At Home in the Woods was the perfect way to start off our month-long honeymoon roadtrip. Scott was an excellent host (after reading the other reviews, I'm disappointed we didn't get to meet his wife Victoria). Having a dessert for us each night was such a nice touch, and they were delicious! As the other reviewers mentioned, there was less boundary between innkeeper and guest then I am used to, but at no point during our stay did it feel intrusive. We stayed in the Smokey Mountain room and it was excellent, I loved being able to walk out our door and go into the hot tub. Having the game room and DVD library was a nice touch. The setting is beautiful, you really do feel like you are out in the middle of the woods, I'm disappointed we didn't get to take advantage of the hiking trail. Breakfast each morning was delicious, we loved sitting with Scott and hearing all of his traveling stories, we also really appreciated the time he took to show us around the house, print out a train schedule so we didn't have to drive into Chicago, and the burger place he recommended, Octave Grill, was excellent! Don't let the small amount of reviews dissuade you, this place is worthy of 5+++ stars! Thank you again for such a wonderful stay Scott. We will return!!
