Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The cabin is a wonderful place for a family retreat or couples getaway! It is conveniently located 3 minutes from a four lane highway and is less than 15 minutes south of a town that has a population of around 5,000 and 20-30 minutes north of a larger college town of approximately 35,000. The Cabin is nestled by a shallow creek and faces 25 wooded acres that are ideal for hiking and enjoying nature.

The space
The original cabin was a two room structure made from hand sawed logs approximately 100 years ago. It was remodeled completely in 2011. At that time the roof was raised-
adding a loft room and a half bath/laundry room.
On the lower level, a full bathroom was also added. The entire downstairs consists of a modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, and a table that accommodates 6 comfortably. The den has a sofa bed and a flat screen television. There is also a full bathroom with a walk-in shower located downstairs.
Upstairs, in the loft, there are two queen beds and two twin beds, a flat screen television, and a half bath with a washer and a dryer. The loft is very roomy and comfortable, but the ceiling is lower than normal height near the exterior walls and at the bathroom entrance.
There are two porches- one has two rocking chairs and a small table and four chairs- perfect for eating outside and drinking coffee while enjoying the sounds of nature and the creek. The other smaller porch has two benches and also has a creek view.
