Our family went hiking, mountain biking, fishing, camping, and golfed all from the home base of this wonderful home in the mountains. Endless things to explore in the nature preserve and we were very comfortable at the nicely appointed Balsam Mountain Cabin with plenty of space for the 5 of us. We plan to return again soon! ”
