“Excellent taste of the outdoors within minutes of home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2010

Our family has stayed at these cabins for the last several years and really look forward to the fall season so we can return. No phone but their are distractions (TV) for your children so you can enjoy the outdoors in peace. Bob and Dixie provide firewood for that cool night campfire and visits from the local wildlife are not uncommon. Don't worry, I'm talking primarily deer and turkeys. If you enjoy the scenic hike experience look no further. Directly across the road is Rim Rock which connects via forest trails to Pounds Hollow. Cannot say enough good things about this stay. This has turned into our home away from home.

The Dart's have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable. The cabins are well-appointed and very well taken care of. It's like home away from home, except you are in the midst of incredible scenery. If you're used to big city lights, step outside and count the stars, because you can see every last one of them. You just can't do that in the city.

You can't beat the location either--right at the entrance to Rim Rock Park. It's a very quiet, peaceful location. The resident menagerie of animals are real characters--horses, goats, guinea hens, cats and dogs. This was my second time, and I can't wait to go back.

If you're looking to get back to nature, this is the place.

Oh, and if you're lacking for something to do, there's even a book in the cabin that tells you about all the places of interest and things you can do in the area. Bring your hiking boots or your bikes.
