“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A friend and I spent three nights at this beautiful log cabin. It was quiet, meticulously clean, and stocked with everything anyone would need for a wonderful stay, including a French press, coffee grinder, spices and a multitude of utensils. When we arrived a fire was already going inside and the outside fire circle had been prepared to the point that all one had to to do was light a match to get it going.

The construction of this cabin is nothing short of spectacular. The stairs and homemade table and chairs is a real marvel. We spent a great deal of time just looking and talking about how much work it must have been to build.

The only thing better than the cabin itself were the two wonderful people who own and rent it out. Don't miss out on a tour of their nearby, one-acre organic garden. We enjoyed a number of tasty things picked right off the vine.

This is one of the special places you shouldn't miss.

“An Incredible Getaway”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Everything about this property is just as advertised and better. The location is ideal, the views are fantastic, and the property is amazing. The hand crafted cabin is very cozy and a work of art, with many uniquely amazing construction techniques. The owners are fantastic individuals. This location offers easy access to everything you could want out of this part of the world. We highly recommend this as the perfect choice for anyone wanting to get away and recharge.

“Delightful, private, nestled in cabin”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This superb handmade cabin is a glorious retreat from the hustle and bustle of life! George and Kristina and family have created a work of art set amid their many acres of very private wood that will wrap around your soul like the warmth from the cozy wood store within. Every detail of your comfort will be seen to, every item you require is at hand, every window view is stunning. Fresh flowers, fruits, and vegetables from their garden were graciously left for us. This is a find!

“What a Gem!”
Reviewed 20 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The perfect get away... peaceful, quiet, a place to relax and leave the busy-ness of life behind. The charming log cabin is a simple elegant work of art. The hosts are delightful and helpful and respectful of your privacy. There are many opportunities for outdoor fun and downtown Sandpoint is only 20 minutes away.
