Grouse Hunting Party
Party of 10 hunters stayed in cabin. Size of cabin was perfect as nearly all had their own bed. We cooked every night as kitchen was fully stocked. Couches were very comfortable after spending all day in the field. Great cabin.

5/5 Excellent

Summer Fun in August
First off, Peg is a great person shonis very easy going and has an answer for all and if not asks if you have a suggestion! We had 7 people (3 different families, not related) for two days and 5 for the rest so we had plenty of room to spread out and relax! Caribou lake is all that it is cracked up to be plus, such little boat traffic, you get used to silence! We should have brought our own towels like it suggests in the details, we just have never done this at VRBO's. This as been one of the best places we have ever rented! Thanks Peg!

5/5 Excellent
