A few short steps from your car will take you to the stairs that will lead you to the front door where you are greeted by two black bear statues, but do not worry they don’t bite! To the left of the front door you will see a ramp walkway that will take you around the house to the back deck. This Barn Retreat cabin sits in an ideal location overlooking a large lush pasture alongside a peaceful mountain creek.

Walking through the front door you will find a spacious kitchen to your left with a large double sided fridge, beautiful granite counter tops, and all the appliance you will need during your stay. To your right is the welcoming living room furnished with a plush couch and matching recliner chairs for you to lounge in and watch the flat screen TV that is mounted on the adjacent wall. Continuing through the living room will lead you into the master bedroom suite and adjoining private bathroom. This room is outfitted with a luxurious queen size bed, flat screen TV, and large open closet space. The bathroom is equipped with a spacious and airy with a shower tub combo for your convenience. Also in the master suite you will find a private entryway to the outside deck. On the deck you will find a gas grill and lounge chairs. Enjoy the spectacular views and listen to the flow of the creek as your grill a delicious meal with friends.

Taking the stairs down to the lower level you will find a warm and friendly family room with your very own movie lounge for your enjoyment! Pop some popcorn, kick back and relax in the home theater style seating as you watch your favorite DVD on the big screen! Also in the living room you will find a convenient full size day bed for extra sleeping space. Continuing through the theater, you will find a bathroom as well as the second bedroom with a queen size bed. Across from the stairway you will find a door that will take you outside to the lower level deck. Out here you will see some lounge chairs and a relaxing hot tub for you to soak and unwind in.
