We just got back from a couples weekend at Settlers Crossing. Two couples in the Von Heinrich house and two couples in the Bohl cabin. We had a wonderful time. The cabins are extremely well preserved and renovated, and very clean. I have friends who live in houses this old and their houses are way more rickety and drafty than these. The cabins we stayed in were rock solid and well insulated, and the A/C worked wonderfully - important in August! The location is a bit out in the country, which is great for star gazing and just feeling like you've really gotten away from it all. It is super quiet at night also. The small herd of goats and two donkeys roaming the property help with the ambience. This is not a B&B for high maintenance guests, however. We arrived to the key in the front door, and a basket of baked goods on the table. A second basket arrived the next afternoon, and we left the key in the door on the way out. If you need concierge service, or want to sit and chat with the owners over breakfast, this is not the place for you. Yes, the stairs are steep and narrow, as is standard in these old houses. Not an issue for us. The Von Heinrich house was plenty big for two couples, and the kitchen and living room big enough for all 8 of us to hang out. The only down side is that the tub has a European style shower attachment that means you sit/squat in the tub and hold the shower head over you. Not an issue for me, but it would be a bit cold in the winter I think. The Bohl cabin is doll-house cute, and doll house small. Two couples is a tight fit for anything but a base of operations to be out and about. The kitchen and bathroom are tiny. It would be fine for one couple I think. And it is cozy, and did I mention stinking cute? There is also a convenience store about 1/2 mile away on the main road for quick trips for extras. I would definitely stay here again.
