Slye Cabin is tucked away in its own little gated environment. Geese, ducks, a rainstorm, and a rainbow made the skies on my first evening unforgettable. The comfortable atmosphere was immediately relaxing. The owner took an inventory of the things I would need upon immediate arrival and they were all awaiting me (coffee, milk, things for my one year old grandchild--not to mention the wonderful welcome platters). The outside gathering areas were perfect for friends and family. Just down the road from Roy Roberts State Park, it was the perfect spot to stop and put your feet up after hours hiking, fishing, swimming or playing with the grandkid(s). The location also afforded a ten minute trip to all the fast food one would want. Well appointed, the house provided plenty space for sleeping , TVs, roomy bathroom and a stocked kitchen fit for a gourmets delight. Every morning we greeted the donkeys and horse before starting the day; ending our night much the same. There was nothing that I needed that was not within touch. The owners made everyday special for my young grandson by leaving playthings to be discovered each morning on the porch! The last morning a big box became a welcomed play pen for my energetic toddler as I packed to depart. What smiles this brought! Thanks Lynn for your time and attention to our needs, interests, and concerns. Hope to visit again soon.
We had a \" Bride Tribe\" weekend and Lynn was an amazing host! I know we will all be back, with the family or just the girls! She had any and everything you can imagine, in case you left something behind. Better than a hotel ????????????
This was an absolutely top notch experience!!! Lynn was so gracious and accomodating. The welcome platters we\'re unlike anything we\'ve ever received. She even created one especially for the vegetarians in our party. We can\'t wait to return. Thank you for an absolutely wonderful weekend!!!
We live 20 miles from the cabin. My husband and I wanted to getaway for a night, not too far from the kids, but also can have some quite time being alone. This cabin was way beyond our expectations, we had a wonderful weekend here, relax, cozy, and private. We had been to a lot of places this year, National Parks and Italy?but this was the place we really enjoyed for our rest?The welcome platter and wine were heart warming gesture. The refrigerator was stuffed with all kinds of drinks and in the bathroom, there was a big selection of shampoo, conditioner, and bath oil to choose from. Mrs. Lynn provided the great hospitality, she was very thoughtful, and we could find everything we needed during our stay. We suggested to have an outdoor grill, and one week later, Mrs. Lynn sent us an email with pictures of her new grill, Lynn was amazing host. We definitely will go back!!
