Relaxing get away
Excellent get away, very relaxing atmosphere with running stream right by the cabin. Very clean and the hosts were very helpful and friendly. The gravel road to it is a bit rough but if you go slowly not to bad, and the cabin is well worth the drive. We enjoyed our time there very much.

This place is a little gem tucked away in the woods. Come here for a warm welcome and a very comfortable little cabin, surrounded by complete peace and quiet. Alice provided great local recommendations including the Cherohala Skyway which was fantastic.

Perfect spot for a cozy cabin experience if willing to plan a bit for food and driving adventures. But host is most helpful giving necessary information ahead of time, and random kitchen amenities are a huge plus. Gorgeous atmosphere and details add the personal touch not encountered often.

It's a bit of a drive on a one lane gravel drive but you are rewarded by a unique and comfortable cabin overlooking a pristine mountain stream. Our hosts were friendly and attentive while allowing us our privacy. Convenient to Joyce Kilmer Forest and the Cherohala Skyway.

We loved staying there. We were on a 6 day trip and this was our favorite place we stayed. Very clean, so peaceful, and the hostess was very sweet and was very helpful. My husband and I would defiantly stay there again if we are in the area.
