There is something for everyone at the Cardinal, a phenomenal, three-story cabin where you can truly get away from it all! Enjoy deluxe finishes, comfortable furnishings, and high-end appliances and accessories in every room of this spacious home. Step through the front door and into a breathtaking great room with soaring ceilings, shiplap walls, a dramatic wood-burning fireplace, and loads of windows welcoming in natural light and forest views. Prepare anything from quick game-time snacks to full-course dinners in the well-equipped kitchen and then dine together indoors at the adjacent table for eight or outdoors on the enormous, furnished deck. On the lower-level, play to your heart's content in the fun-filled game room complete with a large, flatscreen TV, a cocktail-style arcade game console, and a great selection of board games.

We love the stay for our girls weekend. The beds were comfortable and the house had everything we needed! Great hiking and shopping in the area that we enjoyed. Will definitely return!

This place exceeded all expectations. Comfortable, well decorated, great location close to town but quiet and with a creek out back. Plenty to occupy our kids and extremely dog friendly!
Shaun R. Apr 2021
The house has just about everything you could need to enjoy your mountain stay. The only thing that needs to be updated to make it a 5/5 star house are the beds. Not the most comfortable mattresses. But everything else was great!
Manager response:
Hello Shaun, thank you for staying with us. While we understand that sleeping preferences vary widely, we are sorry to hear that the bed did not provide for a comfortable night of rest. We appreciate your feedback and hope to host you again soon!
