A Pleasant Surprise
Tolson Cabin was a great fit for my fiance and I, and another couple. I was skeptical about this house, because there weren't a lot of pictures posted on the website when I booked. The house was perfect minus the bathroom. I had to give 4 stars instead of 5 because of the clawfoot tub. The shower curtain was almost impossible to keep closed, and when you did get it closed, it managed to stick to every inch of your skin. The tub goes with the rustic feel of the log cabin house, but it was not functional. An installed shower stall would make a huge difference. Another recommendation would be to put a screen door on the door from the house to the screened in porch. There is a wonderful breeze that comes off of the lake, and its a shame you don't get to enjoy that. The yard is huge! What a pleasant surprise. We were concerned about having space to park the trailers for the boats, but there was plenty of room. The dock was perfect for two bass boats. You are on part of the busy section of the lake. It seemed to get a lot of boat traffic to UNOs and the Honi Honi. It did not stop us from floating in rafts and playing in the water though. The beach, and two beach chairs were so nice to have. The yard is private, although very close to the main highway (you do get some road noise), it is down a wooded, gravel driveway. UNOs pizzeria, the Honi Honi and Arrowhead market are all within walking distance, as is Ace's Run restaurant. Overall, such a wonderful place to stay. I would highly recommend it, and would definitely stay there again.
Traditional with a twist! Tolson Cabin is a beautifully crafted cabin with its own private beach!
