My friends and I booked cabin 3 for the weekend. We had an amazing first night sitting by the fire and enjoying the fresh air. The cabin is wonderful, with lots of nice little touches. They supply pretty much everything you would need for a weekend away just bring towels and maybe a radio (we bought one at the local... More

We rented the whole of Wapiti Woods for two nights for our daughter's weekend wedding in early May 2015. Her fiance and she had stayed there last fall, but none of the rest of us had ever seen the place and all the arrangements were made via e-mail from hundreds (Philly) or thousands (Seattle) of miles away. Steve, the proprietor,... More

First off, I will start by saying this, Steve went above and beyond with our stay (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; mid-ice storm). I called him up at 1800 hours Friday night, asked if he could accommodate myself and significant other. This being way past typical check in, and myself being 2 hours away, I did not expect him to say... More

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
