Great location, beautiful deck with a view, well-appointed kitchen.
Paul J.Aug 2022
Very relaxing, will definitely be back. Beautiful view of the mountains, close to a lot of exciting things todo. Water pressure and heat were amazing. Beautiful cabin,very clean.
But here are some details i wish i had. The black staircase is narrow and connects 1st floor(Bedroom) to the living room and 3rd floor. So no privacy for the 1st floor bedroom. Both living room and 1st floor have clear glass windowed doors that have no curtains . Driveaway is steep, also they have pots and pans if anyone is curious .

Favorite was the wrap around porch with fireplace and swing
Cristina F.Mar 2022
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Charming cabin, well situated, serene setting, beautiful deck with lovely view. Only complaints were: the Queen bed needs replacement, need for more wine glasses, and due to home being dog friendly - my son’s allergies were bad he slept on futon sofa and perhaps so did prior guests dogs 🥴other than that we really enjoyed our stay!
Thank you for your feedback, Cristina. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay overall but are so sorry for the details that were amiss. We are sorry the Queen bed did not meet your level of comfort and appreciate you letting us know this is an area we could improve upon. We will also be sure to make our local team aware that the kitchen could benefit from additional wine glasses. We are sorry to hear that this pet-friendly home may have caused your son some discomfort. Please know we have many wonderful pet-free homes to choose from for your next vacation. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to host you again soon.

We enjoyed our stay at Happily Ever Aska. The house is in a great location, close to downtown. I loved the outside decks and fireplace’s which made the house feel roomy. The kitchen was stocked well and the house was very clean.
Mei Fang S.Dec 2021
The cabin is exactly as pictured on the website. Lovely wrapped around porch with inviting fireplaces and outdoor seating arrangements were our family’s favorite hang out spots. Our fur baby enjoyed the cabin and mountain air greatly too.
Janice D.Oct 2021
We couldn’t have picked a better place! The wrap around porch with an exceptional view was by far our favorite thing about Happily Ever Aska. When not exploring the town or hiking, we spent our cabin time outside on the back porch. The cabin itself is adorable! Definitely not suited for more than 4 people, kids under 5 or the elderly. The spiral staircase can be a challenge bringing suitcases upstairs. There is an outside entrance that can be utilized for ease of access to the lower level. Only suggestion for a more comfortable stay; consider replacing the mattresses. Highly recommend staying here!
Sherry L.Sep 2021
We loved everything about our stay at Happily ever aska. We were here for a girls week.. We enjoyed our breakfasts on the beautiful porch every morning. No bugs of any kind. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the porch. The kitchen was well equipped with all out needs. Our only complaint was our stay just wasn’t long enough!!
Thanks for sharing your cabin. we will be back…
Brandy F.Aug 2021
The home was beautiful! A few things need to be addressed.
1. The patio needs to be sprayed for bees and spiders. (This is what sold us to rent this cabin. The back patio. We couldn’t enjoy it due to the amount of spiders and bees everywhere.)
2. The blinds in the upstairs bathroom. The guy was there to fix it. But said no one can see you when you get out. So he didn’t fix it for our stay.
3. The door knob on the main floor going out the back door was broke. It would t turn to open. We had to use the front door to go to the back patio. See 1. …. So it wasn’t that big of an issue
4. The down stairs bedroom could use a blind to cover the back door going out the the vet lower patio. It wasn’t comfortable to sleep and have a huge glass door right at you.
The bonus was the kitchen was awesomely stocked with all needed supplies to cook!
Hot water was great. We had no issues with water pressure. There was 6 of us as well. We had showers, dishwater and laundry running at the same time.
Would stay again… just with bug spray for the spiders and bees!
Hello Brandy,Thank you for providing your valuable feedback. We are sorry for any issues you encountered during your stay. Local staff are always available to assist if there are amenities in the home that fall short. We hope to have a chance to host you next time. Thank you.
Lindsay B.Jun 2021
Overall a nice Cabin! It is in a great Location! Really enjoyed the views and the deck. Spacious and the kitchen was nicely equipped however a drawer was in disrepair when we arrived. The water pressure issues noted from other renters still has not be resolved. We were unable to run any water in the kitchen sink to do dishes, or flush the toilet while someone was showering or the water pressure would become a trickle. The grill unfortunately did not work. The furniture could use some updating but the outdoor deck was amazing ! We really enjoyed spending a lot of time on the deck looking at the view.
We are so glad you stayed with us, Lindsay, and appreciate your feedback. The water pressure problem is due to a shared well; we are changing out the sediment filter more often to help with this. The kitchen drawer and grill are getting repaired, and a new sofa is on order. The TV appears to be working well. Thank you!

