staying in Ivan's cabin was unforgettable. like another reviewer mentioned, the photos do absolutely no justice. everything that is mentioned (including the canoe and firepit) are available and not fabricated whatsoever- the full kitchen, the communal dining table, the sound system, beautiful bathrooms, nearby farms- you name it. there was literally nothing else we could have needed that was not provided.
we took the canoe out onto the lake several times, which was a dream in itself. the cabin is on private property which offers a sense of escape, but there are a few other houses (with friendly neighbors that I spotted on morning walks) on the property to avoid feeling complete isolation.
Ivan checked in with us several times throughout our stay to make sure everything was okay. I was in disbelief of the views of the lake, and both the house and backyard are very spacious- an ideal place to spend a week with friends/family. but its also perfect for staying just a few nights like we did. i could go on and on..
do yourself a favor and rent this cabin.
We had a great experience at Ivan's cabin. This was likely the only time where the public photos of the cabin online, did not do the real thing justice. Ivan did a remarkable job decorating the cabin and property. Its a beautiful spot and I'm eager to return in the summer again.
It was easy to schedule arrival and departure, we were not left in the dark at all. Luckily we did not need any last minute items or help, but Ivan was on call if we did. Overal we had a fun time and I would recommend this cabin for a casual weekend getaway.
John's cabin is clean, well-stocked (towels, linens, pillows), and decorated/furnished with neat design pieces (which can be fragile -- careful!). The private (artificial?) pond is pleasant. There's a fire pit on the property, boats for paddling on the pond, and a nice porch for sitting. The surrounding farmland and woods offer plenty of routes for runners. John is an accommodating, detail-oriented host (maybe some will find him a bit fussy, but just make sure to read the "house rules" carefully!). Cell-phone reception at the cabin is very patchy -- don't count on it. The one negative detail, in our particular case, was that John had left us the wrong key (or a broken key), so we had to "break in" through a window and couldn't all leave the cabin at once during our stay. Presumably that won't happen again, though -- and John was relatively gracious in allowing us to get into his place by unorthodox means...
Ivan's cabin provided a much needed city escape for me and my friends. The views are beautiful and we sat out by the fire for a solid four hours on saturday night.
Heads up, there is no internet (as it should be in the woods) and reception is questionable, so don't plan to do any work!
My friends and I had a great time at John’s house. It’s a really cute spot and the lake in front of the house was amazing. The house is really cozy. There is a two-person hammock in front of the house where you can lay and look into the colorful treetops, my tip for the fall. There are two really cute rooms and one room with two bunk beds. For us that was perfect but for couples this might be something to think off. The only minus is that I had to pay more that it originally said on the airbnb page. But overall I would go there again in a heartbeat.
Its a beautiful, peaceful cabin. Amazing views of the lake and mountains. And booking process went smoothly. Ivan was great to work with - very communicative. Thanks for a great stay!
