Beautiful Cabin Oasis!!!
Shannon V. – October 2016

My fiancé and I recently rented the Eagle Eye Cabin during October 2016. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the cabin is even more beautiful in person. If you’re looking for a perfect getaway to disconnect, then this cabin retreat is for you. It is like being in a luxury tree house, complete with all of the amenities you would hope for. The bed is extremely comfortable, the jacuzzi tub is perfect for two, and my fiancé loved the steam shower. We will definitely be back to the Eagle Eye Cabin and I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to plan a romantic getaway.

This home in the trees was beautiful and the perfect retreat for my husband and I. The views from the deck were amazing and I even fell asleep in the hammock. Joanie was very helpful and attentive< I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a nice getaway to the mountains. Sue, MA

Impressive cabin in remote location
Jimmy M. – May 2017

The design of the cabin is very impressive. I can see how the actual “climb” up the steps to the cabin might be a challenge for some (and slick when wet.) Overall, it was an enjoyable 3 night stay.
