“Needs just a little attention”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

My husband and I stayed a week here in this very secluded cabin on the Smith River. It is great place for privacy. The A frame cabin cute and nicely furnished with comfortable queen bed in the loft.There are padded benches and extra pads to sleep extra guests down stairs so it would be good for a family with kids, You are off the grid on a small generator so don't expect modern electrical appliances. No phone. no internet, no TV, no toaster, no electric coffee pot. Also there is almost no water pressure in the loft upstairs bath so it is pretty much unusable. The spiral stairs to the loft is very difficult with no rails so getting luggage up is tough. The cabin is a very long way from town so when you leave plan on stay out until you are sure you do not need anything. The cabin was hot and stuffy on warm days since there is not way to get cross ventilations since the sliding doors have no screens and are bolted shut. The bathtub/shower could use a good cleaning since is has very moldy caulking. The Smith river is beautiful clear and the swimming hole looks lovely. Everyday you will be visited by the Golden Bella who wants you to throw her ball. Not for those who need luxury and modern communications.

This is a very secluded cabin, literally just a stones throw away from the Smith River. The water is as crystal clear and refreshing as any i've experienced, and there are big rocks to jump off of. We arrived when the weather was in the triple digits and it was hard to get us out of the cool water. The hosts live just a few hundred feet from this cabin and are as friendly and accommodating as can be. This place is also a popular fishing destination. A few warnings: Electricity is provided by a small generator, so there is no AC, microwave, coffeemaker or any big power drawing appliances. Also the circular staircase has no railing, so be careful!. Don't get discouraged though, because apart from that the place is very clean and updated. There is a large deck, a BBQ, a fire pit, and the kitchen and bathrooms are as nice as can be. Also Bella the dog is always be willing to play fetch. We will certainly return!

  • Liked — River access and seclusion
  • Disliked — Joe and Tyler were not there!
