Happy & Rested
Our family had a wonderful time at Sam's cabin! It was exactly as described and had everything we needed. The cabin was very clean and well taken care of. I can't say enough about the communication with Sam! He answered all of our questions and went above and beyond to give us the timely information we needed. We have already discussed coming back again!

5/5 Excellent

Spring break with the grandkids
We loved our spring break vacation with our grandkids. The cabin was big enough that we were no tripping over each other. The kids loved the pool table and the video games. I loved having my morning coffee out on the deck looking at the lake in the distance. Sam was so very sweet and helpful. I would definitely book this cabin again and refer it to my family/friends. Thank you Sam again for sharing your home with my family. With much appreciation, Tony, Kelley, Hailey, Will, Sophia and Lucas

Family Christmas Cabin
My family and I spent Christmas at Sam’s Cabin. It was magical. Plenty of room for six adults and two children under the age of four. The cabin is very comfortable, cozy, clean and well maintained. The kitchen has everything we needed to cook a wonderful Christmas dinner, we did baking, and were even snowed in for three days to our delight. If you really want to get away and enjoy the mountain lake setting, you will love this cabin. Sam was very responsive and a great host. We highly recommend this cabin. Blessings The Harrington Family
