Perfect place for Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Location is easy to get to. Real close to everything in town. 15 min from Winter Wonderland. We rented an igloo for the day.

Ski Apache is just 40 min away due to the slow posted speeds.

Loved having morning visits from the deer. 1st day only 2. I think they went and told friends, day 2 , 6 deer were outside. Quiet and peaceful. We will make this our vacation stay when we come back. Thank you.

Owner's Response: We are always happy to have returning guests. Shows we are doing something right! We had pretty good rains this summer so the river should be up for a while. Hope the winter has a lot of snow, both here and up on the mountain. Will be looking forward to seeing you next year!

The home was conveniently located to town but had all the seclusion we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

Stepping out to the back deck sold the entire experience. The tranquilizing sound of the river, breeze blowing through the trees and the fragrance of the mountain outdoors says it all. We had bird varieties too numerous to count. A doe came by the first evening and was a regular guest. She brought her fawns and could not get enough of them. We had all our meals at home and everything we needed was provided for cooking and cleanup. We loved every minute.

Owner's Response: You have perfectly summed up why we think our cabin is so wonderful. I'm sure the deer enjoyed visiting you also. They will be hoping you return. As will we!
