Kristi G.

Skiing and Relaxing

We hit the slopes and trails and came back to the charming cabin for games and relaxation. Water views were amazing. Accommodations were fantastic for our family of five. John was very responsive and helpful. Clean and well stocked.

Thanksgiving Retreat!

We had a great time at the cabin, enjoying the cold at the firepit and at the fireplace. The cabin is very cozy and spacious. We were 5 plus our dog. John communicated with us promptly at all times. Would definetly recommend!
