Response from RimRocksCabins, Owner at Rim Rock's Dogwood Cabins
Responded Sep 27, 2018
The management of Rim Rocks Dogwood Cabins takes valid complaints to heart and responds promptly and effectively. We were at the cabin in less than 10 minutes from the time we received notification of her dissatisfaction, which came 72+ hours after checking in and when she was going to pay her balance. During our inspection with the guest the cabin was very clean, however, we did see a candy wrapper behind a futon on the screened-in porch, a paper towel that was left in a microwave, a pillow that had some dust on it from falling behind the bed and a spider/ spider web on the outside porch. There was also a chair that a previous guest must have tried to fix rather than letting us know that it broke… all the chairs were immediately replaced. While these things are regretful, we do not believe that constituted a demand for $170 credit, a threat of being turned over to the BBB or this harsh review. She asked for the $170 credit after our inspection, we offered her an $85 discount for her displeasure. She accepted our offer. Obviously, that did not satisfy her. If you are here reading this review, please make sure you read additional reviews and you will see that this is the exception, not the rule. We are very confident in the cleanliness of our cabins and our property.

Another enjoyable trip, staying in Eagles Retreat! Wonderful, unique location and pet-friendly too! Great for exploring the garden of the Gods/Shawnee Forest area or just relaxing with a book or movie.

I have stayed at many cabins in my life, and I do believe Eagles Retreat was my favorite of all. Dogwood Cabins are incredibly clean and VERY well stocked. I was shocked to realize I had way over-packed. Most places do not provide you with so many comforts of home. Being so close to so many attractions was wonderful. It was one of the best family get-aways we've ever taken our kids on. I highly recommend Rim Rock's Dogwood Cabins. You won't be disappointed.

This cabin has everything we needed for fun and comfort. There was a grill, full kitchen, firepit, enclosed porch, games, and plenty of bunk space. They have a variety of cabin sizes. We used one that had a queen bedroom, loft with queen and three twins, a couch, a pullout bed in a couch and a queen futon on the porch if the weather works out. One and a half baths took a minor amount of planning; but we had five adults, five kids and three dogs. We like this place because it is dog friendly,kid friendly, has hiking on property and all around the area, and plenty of other farm animals for the kids to enjoy petting and feeding. The owners are very friendly and helpful as well. I will definitely be returning. My brother has been staying here for several years now and the

We took a mandatory vacation fleeing from Hurricane Irma out of Florida and spent 3 days camping on our journey from Sarasota, Fl. After many hours on the road and several days without the comforts of home we decide to book a long stay at Rim Rock’s Dogwood Cabins to relax and enjoy one of the most peaceful places on earth. We choose Rim Rock’s Dogwood Cabins for a few reasons. Most importantly, at first glance was its location, literally in the middle of the main trails and sights in the Shawnee National Forrest. This allowed us to hike multiple trails per day while we were still able to return to our cabin to use the full kitchen to prepare healthy home cooked meals. The second reason we choose Rim Rock’s Dogwood Cabins was they are a pet friendly location and were happy
