We are the perfect space for couples, families or larger groups. We have everything you need for a comfortable stay, including central AC and heat, a fully equipped kitchen with utensils and cookware, a deck with gas grill, as well as internet, satellite TV, games and more.


On the first floor you can relax in our great room, complete with 2-story windows, a wood burning stove, and a view to the upper level. Cook your favorite meal in our spacious and well-stocked kitchen, seat 6 at our dining room table or up to 12 with two additional leaves, or enjoy grilling out on the deck with table and chairs for outdoor dining. The first floor also has a half bath and laundry room with washer and dryer.


The second floor features two private bedrooms with comfortable beds, 2 full baths, as well as a pull-out sleeper sofa and a futon in separate alcoves overlooking the great room, each of which can be converted to a double bed for additional guests. The third floor cupola is a beautiful wood paneled room with 360-degree views of the property. A queen size mattress on a frame can be requested for this space. Smoking is not permitted inside the cabin.
