them, see the love, care, and commitment they put into the property and cabin is amazing! When Mike and Laura left us after the first 45 minutes of talking and touring we realized the gift we were afforded to be able to share in their paradise!
We saw deer, rabbits, hummingbirds! The attention to detail I can not say enough about. We wanted for nothing! Everything had a place, nothing was not thought of, it was amazing!
One note for those who run hot: The cabin has a window shaker, in the hot summer months the cabin really can not get cooler than 76ish which for most is great. They do offer a fan but the bathroom and side bonus room are not vented. Easy solution bring an additional fan and you can really make the place comfortable. If you have to have it super cool I suggest not booking in the hottest months but then you sacrifice how amazing the springs are during those months.
Aside from that this cabin is truly a Gem and I would suggest it to any nature buff as we rode our bikes, tubed, sat by the river, had a fire and even practiced our short Disc golf shots in the yard. We will SO be back! Thank you Mike and Laura for sharing your slice of heaven. "
