Meet the Hosts

Owners Laban and Julie love living and raising their family in the country. They both enjoy the outdoors, walking in the woods or other nature trails, landscaping, traveling, good music, and spending time with family and friends. Julie loves working outside in her flowerbeds as soon as spring brings warmer weather. Laban loves quiet times in nature. They both love spring and are glad when winter is behind them.

Beautiful Inside and Out, Peaceful and Private

We absolutely loved this cabin. When vacationing, we usually opt for a cabin and this was the best one we have ever been to. The cabin is beautiful inside and out, and the setting is peaceful and private. (We did absentmindedly manage to lock ourselves out about 20 minutes after check in - so thank you to your son for happily bailing us out.) We loved being able to have a campfire and grill dinner outside. The hot tub/bath indoors was perfect and such a nice added touch. We enjoyed every minute at this peaceful place and will definitely be back! We even already recommended it to other family. You will not be disappointed!
