“Wonderfully unique cabin in beautiful surroundings.”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our family stayed in The General's Cabin for three relaxing nights. The cabin is wonderfully unique; being that it was built by hand by General Little. There is a full well stocked kitchen that lets in plenty of light due to a wall of windows. Every evening we sat by the fire in the sitting area and then later we moved to another sitting area to watch a movie on the DVD player. The two bedrooms each have their own bathroom and the linens and towels are a nice quality. The mattresses are very comfortable as well. We grilled out each day, attempted to fish in the pond (the weather didn't cooperate because of all the recent rain), and we hiked on a well marked trail. The owners, Joy and Michael, were friendly and helpful and called to check on us our first night. They even responded to our text when we had a question. We thoroughly enjoyed this treasure of a cabin and look forward to our next visit!

“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We just returned from our stay at the General's Cabin and were so pleased with everything. The location was idyllic and the cabin was well-appointed and spotless. We loved hiking with our dogs and then coming back and relaxing by the fireplace. It was the perfect way to end a busy year and celebrate a new one. We would love to visit again in the summer and can only imagine how beautiful it will be in the fall. Can't wait to go back.

“Beyond my expectations!”
Reviewed December 4, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I can't say enough about my stay at the Generals Cabin. It is such a serene and beautiful place....both inside and out! The cabin is so cozy and comfortable. Very clean and well maintained. The best sleep I've had in a long time! The walk down to the pond and sitting on the dock was just beautiful.
Thank you Joy (owner) for a wonderful stay. I look forward to staying again in the future!

“Great Retreat!”
Reviewed December 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We experienced the Cabin on our very first couples get a way. The cabin is gorgeous, comfortable and quirky. Everything we needed for a four night stay was included, the owners go above and beyond supply the cabin. The trails around the cabin allowed for a nice stroll to walk off dinner and the fishing hole was a nice addition as well. We felt very secure up in the hills, out of sight of the road, behind a long, gated lane.
I am glad we did not take a third couple- I would not recommend the loft to sleep in...and be aware that due to the "open" concept, there is no privacy. All in all, we would be happy to return.

“WE LOVE THIS PLACE AND DO KEEP RETURNING!!!”
Reviewed October 20, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I can still remember when I came across the General's Cabin on a web search. I was looking for something in the woods but that was also pet friendly. It looked wonderful ...sounded wonderful and was not far from home. We loved it...we have been 3 or 4 times now. We go in the spring and in the fall. Our dogs love it...they don't want to get back in the car to come home. Everything about the General's Cabin is clever and fanciful. From the random placed windows (which we love) to the massive stone fireplace. Everything that you need is there....great book selections...no TV yea!! The kitchen is nicely furnished with cooking essentials...washer/dryer...great beds...showers..we cook...eat....read...eat...play cards.....eat.....hike....eat.....nap...nap...nap...fish.....I even caught one/two.....could have been the same fish.....watched the meteor showers....We've got to stop telling people about it because it won't be available when we want to go!!

“The most enchanting, homey and relaxing place to stay during our wedding!”
Reviewed October 20, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The history alone makes this cabin the most interesting and charming place to stay. The Masseys share a beautiful story that you can read during the visit. The property is absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed fishing and hiking, even seeing deer. The bed was very comfortable and the fireplace warmed us on the cool evenings after cooking dinner in the huge well stocked kitchen. We can't wait to plan another trip to the General's Cabin and I have already told all my friends about it...
