“One year wedding anniversary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

To celebrate our one year wedding anniversary, my wife and I decided to relax for a couple of days away from our busy schedules. By word of mouth, we heard about a great campground called Forest Ridge near Marienville that offers cabins with hot tubs. Since we both enjoy the outdoors and hot tubs, this seemed like the perfect place for our vacation. Boy were we right! The cabin (Adirondak) was very clean and still had a rustic feel. It was equipped with a full service bathroom and kitchen. The cabin even has a DVD player which was useful on rainy days. We were pleased to see that other guests were polite and respectful which made our time there that much better. The whole experience was excellent and very relaxing. We even bought a couple of souvenirs at the gift shop.

The owners, Lynn and Brian, are very nice and accommodating people. From the time we arrived until we left, they were always smiling and offering suggestions about the many activities/attractions near the campground. If you have enough time, they can even tell you some funny stories they've accumulated over the years of managing the campgrounds.

Our only regret is that we wished we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back.

The owners, Lynn and Brian are warm, friendly, hospitable hosts. The campgrounds and cabin I stayed in was clean, spacious and well-taken care of. The feel was homey, quiet, comfortable and relaxing. The grounds are situated well within a natural getaway and also not far from stores for, "staples" as well as horse-back riding, sight-seeing, nature-walks, and hiking. On a whole, the feel was fun, relaxing and a wonderful place to, "recharge those batteries!!" I would recommend to all: family, couples, friends, or even a single occupant.

Room Tip: All cabins are well kept and included all the comforts of home.

This was our second stay here. This time in the Adirondak cabin, just lovely. We had everything we needed and more. Our hosts, Lynn and Brian, work tirelessly to make your stay comfortable and fun. Highly recommend Forest Ridge!

The cabin was great, included lots of things you would have to pack otherwise. Spacious yet cozy and the outdoor hot tub was great. Also allowed our dog which was great, Lots of places to hike and sight see. Staff was awesome.! Very helpful and even gave us some free (barely charred) firewood to burn TWICE.! Grounds were great and nicely spaced for a secluded stay but not off in the woods. Everything worked great which isn't a small task with lots of even 5 star places and we would love to return here again. Highly reccomend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing place to get away.!

Room Tip: the smokey cabin allows dogs for a small fee.! Get the cabin with a hot tub..!!

The response we have had since we opened the Smoky Mountain Cabin to pets has been terrific! We wanted to give our guests a choice between our hot tub cabins .... pet friendly, or pet free! Our "pet people" have ALL been super guests, and have put our fears to rest about having pets in the cabins. Whew! It has been such a good experience, we even opened another cabin, the Covered Bridge, up to pets! Now our "pet guests" have a choice between one of our full facility cabins with a hot tub, and a more rustic cabin experience!

Thank you for your kind words. You travel so much it is nice to know how we compare to the other places you have stayed! Looking forward to having you join us again!

We rented a cabin over the summer and had a great time. The owners are EXTREMELY welcoming and made us feel right at home the minute we got there. We enjoyed our hikes and camping adventures and loved coming back to the campground where we were offered cake and icecream (that weekend was a birthday celebration for anyone who had a birthday that year). Very fun time and worth every penny. We'll definitely be back again soon.

This year's birthday party is July 20th, which is also Mom's birthday weekend ... which cabin would you like this time!

It was so nice to see you again in January! Wondering how the big trip to the inauguration went??? We searched the crowds, but didn't see any familiar faces....

Seriously, thank you for your kind words ... but this is really a pretty easy gig with guests like you. It really feels much less like work, and more like entertaining friends! LOVE having "guest houses" to put all of you in!

This was one of the coolest fall get aways EVER! It has been a couple of years since we've visited Forest Ridge but I would highly recommend it to anyone from couples to families. The owners are super friendly and accomodating. The cabins are spotless. And the scenery.....well lets just say that we say a black bear within a few hundred feet from our cabin as well as a herd of deer. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these cabins!!!
