Great cabin with amazing views. EXTREMELY CLEAN CABIN! The hot tub looked like it hadn?t been used in a while and subsequently needed cleaned. The issue was resolved within 24 hours. We would stay again for sure!

We had a great week in our cabin. Beautiful views and the cabin was very nice as well. Beds were comfortable and our girls loved the loft area. Wish we had bigger towels for showering. Overall we were very pleased and look forward to another stay with Pa triot.

Had such a great stay! My only recommendation is updating the pictures on the website. The cabin had been redone since and looks WAY better!

Cabin was easy to find and very clean. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking pans. Yard is smaller than anticipated since cabins are fairly close together so no room for yard games. View was amazing, especially in the mornings for coffee. Only t he King bedroom has a working television and there is no wifi. Very nice washer and dryer and board games in the cabin. Deck has locking gates so our dog was safe while we hungout on the deck as well as no nuisance animals were able to come up or mess with the trash bin. Overall great stay.

This was a great experience! One recommendation and this could of been a personal issue but if you could put which town the cabin is located I think that would help with confusion. Overall the experience was great!
