Amazing secluded little cabin. The owner makes you feel like you're staying at a friends home, Stocked better than my own home, with things to do (i.e. kayak , canoe, movies, games, etc). My wife is already planning another trip to this cabin.

How to get there
The dirt road in to the cabin is a relatively poorly maintained Forest Service Road. At times it can be a bit rough – as in ruts, potholes, and rises and drops that would be difficult for a low slung car. If there is substantial rain, some of the larger dips in the road will fill with water, and can be 6-8” deep for 10 feet or so. As a result, we recommend that you leave your Porsche at home, and take the SUV, Pickup Truck, or Van for this adventure. If you have no such option available, let us know, and ask for an update on the current road conditions.
