This home is very comfortable. The pictures show exactly what you get. The queen in the master is very comfortable. The queen in the second bedroom is not so much and needs to be updated. This home is nice because there are 3 floors so would be good for 2 families or one family with a moody teen. :-). We really enjoyed our sunsets on the deck and the air conditioning on the two 99 degree days that we had.

Very comfortable home high in the trees with a great gas grill. Quiet neighborhood, pretty sunsets on the deck. More space than we needed, plenty of beds that were comfortable, plenty of blankets, central heating plus a wood stove kept us all warm. Our golden retriever was welcome there and honestly the main reason I chose this place but I did not feel like I was comprised I'm any way. My only suggestion is better cookware- non-stick pans and some cookie sheets would be nice. also, we didn't realize till the day we left that there was more glassware in the dining area cabinet, and we missed the newspaper in the wood box for building fire. Oops!

We had a great long weekend in this cabin. We enjoyed the fireplace, the views from the deck, the rustic decor, and the well-stocked kitchen. Less than 30 minutes to Murphys in one direction and snow parks in the other, and just about 10 minutes away from the state park. The property was clean and check-in was easy.
Manager response:

This rustic retreat was perfect for our family of five (me, husband, two teens and Buster). Plenty of room, plenty of privacy, and plenty of beautiful sunsets.

My wife and I decided to stay at the Rustic Retreat cabin for a week. The location was perfect... between being surrounded by the beautiful tall trees, and amazing views. The cabin was large enough to accommodate friends and family, but cozy enough for a couple also. We really enjoyed the patio by grilling night and day. There are several activities nearby such as hiking, and swimming. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there was no cable T.V, which would of been great during our stay due to us not wanting to go out much because of Covid-19. Anyways, Vacasa reassured us they took extra precautions with cleaning thoroughly to ensure a clean rental. We were very very pleased and would love to return.

Cute, comfortable, and well appointed! It had everything we needed for a wonderful weekend with family and friends--except for a pizza cutter for our take-and-bake pizza the first night (but everything worked out just fine lol). :-) We hope to come back again next year!

Love the location. Very roomy and comfortable. Everyone had fun. The only bad thing was there was no regular TV.

Easy entry not a lot of stairs to climb. Having AC a huge plus
since outside temps approached 104 degrees. House located in
a very nice well cared for community. I recommend it.

This cabin is very nice and has a fantastic view. We especially appreciated that not only do they allow dogs, but they have their deck set up to be pet safe with a lower railing and gates. Great cabin, highly recommend!

all the comforts of home in a quiet area of Blue Lake Springs. Wonderful deck to enjoy coffee in the morning or the evening sunsets! We will be back!! :)

Will be nice to have an updated swimming pool passes for future guests
As well as basic olive oil and coffee in the house
Otherwise fantastic!

Very cozy cabin with lots of indoor and outdoor options for activities.
Sara S. Jan 2019
We had 3 couples and a few kids and the layout of the cabin was perfect - there was enough space on the main floor for us all to hang together but also the loft and the basement provided extra space for games. The kitchen was pretty well stocked with cooking items and the host left a good number of towels for showering. The decks were nice as well. There wasn't any snow in the area when we were there but we just had to drive up the highway about 25 minutes to get in some sledding.

We just came back from 3 days over the Christmas holiday. Very comfortable home for our group of 8 people...The home is equipped with all you need to make your stay enjoyable.
