Our cabin was well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. Loved having our dog with us to share the experience. Tara and Steve are great hosts! Loved exploring Garden of the Gods! I know there is much more to see. We will be back!

Charming cabins in a family friendly setting. Travelled from ireland via chicago to see the eclipse and arrived a night early. We were accomodated in an alternative cabin that was unoccupied without any fuss. Cabins were very comfortable with everything we needed. Great location with rim rocks walking distance and pounds hollow lake 2 miles away. We went there most afternoons with 3 kids. We bbq'd at the cabin some evenings but also ate at some local restaurants. Dari barr in golconda was our best meal out. Unassuming restaurant but food was excellent. Very friendly staff. Also, good food at double m campground although much more casual. Mackies pizza in harrisburg was also good. Kids loved the animals at the farm and the new owners were extremely friendly and helpful.

Friendly and courteous. Conveniently located to the parks! Bring bug spray, you are in the woods. Bring peppermint oil for the occasional tic. Plan your meals and bring everything you need, store is 1/2 hour away.

We've been coming to these cabins every July since 2010 and this year did not disappoint. These cabins are magical, and the new owners are doing a nice job of maintaining the character and the "soul" of the cabins. I'm already looking forward to next year!

The cabin was adorable and very clean. We appreciated having wood to use for our campfire. The cabin was conveniently located near so many great hiking places. We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Shawnee!
