It has everything a family could want or ask for! The grandkids asks all throughout the year ... "Do we get to go to that cabin again?" This place will be a family tradition for years to come.

Well stocked kitchen, clean and well kept, activities for all ages, and awesome owners to work with. Highlights include that incredible zip line and beautiful fishing pond and great swing set and slide and fun trampoline and perfect setting for a fire and ... ok ...ok ... it is All a Highlight!!!

The property was beautiful! We were very impressed with everything that was offered to do on site!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and we had plenty of space for everyone! We enjoyed all of the activities that were there. The zipline was a big hit with everyone!

The only thing that could have made it better was if cable tv was offered, and maybe a large table to eat outside on the beautiful deck! We had a wonderful time and we will be back for sure!

The perfect getaway for Soda Springs and Lava hot springs!

Better than expected, really.

  • 5 of 5

I had the task of planning my families reunion for 2017, and with only half coming, I needed a smaller place, but still one that enjoyable and affordable. How I found this Cabin, I am not certain, but I am so glad I did. It was the right size, we had my 67 year old mom, one couple with 2 adult daughters, and another with 6 kids ages 18 to 6, and my family with two boys, 8 and 6. There were enough beds for everyone to be comfortable, and to have their own space. It has plenty of bedding and pillows. The great room was the right size for the whole family whether we were eating, playing games, or just visiting.

We had nice weather, so we were able to fish, use the fire pit and zip line.

The fishing became family activity, I think most who wanted to catch a fish, did.

The zip line was a long one, those who had the nerve to attempt it, really enjoyed it, we actually spent the better part of one day using it.

We even used the gas grill, it was easy to use, and had plenty of gas.

Having a bathroom on every level was convenient.

I knew nothing about Soda Springs, but had a good time watching the geyser, finding the soda spring and tasting it, it was a unique experience. The town is full of nice people, polite and friendly. The drive to Lava Hot Springs was a beautiful one, so the distance wasn't even noticed. We even went to the Hot Pools at night, it was fun, worth the extra trip with out the kiddos.

The rest of the family that skipped this year, wished they had joined us, after seeing the photos and hearing about our stay.

I will tell you a few things I wish I knew before hand; you can take food into the water park in Lava, so you can save money and pack a lunch, pack beach towels, chairs, and something for shade.

The Chuck Wagon restaurant had hand cut fries, but the wait for lunch was a long one, but the food was good.

The cabin has plenty of towels and wash clothes, but bring any soap and shampoo you need.

We also had to pick up extra garbage bags, as mentioned in another review, the garbage can was a bit tricky, garbage day for us was Tuesday.

There was one fridge, we all take turns making meals, so finding ways to keep food cool thru the stay was a creative process. We made it work.

It has plenty of kitchen tools and pans.

It's three levels, lots of stairs. You can hear lots noise through out the cabin, but it isn't too bad, it is a cabin after all.

Would recommend it as a great place, the owners were easy to work with.
