We had such a great stay here. It was a great staycation for both of us. The inside of the cabins were beautiful and the food and wine were both delicious. I had a nice evening sitting on the patio and watching the leaves, sitting in the whirlpool tub, and laying by the fireplace. The only thing that I would... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the cabins. The cabins, nestled in a wooded area, provide a private retreat but are nicely finished and furnished. A cabin the size of a suite furnished with a fridge, tv, king bed, and jacuzzi tub (not to mention a complimentary bottle of wine) at $115...this is a beautiful get-away priced like... More

The wine is very good, there's a sweet cat who hung out around our patio, and the little lake and path were lovely. There were ants in the window of our first cabin so we called down and told them, a girl came about 20-30 minutes later and moved us to the cabin next door. There were ants in that... More

We went to hidden lake winery for a quick retreat. They had a winter special for $99/night for a cabin. The cabins are amazing. They aren't huge but very cozy and have everything you need for a romantic or just relaxing retreat. The wine is great. If you are looking for a place to get married, this place is very... More

If you are looking for a place to escape from the city for the weekend - this is it! Cute cabins in wooded seclusion. Stayed in honeymoon cabin - hubby took advantage of the heart shaped jacuzzi. Ample room, good sized bathroom and lovely walk to winery for tastings and a meal. Only concerns are better reading lights for bedtime... More

My husband and I have now had two romantic getaways to the Silent Forest Retreat Cabins. Once was for an anniversary celebration, and the other was a get away from it all Wednesday. The cabins are lovely. The heating/cooling unit is effective, albeit loud. I don't like the lack of counter space in the bathroom. And those are my only... More

The first time I took my wife to Hidden Lake Winery, she didn't have a clue to where we were heading. On the way to this hidden gem, there is nothing but farmland (corn crops galore). All of a sudden you land into this enchanted area. The ambiance is great. The cabins are cozy and inviting for quick romantic weekend... More

We stayed in one of the honeymoon cabins last month at the Aviston Hidden Lake Winery. I would of given this an excellent rating except for a few shortfalls I'll touch on in a bit. There were 2 couples in our group, all of us in the late 40's to early 60's range in age. Check in was easy, our... More

Without our GPS, I think we might still be looking for Hidden Lake Winery. We didn't really get to enjoy the grounds, since the weather was not user-friendly the 2 nights we were there. The cabins are very well designed and well-kept. The lights are on switches like I had never seen, and we had to go back to the... More

Great room...nice brunch...live music in wine garden. Favorite item....the "James Taylor" sounding musician during breakfast-brunch..so relaxing and lovely. Could have stayed all day just listening to him. Wonderful country setting with nice evening restaurant and morning brunch on Sundays. Personnel were all friendly and courteous. Would return...only draw back...small kitten using our porch rug for you know what.
