My husband and I rented the Chanticleer Cabin for our anniversary weekend, and it was absolutely fabulous! It was just the tiniest bit tricky to find, but that makes it feel even more like Grandma’s cabin in the woods. When we pulled up, I immediately felt all of the city melt away. We didn’t even go right in, we spent the first few minutes just sitting on the large front porch enjoying the view. The cabin itself was more than I expected. It’s not a luxury hotel, but you certainly do not go without. Be warned, it is not for the bashful. The bathroom area is also the kitchen area, but that hardly spoiled the serene feeling we had. There really isn’t a quick way to any large stores, so bring what you think you need. Although, the Mellenger’s make sure you are well taken care of. We had the pleasure of meeting L.C. but that was only because he stopped by one morning to feed the donkeys. Had we not been on the porch enjoying our camp-style breakfast and walked out to meet him at the pen, the lovely owners would have left us completely to ourselves. I HIGHLY recommend staying at the Chanticleer Cabin, just not on a weekend I want to stay again. =) I will be back for the total silence and the pitch black, star-filled nights.
