"Wow, what a wonderful place! Stunning views in every direction, the quiet thunder of the water tumbling over rocks in the creek, the pristine historic cabin, and the luxurious serenity of having no neighbors within sight or sound. There are so many places to walk and explore. We spent the majority of our time on the deck, just absorbing the peacefulness of the forest and creek. And, oh, did I mention the hot tub? Clean and clear and no chemical smell. We loved sitting in the warm water after dark and listening to the creek. Thank you for making us feel at home and cared for. " -Dana & Eric (July 2019)
"A peaceful retreat. We stayed at Harmony Lodge to celebrate 10 years of being together. The cabin is beautiful, I love the history of the place, the gorgeous original windows are much bigger than the pictures look, and the views all around are breathtaking. Everything was nice and clean and they have some interesting old books we had fun looking through together. We met both Rita and Scott and enjoyed chatting with them, they are great hosts and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. And the hot tub, can't forget that, what is better than sitting in a hot bubbly tub looking out at snow covered nature? The real beauty though is the property! It's peaceful and secluded, you are surrounded by mountains and moss covered trees, the river which is a beautiful clean blue, it is exactly the kind of place where you can detach from busy life and just LIVE. We regret not staying longer and are looking forward to coming back. Thank you for having us!" -Tara (February 2018)
"As close as you can get to the quintessential cabin in the mountains experience. All of the features we would want in a cabin getaway were here... Amazing scenery, a great balance of luxury and rustic charm, and great hosts!" -Ryan (November 2017)
"Accurate listing; adventure awaits. My family stayed at the cabin after our wedding. My youngest dog has never been more excited as he ran around the property, exploring trails and freedom. My older dog was able to navigate most of the property despite her hip problem. This was a fantastic retreat from the city. The grocery store in Gold Bar had everything we needed to stay in the mountains for a week. The sights were breathtaking, especially in the hot tub at sunset!" -Ashley (September 2016)
