“Hide And Seek Cabin-A Lovely Little Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

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. Everything you need for a romantic getaway. The owner was so nice, on the first night when we couldn't figure out how to get the DVD player to work he came over and got it started for us. They also give you a cute little bag of fresh homemade cookies when you first check in. We enjoy small, personal touches like that. There is a quaint little surrounding town if you would like to venture out but if you choose to stay in, this charmin little cabin has everything you need. We plan to go back every year now!

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 and all of us had a great time. The small fenced in area for the dogs was great because it was close to our cabin (Hidden Springs) and we took them there to let them run loose. Great area for walking and close to two state parks for hiking & fun. We will be back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Hidden Springs was our cabin. It's out of the way and away from other cabins. We loved it becau...

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. Close to Cunningham State Park and Mountain Gate Family Restaurant (save room for the pie!) if you are looking for excitement, wrong place. And regarding the campers, they are under year long leases and the campees decorate their areas with nice lighting and kitschy signage. We were sad to leave!

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 sells wine, beer, etc plus a few restaurants that we did not go to.
We saw a few shield bugs but when you are in a cabin in the forest that is to be expected.
The bed was comfortable. Note you will need to bring all of your own bed linens, towels, etc but there is a quilt on the bed.
We left the cabin as we would have left our own home and later we got a letter in the mail with a VIP card so when we book in the future we won't have to pay a security deposit- hooray for that!

It was cold so we did not enjoy any of the outdoor activitites the area has to offer (park, hiking, etc) but there is a pretty big antique mall not too far away in Emmitsburg. That town also has one little coffee shop called Holy Grounds in case you need a latte.

The grounds of the Ole Mink Farm have many RV's so you are not in a secluded location but that did not bother us as it was cold and we did not spend time outside.

I would recommend the cabins and we will probably be back.

This was an interesting place on the edge of The Catoctin Forest and Cunningham Falls State Park. The cabins were well appointed, cute and varied in size and design to suit the needs of different families. They were super clean and well maintained and their pet friendly policies were particularly appreciated. The only problem with this "resort" (as they call it) is the view of camper trailers from nearly every window and porch. If you aren't a "camper" person you probably won't care for it too much. But, if you like to travel with Fido and you're willing to forsake a more natural view for a cute cabin that is close to wonderful trails, streams and forest, then you will get along just fine.

Room Tip: The round cabin at the top of the hill is the most secluded, has a great screened-in porch with a n...

Nice, cozy resort. Friendly staff that went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. Cabin was clean, and we liked the attention to detail in the decor. Grounds were well maintained. Nice large swimming pool. Will go back again!
