LOVED this place! Cabins are very nice and at home feeling, people were very pleasant. River just outside was so cool. Fishing was fun, nice walks along the shore. They offer horse back riding and an array of other things.

My husband and I recently stayed at Cottonwood Cove for 4 nights. This is a great place for a mountain getaway. The customer service is absolutely awesome. Be sure to visit the gift shop and don't miss the ice cream shop.
