We loved our stay!! The cabin was so cozy and cute; we quickly felt at home and comfortable. The wood burning fireplace and jacuzzi tub were perfect for a quiet, peaceful weekend away from it all. Only a five minute drive to Main Street but still far enough away to feel secluded, it's the perfect location. Highly recommend and will... More

What a lovely place to stay. As long as you go into your visit with the expectation that you're staying in a very old antique log cabin, you'll love it and have a wonderful stay. We found the habit of leaving your signed wine bottle cork behind a quaint tradition that we gladly followed. Our cabin, the Smith, was conveniently... More

Thank you for your review!! As stated when you checked in, you can call any time for ANYTHING. If you would have pointed out the light bulbs that were burnt out I would have gladly done what I could to replace them. As it stands, I can't find any cabins with 4 bulbs burnt out....give me a call or send... More

We booked a room for a weekend but upon arrival we knew things did not bode well when we drove up and saw the property was not kept up. There were a lot of weeds mixed amount some really nice flowers and plants. We then entered the office in the main building to find it disorganized and filled with some... More

"you might appreciate this place but it was just not for us." Truer words were never spoken :) I hope the rest of your weekend was pleasant. More

We loved how quiet it was! The Coach House was rustic and modern in all the right proportions. A little worried on arrival that a busy road and local football game would carry into the space but all was quiet in the night. Pet-friendly was a big concern, too, and it is always a relief to find a place with... More

The cost of gas and electricity actually drives our prices. I hope to one day install wind turbines and solar panels and eliminate those costs altogether.....that will be first on my list after the upgrades we are making this year. I need some repairs done on the cabins first and some paint on the main buildings. I've started the painting,... More

My boyfriend, daughter and I spent the weekend in the Coach House along with our small, anxiety ridden pup. It was perfect for what we were looking for. Quiet, cute, and cozy. The coach house was very clean, no bugs, spider webs...nothing! We loved our stay, it was super close to downtown and a Walmart was right down the street.... More

Our cabin was the upper level of the original home's coach house. the owner was a General and kept the carriage in the lower level and his driver lived in the "cabin". as mentioned in the other reviews, the small "apartment" has floors that are original and the decorations like wall papers, paint, towels etc are all appropriate for the...

We stayed in the Parker Cabin for two nights in Aug 2013. We really enjoyed our stay. I have stayed in a lot of cabins in the last two years from Mich to Tenn. This is one of the nicest. You have to understand, these are Rustic Cabins. These are not brand new cabin replicas. These are the real deal... More

My wife and I loved the cabin, which has been around since the early 1800s and had a truly rustic feel. A foremost priority for us was finding a pet-friendly place where we could bring our dog. The $25 pet fee was reasonable. We loved the word burning fireplace, and the jacuzzi was a nice touch too. Beds were adequately... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last week for 1 night before spending the rest of the weekend on Main street with friends for the Luminaria festival (which was unfortunately cancelled due to rain). It was so wonderful!!! We stayed in the Rawlin's cabin. Everything was perfect. Very quaint, private, and cozy. We felt like we were "roughing it" but... More

My husband and I stayed there on 2008. We stayed in the Grant Cabin. We LOVED the idea of a log cabin and the rustic-ness of it being on a farm. We would wake up in the morning to the sounds of cows mooing in the pastures right outside our window. It had tranquil and absolutely serene views of the... More

I see you stayed in 2008. I am the owner's daughter, Tammy and I have been here since August of 2011. We have terminated the previous managers and I am now the sole manager and housekeeper (with some help from my son). I have made some major improvements and I do all the housekeeping myself.
