Cozy forest cabin w all imaginable amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 4-day stay in the lush, cozy, secluded cabin tucked in the beautiful woods. Loved being at the end of the road with busy birds as our closest, most active neighbors. Two kids age 3 and 6 were in heaven - fab hammock, great toys and the creek perf for rock throwing. We loved the comfy beds, personal vibe and well-equipped kitchen. There is a nice homey feel and we felt very welcomed. Thanks!

Weekend get away...

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the perfect place to unwind and disconnect, we and our friends loved it! So did our pup, Stella. Everything you need is here at the cabin, just bring food and beverages. We really enjoyed the fire pit too. We will be booking another future stay when we attend our next Oakridge event. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I needed a relaxing get away. What a pleasant surprise Davis Creek Cabin was. The owner Genny went above and beyond expectation to make us welcome and comfortable. We loved it and will go back. The cabin was very clean and everything we needed was provided at the cabin including cut firewood and starter wood.

Charming, Well-Appointed Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is lovely, and the owner has added every small touch to ensure you have a great experience. We loved it! Although our April spring hiking trip wound up as a cold, somewhat snowy, weekend, we enjoyed visiting local breweries and then settling in by the cabin's fireplace. I can only imagine this place truly shines when it is nice enough to enjoy the porch and fire pit.

Comfy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a very homey comfortable cabin. Though it rained the whole time we were there and our plans for skiing had to be abandoned we all enjoyed being together in this cabin in the foothills. It is welcoming to all ages and our 7 year old granddaughter wanted to "just go back to the cabin" every time we ventured out.
