We had a beautiful stay - just remote enough, National Forest trails across the road, quiet, good locale for dog, clean and fresh, very comfortable, and the BEST star viewing we have ever experienced. We will be back!

We loved it! Its in the middle of nowhere, but yet not to far from a town. The inside of the cabin was clean, and they even had things we might need like spices for cooking. Definitely will go back soon!
