Wapiti Woods is a beautiful, well planned out facility. The cabins are clean & equipped with anything you need for a getaway in the woods. You are in the woods, so even though cabins are spotless, "wood creatures" are around, so be prepared to squish the occasional spider. The woodstoves work REALLY well, so easy on stoking them with wood...we... More

We certainly do apologize for that sulpher smell that currently exists in the water. The problem has just recently cropped up and come to light. We are working to rebed the system filters to minimize that smell. The mineral smell you experience is a result of acquiring our water source from the ground via a well. This area has been... More

We stayed at cabin # 6. Cabin #1 is the furthest away from the parking lot. The cabin was very clean and I (and my crew) am very picky. This was NOT a dirty old cabin. This is a nice, new cabin with a lot of detail put into the design. They have a lot of extra's that can be... More

Thank you for your comments about our guest cabins at Wapiti Woods. Keeping all vehicles off of the cabin grounds and away from the cabins has been a big plus for the overall ambiance of the cabins and improves the overall safety on the grounds. We agree that it is a bit different from other cabin type accommodations but it... More

Summary: The design and location of the grounds is nearly perfect for people looking to get away to nature for a few days. Steve does an outstanding job of providing all the information his guests will need to plan their visit on his web site. However, there were several details that we believe could have been done better, especially for... More

My husband and I have been coming here since 2012. This year marks our 3rd trip. I can't say enough about Wapiti Woods. It's become our yearly get away. Wapiti Steve has become a household name.

I was looking for a cabin for some friends to get together for my boyfriend's birthday. I wasn't looking for something this nice, but the fact that they had family cabins that slept 6 (plus a full sized futon in the living room that could sleep an extra person), and that it was fully stocked sold me. I felt the... More

Thank you for the very nice review and comments. The only problems you noted were some issues accessing the Wi-Fi and lack of local cell phone service. The original cabin grounds (Cabins #1-6) are WiFi serviced with a set of three expanders placed through the grounds. That system has been a little problematic, at times, but it does have a... More

Just wanted to give a great big Thanks for a fantastic weekend June 6-8th at your Cabins. What a great place to “run away” to.

Thank you for your favorable review. We do note in our “Cabin Stock List and Guest To-Bring List,” found on our website at www.wapitiwoods.com, that camp slippers or shoes are recommended. We know that an aggregate stone finish might be harder on some of our guest’s bare feet, but wanted a flooring surface that would stand up to, and make... More

Thank you for the positive review and comments. We wonder if we need to more prominently note the nonexistent cell phone service, cable / dish TV access and inability to drive onto the cabin grounds on the Wapiti Woods website (these items have been noted on our website since we opened in 2003). We do believe that the lack of... More

Wapiti Woods added four new guest cabins in 2013/2014 that included three new 2 person Romantic Cabins and a new 6 person handicap accessible Family Cabin.
