Testimonials

Big Sky Cabin
The house was very spacious and we like that you can have people gathered in the kitchen, living room, or game room without being on top of each other. The game room, large kitchen, fire pit, and large outdoor area offer something for everyone. It’s a bit of a drive off the main road, but for us that was the appeal. Short drive to the wine trail too! Kitchen included enough dishes and tools to make breakfast for a group. Easy check in and Brian was a great host. We will stay again.

Alto Wine Trail Loft

This is my third year staying at one of the lofts, and there’s a reason I keep coming back. I absolutely love the character and location and the owner is always attentive and very helpful and friendly. It’s clean, well stocked on everything you might need, and provides some privacy without having to be in a more rural cabin- every time I’ve stayed here, there’s been another group in the other loft and we’ve never heard or been disturbed by them and, to my knowledge, we’ve not bothered them which is great for a getaway weekend. I recommend the loft to all my friends planning a trip to Shawnee!!

Cabin On The Creek

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate my birthday and it was absolutely fantastic! The cabin itself was tucked away and secluded from the hustle and bustle of the world, yet not far to get anything we needed. The inside of the cabin was so clean and modern, yet cozy and comfortable. We loved sitting around the fire pit at night and listening to the creek in the morning. We had great communication with the owner and had everything we needed our entire stay! Would absolutely love to visit again! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

A Perfect Getaway

This property was perfect for our girls getaway to hike and enjoy some wine. Everything was immaculate and had all that we needed and more. 7 trails, 5 ziplines, and 2 wineries filled our days so that we could enjoy our evenings comfortably in the loft playing games, listening to music and making our own meals.

Brian is an excellent host – would definitely come back!

Great Getaway in Wine Country

This loft is in a great location in the middle of the 11 wineries on the Shawnee Wine Trail. The sheets and towels were soft like hotel grade. They even had WiFi available! Brian was great to work with to make sure our stay was wonderful. Totally recommend this place and plan to come back.

Modern, Spacious, Clean, Perfect Location

This loft is so beautiful!! Perfect location – less than 5 minutes from 3 awesome wineries and an Orchard, and very close to Balk Knob Cross. We loved being able to finish up the day at a winery and be back home within just a couple of minutes. Brian was so helpful and responsive as we prepared to book, and offered several great suggestions for food and drinks. The knotty pine floors, high ceilings, and exposed brick offer a perfect mix of modern and vintage. Living room has nice furniture, good lighting and TV offers many channels. Kitchen has everything you need. Fridge is cold, and coffee is provided. Beds and bed linens are super comfy, the towels are hotel quality, and there is plenty of TP, body wash shampoo, conditioner and a hair dryer. Shower gets hot. One of my favorite things is the door hooks in each room! Everyone loves hooks. 🙂  It was in the 30’s at night when we were there and heater worked great, kept us very warm. Also, there were two fans provided. Can;t think of one negative thing about this property….we’re already planning our next visit. It’s within walking distance to a small store where you can get soda, ice and sandwiches. Even though property is in town, it’s quiet enough that is doesn’t feel like it.

Plenty of parking right out your front door. Got home after dark, late in the evening and we always felt very safe. The drive between Alto Pass and Cobden has stunning views with a lookout point less than a minute away – go catch a sunset there! And, you can walk right outside your door, head to the right and take a trail to a lookout point where you can see Bald Knob Cross. I’m pretty picky about where I stay and like the comforts of home. I highly recommend this loft and will be bringing back family and friends. Thanks for a lovely stay!
