Mountain Cabin RentaL in Romania - A guest's authentic experience
We love our guests. And there is nothing more fulfilling than when we hear how much our guests enjoyed our cozy little home. The entire mission for this little cabin rental in the mountains is to give guests a memorable and happy experience in nature. Read below for one of our guests experiences at The Little Mountain Cabin.
We arrived at this beautiful place on a cloudy day, but - needless to say - everything got brighter the moment we opened the gates. It immediately felt as if we stepped onto one of those clouds that surely float around in Paradise.
The fountain outside reminded us of the familiar warmth we perceived growing up in the countryside; we started imagining the contours of an old lady drawing water out of the well, while an old-moustached man would work on his (defintely one of a kind) little cabin in the mountains.
As soon as we got inside the establishment, the smell of wood and home took us over by surprise and, as we started unpacking, we knew for sure that we must have arrived in a magical place.
Sitting by the fireplace, sharing stories and reminiscing about the days we’d play around as kids - these are the things that made our bond even stronger, so we find it fitting to thank you for this amazing adventure!
May kind-hearted people always cross your paths - even if it’s just for a little while, it is, for sure, life-changing!
This place feels like Heaven! We were in complete "awe" from the moment we opened the gates to this picturesque setting. It is more than obvious that Weston and Daniela put their heart into making every moment of anyone who'd be staying here revolve around a feeling of uniqueness, warmth and serenity. They have built something everlasting and, for sure, one of the most beautiful and cosy little cabins in this country. We were truly happy to see and take part in something different and, honestly, one of a kind adventure. Everything about this place made us, wholeheartedly, feel like home. Hope to return soon, it was a revealing and extraordinary experience!

The search for a place to live in Romania began. Weston was an avid outdoorsman, so moving into the city was out. The wedding was to be on July 5th, and Weston was leaving on March 1st for work in the States for a two month stay, so time was short. They began entertaining the idea of building a small cabin, as it would provide Weston with work to do, and it would be a long term solution, as they could stay in the cabin on visits to Romania in the future. As luck would have it, a beautiful location was actually for sale in the foothills of Muntele Mic. It was an empty field, but the views were awesome, and it was private, peaceful, and had a rippling mountain stream in the backyard. It had the quiet serene beauty of the forest.
So before Weston left on March 1st, they bought their little piece of land. Upon returning to Romania in the first week of May, the planning for construction began full swing. Thankfully, with much perseverance, things began to fall into place. In Romania log construction is rare, and it was difficult to find materials and options. After a lot of searching, they found a company to build the log structure, and the permits all came through in the nick of time. Six weeks before the wedding, they broke ground on the foundation. Weston, Daniela’s two brothers, and her Dad worked from sunup to sundown daily. Waterlines had to be dug, electrical cable needed to be buried, excavation and grading needed to happen. Finally, the foundation was finished and the construction team arrived to build. Three weeks before the wedding, the walls began to go up.
The weather was hot, delays and challenges came up daily. But with the wedding days away, motivation drove them past the road blocks, and somehow a solution was always found. Daniela was working hard making food for the hungry workers every day. Meanwhile everyone was in the flurry of making wedding plans and arrangements. Needless to say, they observed in dismay as the sun set each evening. Another day was ending, and they had to wonder… would things be ready in time? Would they have a place to live by the time the honeymoon was over?
But God has a way of making things work out, one way or another. A week before the wedding Weston’s entire family arrived. It was the boost everyone needed. With fresh help, things just went faster. Everyone was busy, right down to Weston’s littlest sister, Kezia. 2 days before the wedding, the doors and windows were installed. The electrical and plumbing were finished. Albeit, with no electricity yet. (They would end up living without electricity until September)
