Reviewed July 23, 2012

I've been in this beautiful place twice already with my husband and sons. We all love it and want to come back and bring some friends. Not only the place is beautiful but Chris, Karen, Sophie and Megan are very very special people. Beautiful family. My kids love to play with Sophie, and we all enjoy talking and having some relax time with them too. They make you feel at home. The cabins are super neat, clean and comfy. The river is the best, delicious and fun. We did go tubing and had a great time. The bonfire at night with the marshmallow is so relaxing. The sky and the fireflies make the night spark. The smell of the nature, unbelievable. The surroundings are beautiful too, but I have to say that I can spend days in their property doing just nothing, enjoying the nature and having fun. We strongly recommend this place. We just love it :)

What a wonderful place to get away. The cabins are tucked away in a forest opening alongside a beautiful river, and are surrounded by flower gardens and ponds. Very picturesque. The hosts, Chris and Karen, couldn't be any nicer or more accommodating. The cabins are very clean, and the grounds are immaculately kept. Taberg is a quick drive for hiking in the Adirondacks, but there's really no need to leave this place. Playing in Fish Creek, badminton, grilling, visiting with other guests, nighttime campfires, firefly display, and reading a good book in the hammock kept us busy our whole stay. We loved Wellnesste and will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed at the Adirondack cabin...spacious and all the amenities.

Thank you for listing all the great things that we have to offer here at Wellnesste! All of the ice and the snow has melted which has cause the river to rise, widen out and it's moving quite quickly as we speak!

Let us know if you are able to visit us in 2014!

Can't say enough about this place and about the host, Cris and Karen. Such a relaxing and wonderful place. The cabin was neat and comfortable. My wife and I truly enjoyed our stay and hope to come back with our entire family. Highly recommend this place if you are looking to get away, relax and enjoy nature.

Glad to hear that serenity, among est many other things, was found. Let us know if we can accommodate you in the future! Spring is such a beautiful time of year here. Fish Creek is wide and roaring as we speak. All the ice from the north is melting and floating down stream. It's a site to see.

Let us know if we can accommodate you in 2014!

Wellnesste is so relaxing and in such a beautiful hidden peaceful spot! The owners Karen and Christophe are very friendly and welcoming. Everything is so nice, clean and just wonderful! The adirondack cabin is very comfortable and spacious, tons of books, games and movies! The chairs overlooking the creek provides such a peaceful spot to relax and listen to the water! Just beautiful there!

My wife and I spent 2 nites in Leopolds cabin. It was very neat and clean and had everything we needed. Down by the river was great - at nite with the fireflys and in the AM watching the sunrise, drinking our coffee. Chris was a great host. We missed a bonfire so didn't get to make s'mores - next time! It was a very beautiful and relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Leopolds cabin was convenient, Thoreaus cabin has a fireplace.

Thanks for your kind review. We'd love to have you back to take you up on the bonfire. You should properly enjoy smore's in front of a fire.

Thanks again for taking the time to write a review and hopefully we can see you in 2014!

Such a beautiful place to escape from the day to day madness. The cabin was clean and cozy. The grounds were well kept and the owners were so accomodating, laid back and friendly. Our dog absolutely loves the huge plot of land and swimming in the river. Great that they have a real bathroom with running water, a toilet and a shower, off of their main house. it felt more like a vacation than camping!

The owner of these secluded cabins couldn't have been nicer and more hospitable. Leapolds cabin was very clean and very comfortable. Campfire by the river at night, swimming in the water hole and the rapids during the day. There are plenty of day trips to take. The use of the grill and river shoes was awesome and very helpfull and the bathroom facilities was a full clean bathroom attached to the owners home. The cabin is located right next to the owners home which normally would have bothered my wife and I but considering how genuinely nice the owner was, we didn't mind being right next to the main house.

Thanks for the kind response. Thanks also for pointing out that the bathroom for Leopold's and Thoreaus' Cabin is indeed attached to another building but very close to our cabins. We want our guests to be fully aware of what we do and don't have to offer.

Hopefully we can accommodate you in 2014.
