This place is an absolute must! We are from Washington and my fiancé and I wanted a weekend away from the city - we couldn't have been more blown away, more impressed, and more excited with this place! From the overly friendly and gracious and knowledgeable owners to their cute Boston Terrier Lola, this remote (yet easily accessible from Washington,... More

The owners make every you feel as if you are at your own mountain get a way, until you walk inside, then you are taken away to the heart of europe. The location is very remote feeling yet close to many great places to visit.

We had the most amazing and relaxing time at Shadow Mountain Escape! Our 4th anniversary was perfect. We stayed in the Dragonfly cabin and it was lovely - super clean, plenty of room and cutely decorated. Shadow Mountain Escape is a treasure and we can’t wait to come back!

The birth of our son was one of the best moments of our lives, yet a few months later, the diapers, midnight feedings, and cranky baby cries where all starting to wear on our nerves. Grandparents arrive, and off we go to the Dragonfly at Shadow Mountain Escapes. The trip was just what the doctor ordered. The property and cabin... More

We stumbled into this gem purely by accident at the last minute, but were so thrilled with everything. They've put a great deal of attention to every detail. I'm very picky about cleanliness and this surpassed my high standards. We were greeted warmly with homemade brownies. We highly recommend staying with these lovely folk.

What a delightful getaway they created! We were so thrilled with every aspect of our stay – we will remember Shadow Mountain Escape fondly for years to come! Everything about the place is above and beyond what we expected. The pictures don't do it justice. The rooms are big and beautiful, and so is the property.

It was a perfect, romantic and natural spot for such wonderful memories for us; we got engaged downstairs in the Ladybug cabin. The cabins are beautifully maintained and Karen and her husband were such gracious hosts - from leaving a welcome basket with some homemade treats to providing s'more supplies for the campfire. I would highly recommend for anyone looking... More

By far best weekend getaway I have ever been. The property was beautifully kept.I loved drinking my coffee in the morning and seeing the deer off our little deck. The owners Karen and Ralph are very friendly and make you feel very welcomed. They gave us a tour of our cabin and showed us a map of the best places... More

This quaint escape was just what we needed. It made for a spectacular backdrop for my birthday and valentine's day weekend. My husband and I were able to truly relax in the peaceful atmosphere of the cozy yet spacious townhouse-like suite we rented. The fireplace added to the experience for sure. Talk about checking out for the weekend...pitch black out... More
