There is no picture or review that will EVER touch the magic of this place! It is quiet, remote, romantic and perfect. Perfect for weekends away with your spouse, perfect for a glamping (that's glamor camping) trip with the family, perfect for getting away for some alone time! Although this place has all the modern conveniences, like electricity and running water, my husband and I LOVE to bring candles and create a romantic/rustic atmosphere... ;) I recommend this beautiful cabin to EVERYONE...

If you are looking for a rustic private retreat from city life then you've found what you're looking for. Precious Forest is a wonderful site to have a wedding. It's a long road up the mountain but worth the drive. This is where beauty and adventure meet to create the space for your guests to gather. If you enjoy camping, cabins, cozy wood burning stoves, kind and attentive pets and an escape from city madness, then this is the place for you! My wife and I had a wonderful wedding and vacation in Precious Forest. The cabin is romantic and cozy, the grounds spacious and exactly what we were looking for. We were even able to have my rock band play outside at our reception. Really fun! Ken and Katie are hard working, kind and gracious hosts who made my wife and I and our newly combined families feel very comfortable and welcome. They also provided our catering with an amazing feast which was enjoyed by all. We really appreciate the time we spent there and have many fond memories we will cherish for a lifetime.

My partner and I just returned from a wonderful weekend stay in the cabin and it was superb! It was great to disconnect for an entire weekend while enjoying a nice cozy fire. Absolutely amazing.
Just got back from my stay at Ken's cabin and had an unforgettable experience living off the grid. Ken was very friendly and accommodating. The cabin experience was very rustic. I especially enjoyed the old stove and gas burning fireplace. Definitely different than my life in the city. There is no electricity and lights are run in the evening by a generator. Driving up the mountain in the snow was also an experience. It was the fresh air, beautiful view, city escape I was looking for, just know what you're getting into. I loved every minute of it. Thank you Ken!
Just perfect. Spent 3 nights here over new year with good friends, and it was stunning. Lit a campfire under the stars, made amazing food in the smoker and on the old stove. We were perfectly comfortable, the gas fire and good insulation kept the cabin nice and toasty warm. Hung out with the adorable dog Dip. Had electricity (including internet) from the generator any time we needed it, but most of the time we were happy to just switch off and disconnect. Amazing sunsets and stunning views made it easy to just sit up on the deck for hours and soak it all in.
Ken is an amazing host - checking in every now and again to make sure we had absolutely everything we needed, but otherwise just leaving us to enjoy the tranquility of the property.
We'll be back for sure.
Ken is a great host: friendly, responsive and flexible. He made us feel very welcome. He's building a bit of a glamping empire with tent cabins and cabins spread across the area. The chalet in the middle of this provides high-end glamping with a wood stove, nice beds, a jacuzzi bathtub and electricity at night. You cannot see it in the pictures but this place has amazing views of the lake. It's a great place to get away from busy city life.
Stayed here with 7 buddies--four in the main house, two in the cool yurt thing, and one in the tiny A-frame structure. Definitely worth the small price! Ken was nice enough to throw in the yurt and the A-frame at no charge--no one was renting them at the time we were there. The main house has a really good feel to it, even though it's newly built (by Ken and his dad!). Best part was probably the dog, which comes with the property and is the kindest dog ever. The jacuzzi (!) upstairs was nice to soak in, but the jets didn't work at the time: this is essentially meaningless but it sticks out as the only flaw in an otherwise fantastic stay. Clear Lake itself is a little trashy but has some charm--diners, the local radio station, and the natural bounty. Best to stay here if you're planning on staying at the property most of the time--the drive up/down the hill is REALLY long and steep, and you'd get tired of doing it more than a few times.
Precious forest is a truly magic place! I had a great 30 birthday and Ken was a fantastic host!
This place is great. Great combination of cleanliness and ruggedness. The stove is worth the trip, alone. House keeps heat well and it the outdoor shower is great in the morning to wake up with.
Ken was an excellent host and maintained great communication. The chalet is even better than it looks online! It's clean, cozy and very romantic. The kitchen has all the tools and utensils you might need and the old iron, wood/propane stove is very fun to cook on. Overall, the experience exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to go back.
Beautiful cabin in a beautiful setting, and Ken was helpful and friendly. Can't say enough good things about our experience!
A wonderful retreat with amazing views and a comfy bed - what more do you need?
