We are seasonal campers at the top of the mountain. We searched everywhere for a place that was secluded, quiet, inviting and affordable. We found it at Ole Mink Farm. Our experience in the last year as been nothing but positive. The owners, Mike and Debbie, (including all of the sons and wives) go above and beyond to help out... More

Our cabin, Hidden Creek, was clean and well appointed with the needed items. The resort was quiet and the scenery was beautiful. We thought we would bike around on the roads and trails, but they were too steep for us. We were only actually at the Resort for a few hours every night, but we were able to swim in... More

We stayed in one of the cottages last fall for several days. The resort is nice, being a combination of cottages, long term trailer vacation homes and buildings for entertainment. The area is well maintained and our cottage was immaculate. We enjoyed relative seclusion since it was off-season. I imagine during the summer months it would be less quiet, but... More

My husband and I wanted to take a trip with our dogs that would allow us some alone time and allow them to run and play. We found that trip at Ole Mink Farm! We booked a one bedroom cabin, but when we arrived, we were upgraded to a two bedroom (Sunny Maple) A-frame! We made an outside campfire, we... More

We stayed in the Phenix(the way the name on the cabin is spelled on the website), for the Easter Weekend. Overall, a great stay in a nice, warm, clean cabin. There are only two things I didn't care for in this stay, which I will go over later in this review. The Campground: The campground is a smaller one that... More

My(now)fiancé and I stayed at the Hide and Seek cabin for a weekend in September and it was absolutely lovely. He informed the owners when making the reservation that he would be proposing to me that weekend and they made sure that everything was ready for us. The cabin was clean, very cozy, and well stocked.

What a beautiful slice of heaven! We spent 3 days there for Christmas eve & Christmas day and enjoyed it soooo much! It's so quiet and cozy. Yeah, it was cold outside, but inside we were cozy with our fire going. Well stocked kitchen for cooking meals, cute furnishings in keeping with the "cabin" theme. We brought both our dogs... More

After dropping my daughter off at a near by summer camp, spent a delightful weekend with girlfriends in the "Phenix" cabin. Clean, quiet, good use of space...Debbie and her family were wonderful hosts! Big pool, general store with the very basic basics.

We stayed for two nights in February. Our cabin was quite cozy and stayed warm with the fire place going. Although it was only one room, we did not feel cramped. The kitchen was well-equipped; we cooked each meal in and were not lacking in any impliments. There is a town nearby with a grocery store and liquor store that... More
