2/5 Poor

Not very clean.. fridge, bathroom, and coffee maker were noticeably dirty. We were not informed there was people parking on the lawn nearby for the trail before we stayed. Very convenient for hiking as a heavily trafficked trail was nearby. No service for miles where we were at.. and not the best WiFi either. Closest grocery store is an hour away so stock up before getting there. Recommend the Blue Quartz winery about 20-25 minutes away

Looking forward to our next visit!
This was our 2nd visit to the property and we LOVE it!. It is beautiful there in the foothills of the mountains. We enjoyed a simple lunch at the Syria General Store and drove around taking in all the scenery for hours. It is one of our most favorite places to visit. There are ample things to do in addition to hiking White Oak Canyon to the upper and lower water falls. You can not beat the peace, quiet and tranquility here. The cottage is perfect for our needs and we look forward to our next visit!

4/5 Good

Great if you are going hiking
We stayed here with our 3 and 5 year old sons. The big yard was nice for them. We were here in August, the one window unit was not enough to keep the temperature comfortable. The owners are I guess slowly renovating this cabin and don't want to do work on things they will replace in the future, but a little would make a difference. For example the windows and screens needed cleaning and the bathroom new caulk. If you are just here for hiking from the park entrance nearby it would be good, otherwise it is a lot of driving on small country roads before you're anywhere and the place itself is not a great place to hang out.

4/5 Good

Traveled with family
The location is amazing. Walking distance to the White Oak Canyon trail and close to Old Rag. The owner was very responsive to emails. The place is cute, but very rustic. Very much in nature, so there were a few spiders, etc inside. This place is tiny. We had 2 adults and 2 teenagers and were tight. Also, we could not get the TV or DVD player to work.
