Our family rented this cabin in March of 2015. Ten of us were here at one time. Having always wanted a cabin in the woods, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Really nice cabin in a beautiful part of the country. We took advantage of all of that. Our plans are to return again this spring, and rent the largest cabin. Or... More

My family of four (with two teenage girls) truly enjoyed our stay at Rim Rock's Dogwood Cabin and look forward to returning. The loaction is centrally located to many activities. The cabin exceeded our expectations as the porch was most enjoyable. I recommend referencing the "Quick List of What There is to do" under the Attractions section of the website.... More

I don't know how it's possible to spend an entire week with rain and storms and come home completely refreshed and recharged. We stayed at Eagle Retreat again and enjoyed every minute. Ample room to move around, fix food, relax. The DVR player was used more than normal because of the storms but that forced us to sit back and... More

We just finished another fabulous visit to Rim Rock's Dogwood Cabins - our 7th year in a row! The cabins are extremely comfortable and well supplied - Bob and Dixie and their team think of everything! We had quite a bit of rain during our week- long stay, and nothing is better than reading (or napping) on the screened porch... More

We enjoyed our stay in the cabins. It's a great setting and it was perfect for our family gathering. I wanted to give it more stars but there were several small things that need attention. The cabins have bath towels but no hand towels or washcloths. Some of the kitchen towels are really grungy and stained. The plates, glasses and... More

Even though we were only there for a short trip, we wished we could have stayed longer! The cabins are located in such a peaceful location and are stocked with amenities any traveler will find useful and comforting. In addition, Bob and Dixie were extremely welcoming and we cannot wait to stay with them again in the future!

Dixie and Bob welcome us with open arms, when we checked in to our cabin. We drove 7 hours to get away from fireworks in our neighborhood, our dogs hate the noise.

Stayed in a cute cabin with a large screen porch, living room, kitchen and two bathrooms. Was a bit dusty but very comfortable, dog-friendly and met our needs. Owners are super nice. Hiking trail across the street. Had our own fire pit with plenty of seating around it. Would stay there again!

I booked the Cougar Bluff cabin after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint.