The view and location was great had some issues with carpet down stairs but were addressed promptly
Samantha M.May 2021
I highly recommend this cabin! I do not recommend it to senior citizens or children under 10 only due to the narrow spiral staircase, I feel it could be bit of a hassle to anyone of those ages. The view from this cabin is spectacular! It’s so cozy and just feels like home. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again!
Sierra W.Jan 2021
For the price, we expected a lot more from this cabin. The pictures look great, but don't be fooled! The porch furniture, bar stools, and outside fireplace were all broken. The water pressure is such that the showers barely work. The dishwasher is falling out of the counter, and while the kitchen is well-equipped, the rest of the place is not. Definitely do not recommend for families with small children or families with elderly or large members due to the stairs.
Hello Sierra, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We did communicate that the outside fireplace was being reworked before your arrival and offered to move you to a different location. The construction has since been completed. We have secured the dishwasher and the water pressure is working properly. We are currently discussing with the homeowner in regards to replacing the outdoor furniture. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope we have the chance to host you again!
Christine D.Nov 2020
We loved everything about this cabin. Beautiful views, convenient to town, and very comfortable. The only downside is there wasn’t really anywhere to walk our two dogs but at least there was a nice fenced in area. Kitchen is well stocked. We had a wonderful time here!
Jennie C.Oct 2020
Great views. Beautiful cabin. Only 1 King bed. The upstairs is queen. The website says 3 king beds. This is not true.
Renee P.Sep 2020
The set up was really nice. Great supplies in the kitchen. Perfect size for 4 people. As others said, the spiral stairs can be difficult if you're bringing bags up/down the stairs. The cabin is on a main road so except for the dog run area, there is not an area from the cabin to take the dog on a long walk. Great central location to go see all of the sites in the area.
Karina C.Sep 2020
Me and my family had a wonderful time while we was there, the cabin was everything that I was expecting even more. We will definitely stay here again. 15 minutes away from the lake , which was amazing and nice for us as a family!!!!
Jennifer W.Jun 2020
Spent four nights out of our six night reservation. Was not told or was it mentioned in the listing that the only way to access the second floor and the loft was by the spiral staircase. Very unfortunate that one of our guest had to sleep on the very uncomfortable couch in the living room because was not able to get up the staircase or down. The fenced in dog area was extremely overgrown to the point that my dog would not even go out there. On the plus side, the location was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked.The first floor bedroom was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. Have recommended that they update the listing to mention the spiral staircase as the main access to the second floor and to the first floor without having to go outside.
Hi Jennifer, thank you for your valuable feedback. We're so sorry for the disappointing experience during your visit. The listing has been updated to reflect the spiral staircase access and the yard has been serviced. We are always happy to know how we can provide a more pleasant stay for our guests. We hope we have the chance to impress you in the future!
Trey S.May 2020
Cabin had a great, open layout. Wrap-around covered porch was perfect for us and our 3 year old daughter to spend time on and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Great views, very relaxing, would definitely recommend!
Kelsey P.May 2020
Great location and wonderful view! Already booking our next stay
Jillian R.Mar 2020
The cabin was beautiful and in the perfect location. Close to downtown shopping and restaurants and close to all attractions and trails. The cabin had plenty of space, we had 4 adults, 2 kids and a dog and we never felt on top of each other. The wrap around porch was perfect for our dog to get some gated in outdoor time too.
If we had to complain about something it would be that some of the furniture could use some updating. The living room leather chair has seen some better days and the mattress upstairs definitely needs replacing. We also had an infestation of lady bugs and wasps. The lady bugs were not just a few, there were hundreds all over the place, to the point of feeling a bit gross/uncomfortable. The wasps were a little out of control as well and unfortunately my husband is extremely allergic so that posed a bit of a problem for us at times. Something should definitely be done about these issues.
We definitely didnt see any of these issues as a drawback from going back though, we'd definitely rent this cabin again. Thanks!
Mike U.Mar 2020
The cabin is comfortable for no more than 4 people. Excellent decor, secure area off of the rap around porch for your fur baby do do there business. King bed downstairs is comfortable but you will have to carry your fur baby down the spiral staircase. Due to the rainy weather we were unable to use the outside fireplace on the rap around deck. Cabin was very clean, however, the Lucky Lady Bugs were falling from the upper window. Electronic Fireplace, awesome. I would stay in this cabin again. Because of the spiral staircase, I would not recommend for seniors and large people.
Iris T.Feb 2020
Lovely place quite and peaceful.
Monique D.Feb 2020
The views are beautiful. The kitchen is open and fully loaded with all the cook ware and Flatware needed to create a 5 course meal. Great setup for 2 couples since 1 bedroom is up and one is downstairs and include their own on-suite.
Would definitely go back.
Michael H.Feb 2020
Location was great. Electric fire place was great. Very cozy cabin. We went during the down season, so the town was quiet but locals were very pleasant. There are trails not far from the cabin that my son and I took. We would stay here again.
Wouldn't give 5 stars just because there were a lot of lady bugs in the cabin. Not a bad thing, they just kept coming out of nowhere in the living room area. Lady bugs are good luck, right. Lol.
Hi, Michael! We apologize the ladybugs were a nuisance for your stay. Usually we have a cold snap that pushes them back and makes them seasonal, but that didn't happen this year. The owner has regular pest control at the home, and our staff inspects the home carefully for the lady bugs on the days of guest arrival. Thank you!
HENRY J.Feb 2020
Love the cabin but need new furniture
Sue T.Jan 2020
This cabin is in a perfect location - close to town and to the Aska adventure area. It has all the amenities you would find in a nice hotel, but lots of room to stretch out and relax. The furnishings are comfortable and cozy. The wrap around porch has plenty of seating areas and a patio heater. The lower patio has a gas log fireplace to relax by in the evenings and watch the deer. The icing on the cake is that it's dog friendly with pet bowls and a fenced side yard accessible from the wrap around porch. The ship's ladder was a challenge for our little terrier, but there are gentle steps from the lower level patio to the main level, so she had no trouble going out and around. The housekeeping was impeccable.
