We stayed at Eagles retreat and loved it! Very close to garden of the gods and rim rock. The cabin was clean and plenty of space. Kids loved the swing on the tree behind the cabin. Definitely will be back!

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 we may also need to rent Coyote Canyon and Eagles Retreat!! Highly recommended!

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. The advice was spot on and definitely enhanced our vacation. The owners were personable and responded immediately to any contact (phone and email). As I said before, we look forward to staying there again.

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 relax. Bob & Dixie are the most accommodating hosts and do their very best to give you a quiet retreat. While the silver in the drawers might be mismatched as are the plates and glasses - who cares! You're never in need of your basics and who needs more than that? I guess if you do a cabin vacation isn't for you. If you want a homey feel with privacy and beauty, can't recommend this place enough. Can't wait to go back next July...best vacation choice in

Bob and Dixie

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 during a rain storm. My dogs love "their" cabin and act like it is their second home! It's a great place to relax for a while. Thank you again for a great vacation!!!!!
