A Simple Life is a spacious three-story cabin that can easily sleep a large family or group up to 10, with room to comfortably gather everyone in one place. Enjoy preparing meals or left-overs from area restaurants in your cabin with an inviting airy kitchen fully-equipped with modern clean white appliances and a breakfast Bar that can seat two and a cozy table that seats six guests. Sit and take comfort from the stacked-stone fireplace while enjoying the flat screen television in the relaxed family room.
For extra sleeping space the couch folds out into a queen-sized bed. The master suite is located upstairs in the loft and includes vaulted ceilings, a gas fire place and a bedside jetted tub. There are three other guest rooms, one with a king sized bed and two each with a queen sized bed. Want to raise a little ruckus? Located in the loft is the game room with a pool table and arcade game. In the lower level den, enjoy a game of checkers on the card table or kick back and look up to the movie screen, perfect for family time and popcorn.
Ready for some fresh mountain air? Come on out to the expansive porch and have your choice of relaxation: soak your evening away and enjoy the pristine mountain outlook while in your private hot tub or take in your morning coffee and sunrise while rocking your troubles away.

Left on 07/01/2015 for a stay in June 2015 | X7479NWrichardcReviewed Jul 1, 2015Stayed Jun 2015
This was our second stay at this cabin the first time three years ago. The owners have not kept the cabin up. The microwave control panel was damaged and almost ready to fall off. The carpet on the lower level needed to be replaced or cleaned. The grill was filthy and the kitchen was not equipped as well as before. Overall just seemed to be run down. The trash can shelter outside was in a very poor state of repair and needed to be replaced. The best feature is the view and location.
