We drove up to the cabins and were very surprised by the beauty of the property and cabin. We checked in and looked around in the beautiful garden. What an amazing place to stay. Very quite and lovely place. The owners are very nice people! You feel at home directly.
It's clean and comfortable including a bbq.
Wilderness Glam-ping Personified
Among the evergreens of Clearwater lies a quiet, luxurious glam-ping experience. Cedar Haven offers the sounds of the wild outside the "tent", along with mini-fridge, modern plumbing and a bed fit for a king inside! The deck with adirondack chairs are ideal for relaxing after a sauna or a self prepped meal in the well equipped outdoor kitchen.
A fantastic way to ease in or out of camping!! All the perks of home with an outdoor twist.
