“We stayed in the queen cabin and it was freaking adorable. We loved the jetted tub in the bathroom and firepit outside. The cabin was extremely clean and cozy. The rocking chairs on the front porch were an amazing touch. And the best part about it is that it’s pet-friendly. My dog had a great time smelling all of the new smells and exploring. An adorable little place to get away, even in the off-season.”– Kris Oh
Visitors can let their kids run free at the playground or take the family on a hike. The resort has over 150 acres of trails to be conquered, and is located just 10 miles from the 420-acre Varden Conservation Area, a great place for the birding, hiking, and wildlife watching. When you need a snack or flashlight, head over to the general store, but save your appetite to dine at the KC Pepper Bar and Grille, located right on the premises.
