Welcome to Gabriel's Cabin! While Ariel’s Nest is a contemporary classic in décor and comfort, GABRIEL’S CABIN is an experience all its own! When you walk in the door you’ll feel like you’ve entered a 19th century estate owner’s own three-story hunting lodge. Oriental rugs, plush woolen and leather upholstery and spectacular indigenous game mounts add to the rustic, yet luxurious ambiance. Sleeping up to 8, Gabriel’s Cabin is the perfect home for a family retreat or the ideal base camp for a large hunting or fishing expedition.
On the main floor Gabriel’s guests will enjoy a convenient mud-room; a completely furnished kitchen with large eat-at bar, and a guest bath and full laundry room. The two-story log and stone living room offers a wood-burning stove and gorgeous views of the river and the woods. The living room sofa pulls out into a comfy double bed, and a spacious covered deck beckons you out to enjoy the wildlife and the lighted riverbank from your rocking chairs. Gabriel's Cabin offers wonderful amenities including a laundry room with washer and dryer, big screen satellite TV, high speed internet, air conditioning and heat.
