Bring some steaks and enjoy cookouts on the grill followed by an evening around the fire pit with firewood supplied. Inside, there’s a kitchenette with a coffee maker as well as a living room with a smart TV. Wi-Fi is available for each guest.  You’ll have an outdoor patio for relaxing, and a gas fireplace to cozy up to with a glass of champagne on the couch. While that makes it romantic enough on its own, the jacuzzi in the cabin takes it up a notch. Best of all, they offer 12 cabins with different sleeping arrangements to suit all traveler’s needs! One of them even being dog-friendly!

Now that you’re all checked into your cabin, make the most of it!

The owners Sherry and George will exceed your expectations with their personal special touches. Upon request, they will provide a bottle of champagne on ice, build and light a fire and provide a picnic basket full of smore making goodies.

Thousands of families, groups and couples have stayed here over the years with nothing but positive things to boast about. Leaving relaxed and recharged!

A community house is centrally located between the cabins next to the firepit that is available for parties, reunions, or to simply hang out and play some cards with your group.
