As we were visiting in August I was worried that the cabin would be too warm but when we arrived there were several fans available and two new portable air conditioners. I didn't end up needing them though, the cabin seemed well insulated.
My favorite part was the balcony. We ate all of our meals on the outside table and migrated out there often to sit in the comfortable chairs.
This place is perfect for two groups visiting as the downstairs has a bedroom, bath, and even a microwave and small refrigerator. I thought of it as the downstairs apartment, my teenager really loved it.
I've booked couple cabins before but by far this cabin's owner, Svetlana, is by far the most warm-hearted person.
Svet responded every inquires within an hour and generously allowed our group to check in earlier than the cabin regulation. and when we checked out, Svet told us that we could check in later than the time posted!
I've had a previous cabin experience where a cabin owner called the cleaners to clean the cabin even before my group checked out.
And the location of this cabin is surrounded by nature and a kind community which make me miss the place already.
We stayed Friday through Sunday and it was great! The place is warm and roomy. The price wasn't bad split between 3 couples. Amenities were ample, the grill worked well, and the fireplace as well. The cabin is a bit old school looking inside, and could use some new updates, but otherwise nothing to complain about. I would certainly stay again. Property manager/owner was helpful and kind as well.
Place was great nice comfy atmosphere. Price was good has everything you need beside cable but overall we loved it. We sure do plan on staying here again in the future everything was simple and easy. Owner contacts you directly to give you info which is great. Stores and restaurants are 5 mins away
Positives: Price was very reasonable (~$1000 for a one week stay; less than 5 minutes from lake or from downtown Crestline; great owners - easy to work with and VERY responsive to questions and/or needs; terrific wood deck (huge); good room layout; terrific wifi reception allowing multiple devices to stream concurrently; plenty of closet space.
Needs improvement: beds and linens need upgrading, storage for food in kitchen is VERY lacking (we had to store food on counter and in boxes), some dishes weren't clean when we arrived and had to be re-washed (new cleaning company needed maybe?); TV's could be upgraded to SMART to allow bluetooth connection with computers.
