On last day attempt to book anything in the area, we called CaveInRock lodge: spoke with manager & she went over the top to fit us into a booked situation. Well Well done. We stayed in Cabin 3B right on the Ohio river. Balcony let us enjoy bottle of wine with the stars. This cabin is very clean, well done... More

My husband and I stayed here on our trip to Shawnee National Forest. He read the reviews so we decided to stay here. This was better than the pictures.Very spacious. It was just the two of us, however, if our children came, there was plenty of room for all. We stayed in 4B. Great place. So quiet and peaceful. The... More

My husband and I stopped at the State Park to see the Cave in Rock on a road trip through the National Forest the last weekend in Oct. We decided to eat an early dinner at the State Park restaurant since there were not many choices is the area. Our waitress was a nice young girl who tried very hard... More

The cabins have a great view of the Ohio River, and a balcony you can sit on to look out over it. Alternatively, if is cool and windy (or rain), there is a nice picture window with the same great view. The cabins are a nice, (not five star NYC) and have everything you need. Good air-conditioning/heating, TV, fridge, microwave,... More

The rooms are clean and well kept. From our porch each morning we watched the river roll past and the wild turkeys eat their breakfast as we enjoyed our morning coffee. The hummingbirds were at hit with us and we could watch them for hours as we enjoyed our breakfast in the restaurant. What a beautiful and relaxing place to... More

From what we had heard from a friend who stayed a few years back, it sounded like the lodge would be outdated and maybe not so clean. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness, spaciousness, room supplies (paper towels, kitchen dishcloths and soap, etc.), freshly painted/papered walls, new bathroom linoleum, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and more! The BEST part... More

Stayed here 2 nights at the end of September. Room was comfortable and clean. Spent both mornings and evenings on the deck enjoying the view. Restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. We plan on staying here again and encourage anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing stay in a beautiful location to do the same.

We stayed in 3B fantastic view of the Ohio River. Very large room much more than we expected. No plates, etc. microwave coffee and frig is about it. The restaurants hours are limited. But it was a very pleasant experience, so I would say you would not be disappointed. The drive to get there is beautiful drive, just a quaint... More

My husband and I have lived only an hour away from Cave-In-Rock most of our lives and are now kicking ourselves for never staying at this beautiful location before now! Although we did have neighbors and did hear an occasional door or voice, this place was still so much more quiet than staying in a conventional hotel in the middle... More

Took a quick trip to see Cave in Rock, Garden of Gods and Shawneetown area before taking the ferry to explore Kentucky. Stayed at the lodge and enjoyed the large balcony overlooking the Ohio River. Enjoyed the stay in a comfortable room.
