Had a wonderful stay at Blanche's Retreat. The team at Cottonwood Lodging was super communicative, friendly, and helpful. The home is in a great location to Brighton/Solitude, spacious, and comfortable. Would highly recommend and hope to come back in the future.

We had a family get together at our cabin nearby and needed a place for our family and friends to stay. This cabin was the perfect place. They loved it. It was within walking distance. Would definitely rent again!!

The house had plenty of room for our family of six adults. We especially loved the big dining table! The property was clean and had a lot of character. Great hiking nearby. Kayaking and SUP was farther away, so we made two day trips to the Kamas area for that. All in all, we enjoyed our stay very much!
A Perfect Family Holiday,

This cabin easily accommodated our family of 10 including 4 children. The home was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the large fireplace was a great place to gather for family board games after a day of skiing, sledding, snow-shoeing etc. Everyone wants to come back!

We had a great stay! The area surrounding the cabin is simply beautiful. Lots of room to walk in the woods, very private. Able to walk to Silver Fork Lodge for breakfast.

I had planned a ski trip for a group of guys from 3 different states. The cabin was perfect. Clean, plenty of space and lots of choices for beds. Will be booking here again for the next ski trip!

Stunning views, secluded location, and a very well-maintained cabin fully stocked and incredibly inviting. I couldn't have wished for a more perfect atmosphere and quality of stay.

It was big, with plenty of room, and definitely felt nice and cozy. Stayed with 6 other people, and we all had a great time.
It definitely could have used some better cooking equipment. For instance, none of the knives were sharp, so trying to cook a meal was torturous (cutting chicken thighs? had to saw through them to cut anything. Annoying and dangerous). Also some better pans would be nice (most of the ones there were flaking teflon and so on).

Also, no wi-fi. Plenty of phone data available, but having wi-fi would definitely have been nice.
