The Master Suite is located on the main floor of the cabin, with a very comfortable king size bed with a down comforter, a television with satellite reception and a private bath, as well, access to the front screened porch. The loft area opens to the family room and you can enjoy a quiet afternoon reading a book or taking a quick nap on the love-seat. Very open and bright, the family room is also great for kids to play games on the large, clean floor space. The two upstairs guest bedrooms are adjacent to the loft area of the cabin. One room has a queen size bed with a down comforter, desk/vanity area and access to the shared bath located in between the bedrooms.
