This cozy cabin provides a perfect getaway and is a gem in all seasons, especially during the fall colors or a blowing winter storm. Timber frame cabin built on a hilltop, on 20 acres of old growth maples. Walls of glass, a screened in porch and a wrap around deck bring the outdoors inside. The ridge top location has spectacular views through the trees - with lake views after the leaves drop. The property also boasts a fantastic wood fired cedar sauna - perfect for rejuvenating.
“We got to hike Kudance River (highly recommend) and Devil's Kettle. The welcome booklet was EXTREMELY HELPFUL, as we did not have GPS signal and drove around with the booklet everyday for reference! Everything was easy to use and clean. We only made the crazy drive up the last hill once to empty the car.... every time after that we parked down at Tom Lake Rd. It is not very car friendly and it had rained overnight, but the walk up is beautiful. We used one can of bug/tick spray and did not get a single woodtick. We spent time at the cabin reading all the books we found, and playing chess. Used the Sauna once, and it was so nice! Had a campfire the same night and boy did those mosquitoes disappear! Got a lot of use out of the screened in porch, and the outhouse is very close to the cabin. Overall the experience was fantastic, just what we needed and we would stay again!!”

“Joy and Andrew were amazing hosts! They were extremely nice and responsive to the questions we had as we got closer to our trip and checked in on us throughout our stay. The house itself is BEAUTIFUL, I wish I could live there forever! It was so great to find a house that my family of 20 people could stay in comfortably - and they are even finishing up more rooms! This may sound silly, but it was very nice for all of us to be able to eat together at one large table. It was super helpful that they have a high chair so we didn't have to bring one, a pack n' play so we could pack one less, and we even did a couple of puzzles they had. The hot tub was SO relaxing it made me want to buy one! The upper-level porch was perfect for relaxing with kiddos without worrying about them getting to the river since there are no stairs down to the yard. The house is so well furnished, comfy chairs, couches and rocking chairs in all the right places! The only thing that could have improved our stay was darker curtains in the bedrooms - the time of year the sun is up "late" for trying to put down little kids, there are indeed shades but it was still very bright (although this is a personal preference, we may be odd wanting complete darkness!). It was so nice to have such a private area as well, no neighbors next door at all. We made so many wonderful memories here! I'm sure I'm missing something, but overall we LOVED our stay! We would definitely stay here again, on the drive home our toddler asked if we could go back! :) ”

“Zach and Betsy’s space is charming and unique. Such a cozy spot for an overnight trip to the cities, and the on-street parking and check-in process were easy and well described. The space has more unique touches than we were able to take advantage of...just wishing our trip was longer! Beds were comfortable, so spacious, and the porch was perfect for a summer evening. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a cozy and serene spot in the cities! 😊”
