“What I enjoyed at Cheechako Cabins ... the cabins are really nice inside. It is fun to look at the llamas and feed them grass. The owners’ dog, Willow, is very friendly and she likes to shake a paw. My parents are happy to let me play outside because it is safe. Only people who are guests are allowed. I had fun playing in the meadow and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit at night.”

“Our stay at Cheechako Cabins was a wonderful reprieve from our everyday stresses. We had a great rest and enjoyed the fact that the cabin was spotless and well maintained. Each cabin has a picturesque view and is situated in such a way as to offer maximum privacy to all the guests. We’ll be telling all our friends about what a great vacation destination this is. We’ll be back!”

"Home away from home! Family run business, cleaner than my own house! The cabins have everything in them from saran wrap to paper towel to cooking spray, etc. Location is so quiet and serene. We will definitely be returning."

Our expectations were exceeded in terms of how well equipped the cabins are.  We found many activities to fill our days from hiking to horseback riding.
