Had a great time. 3rd year in a row to visit BV area and this was our favorite rental by far. Creek access is great. 3 different decks and lots of relaxing areas. We had our 5 kids with us and they also said it was their favorite cabin. Just a great time and a great cabin. Property manager was extremely helpful throughout entire process and even called to check up on us to make sure all was going well.  Scott S., June 2018

We got married at this property. Amazing memories were made amidst the bubbling stream and striking views of the chalk cliffs. We held both the ceremony and reception outside. It was stunning. The home was spacious and comfortable for our guests. They especially enjoyed the game room and numerous decks on which we could relax and take in the scenery together! A wonderful place for a family gathering/event!  Stephanie D., September 2017
