At the same time, this cabin offers private and secluded at the end of the road location with plenty of parking space, bring your favorite toy on a trailer to enjoy mountain roads or clear lakes in the area if you like. Second level has great traditional cabin feel with exposed beams in the ceiling, tongue and groove walls in dining area and wooden and stone tile floors along with big stone fireplace. These combined with rustic dining set, comfortable sofas, 42' HDTV and lots of windows letting the light in make this level great for get togethers. The deck outside has very nice and private Leisure Bay hot tub, big 7'-9' square which seats 8, has lots of jets and changing colors for those dark nights. Deck wraps the house and is 12' wide, has nice dining set and big Char-Grill Duo grill with one side propane gas and one side charcoal along with sideburner. There is also good set of utensils to cook great steak from local grocery store. Terrace level has spacious game room with carpeted floors and special steel ceilings along two private bedrooms which have closets and queen size beds. The game room has pool table, nice sofas, one recliner and the other turns into queen size bed, and of course TV and DVD player. The terrace level doors open outside and there is a simple firepit for roasting those marshmellows under stars. The upper level is dedicated to master bedroom, bath and private balcony. The bedroom floor is covered with carpet and huge bathroom has tiles while walls are tongue in groove type wood panels. There is massive king size log bed, TV, closet with hangers for clothes and a nightstand. On balcony there are two log style rocking chairs to enjoy the view. The Bavarian Pit Stop Cabin is suitable for families with kids, groups of friends, motorcycle and trailer friendly. The cabin has three stories with stairs, although the staircases are straight and extra wide, it still has limited handicap accessibility to the levels with bedrooms. Being on top of the mountain close to the city it has very good cell phone service. More

Thank you for your stay. Yes, AC needed some attention because it was turned too low by previous guests and froze. We got it back running the first night of new guests stay without further issues. Thank you for letting me know!
