We booked our weekend at this nice resort because of its proximity to our grandchildren's home but will return because of how great our stay was. When you book a cabin in the lushness of the mountains, you certainly expect, no matter how hard they may try, to find bugs and spiders to be at least a slight nuisance. Not... More

We had our staff retreat the first week of January 2015 and were welcomed with a blanket of snow. We share three large cabins with full amenities. Each cabin was clean, well maintained, and comfortable even in near zero degree weather. I'd absolutely return!

This is an excellent place to stay if you are in the area. In addition to being located in the middle of 19,000 acres of protected land our group was lucky enough to experience the location with a thin blanket of snow that was truly magnificent. The hosts are very accommodating and interested in ensuring that you experience is of... More

We stayed there for a work retreat and had a lovely time. The owners were nothing but kind and made sure the roads were salted and safe for us to drive on the few days it snowed. We rented out the 2 large cabins and one of the chalets. All of them filled our needs, and the large cabin was... More

My family and I as well as our 2 dogs just spent 2 nights there this weekend 10/24-10/26 and had a wonderful, relaxing time. We stayed it the Quiet Oak cabin and loved it. There was sufficient privacy even though some of the cabins are close together. If you want to make sure you don't have any immediate neighbors, make... More

We rented a cabin here in August ... stayed in Hidden Springs ... It was wonderful. We were away from all other cabins kind of secluded but yet still in walking distance to pool and basketball court. This is a small campground not very many cabins and the people here are so wonderful and nice. We were greeted and given... More

We stayed at the Phenix (this is the correct spelling). It was great. The area is lovely and the cabin was fully equipped. We only needed sheets/blankets and towels/wash clothes. Oh...food and beverages. :-D The family that owns OMF is very friendly and accommodating. It is clearly a family business and they seem to take pride in their properties. We... More

We stayed in the Hide and Seek Cabin. The cabin was immaculate and adorable. Plenty of firewood, clean fireplace and firepit, spotless inside. The kitchen is fully stocked. Quiet retreat, beautiful surroundings, fabulous state parks nearby. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We dealt with Justin mostly, and he was more than accommodating. I would definitely go back.
