Recent Unsolicited Testimonials from the Overlook Guest Book

Our weekend at the cabin was nothing short of amazing! It was such a perfect trip..It did not snow while we drove up or back home..but it snowed all day Saturday, which was exactly what I hoped for.  My family had never been to the snow, so to see it come down all day was so cool.
The cabin itself was awesome.  It was so clean! I usually feel uncomfortable in hotels and other homes when staying the night, but I slept like a baby.
It was so nice to have all the amenities of home on vacation…you even had Tide in the laundry room and a brand new sponge for the kitchen!
You were not kidding when you said this was a really nice cabin.. I can’t wait to go back every year.. We are even thinking about going in the summer.
I will be telling everyone about Overlook Cabin…everyone!
Thanks so much for providing such an awesome retreat for my family!

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your lovely cabin.  This is our second time in 4 months.  We are in love with the place and plan to continue our frequent visits.

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful cabin.  We love the views, the river and the secluded feeling…truly getting away from it all.

How refreshing to find a cabin that is rustic yet elegant.  We come to the Lair of the Bear every year and this year decided to rent a house to assure comfort and hygiene for our 13 month old.  We are hooked  what a great way to bring the kids to camp without compromising the creature comforts of their mother.  You can expect us back for many years to come.

We also were Lair of the Bear campers  9th week  Gold for 20 years.  For the last 4-5 year we have decided to vacation in the area (but not at the Lair).  We have stayed in other cabins but never enjoyed them as much as this one.  We stayed for two weeks and thoroughly loved every minute of enjoying the outdoors  the lake  the river  the hikes and the cabin.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful retreat.  We hope to be back next year.

Wow!  What a lovely place!  You have a great hide-away.  We came to celebrate our 14th anniversary. We normally come to Pinecrest to camp during the summer.  But after staying here, who needs a tent!

We enjoyed our stay and love the peacefulness of it all.

Hope to be back next year.

Thank you.


We had a wonderful time in your well-equipped cabin.  We hope to make this an annual tradition with our friends.
