We stayed at this cabin with a group of friends and it was AWESOME! The house is beautiful and spacious with original, hand made tiling - wow! The upstairs is handicap accessible which it is difficult to find places where my friend in a wheel chair can go.

There are three master style bedrooms with their own bathrooms. One upstairs has a giant Jacuzzi tub. There's a dorm room that would be perfect if you had a bunch of kids and there's a room with a pool table and giant TV.

There's also a room that has two queen beds that can be taken out so that you could hold a workshop in that room. The owners are clearly computer nerds because the whole house is intelligently wired for computer/Internet. I want to come back and do a workshop with a group up there.

The kitchen is everything you'd expect and the kitchen table holds the whole group. Everything is kept up and clean.

I like that it's up in the pines and so quiet. There are hiking trails all over and...
