“Fun times!”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

We enjoyed our stay at cabin #8! Friendly people, comfy, clean & we really enjoyed our stay here. This cabin is more for short people but it had everything we needed, kitchen, bath, toilet....everything you need for camping! Also had cable but we were not interested in that. We would reccomend this place to anyone.

Upon arriving, we were greeted with very friendly service. The cabin was clean and, to our great surprise, exceeding our expectations. The atmosphere of the cabin was stellar with its charming living room, dining room extension, and quaint but roomy bedrooms. The wood burning heating adds an extra charm while the fully supplied kitchen goes beyond expectations. Truly a fantastic experience. We will certainly be looking at these cabins for future stays.

We were completely satisfied with our "escape" weekend in cabin 6. The fireplace and decor were perfect for a restful stay. We found a pleasant mix of amenities and "roughing it", in one package. Kudos to Paula and Andy for your efforts. We are already planning a return trip in warmer weather. Hell, we may invite the kids! Thanks again!

Room Tip: cabin 6 great for quiet, romantic getaway!

We have visited Cook Forest many many times. Usually we will stay at The Gateway Lodge or at Evergreen Cabins. Wanting to experience a new place we booked at Hominy Ridge. Owning vacation real estate myself, and having short-term tenants, I wanted to offer some suggestion to the ownership to improve business since they are apparently unaware of some basics.

First, All businesses today need to accept credit cards for payment, deposits, etc. Wanting to avoid the cut that the major cc companies take by demanding cash/check payments irks your customers and puts you at a disadvantage. It is the cost of doing business today sadly.

Second, as a property owner you cannot treat all of your customers based on the bad experiences that you have had in the past with unruly ones. Meaning, all of the warnings, rules, expectations, need to be streamlined into an agreement form that is explained and then signed by the renter when arriving. Notes every ten feet are childish and borderline offensive to renters - your competitors do not have these.

Lastly, in regards to the extras that are available to your customers, there are better ways of restricting access than a large master lock. Locks say you are not welcome! If a customer pays for a service a key could be given that allows for access. Inexpensive electronic locks are available also - I use these and they work wonderfully and allow me to track times and users to keep renters accountable. Once again, please do not treat all of your customers as if they are going to behave badly and cause damage.

Overall this property is beautiful, well kept, and the cabins are very nice. The reviews about water problems, etc are nonsense. I know that the owners keep up with this site and will be reading this so please consider the above and make some small changes. Believe me, when you put your paying customers first your business will explode. After all that's the point right?

Thanks you for your response. We take pride in our business so much that we do have to treat everyone the same. Unfortunately there have been a few bads experiences. We also work hard to keep the money in our pockets rather than making the credit card companies rich. This allows us to save for important renovations that we know the customer in the long run will appreciate more than just having the option of usng their credit card or not.
We have 1 thing under lock and key and that is the hot tub. It is outside and not able to be supervised visually. We have small children running around and have to protect them. And if we were to just give everyone a key then who is to say that the cover would be replaced so as not to freeze up in the winter. This is the best way to monitor this item.
We do appreciate each and evey response and take into consideration each review.

We were going to stay as a Bachlorette party, and as the days came close to arriving our plans changed into just an amazing weekend with my two best friends. As I was reading the past reviews, I had noticed a lot of people complaining over the water situation, uneven ground, etc. However, as a hotel front desk employee, I came to find that you will never satisfy a guest 100% to their every need. I believe that if you are traveling to Hominy Ridge (or any cabin in the woods), you need to expect to "rough it." It is NOT by any means a full service hotel. They hand you the key, and you be on your way. That is exactly what I expected, so therefore I was not disappointed in any means. The water did smell like Sulfer at times, but we made sure to take up a case, and two gallons of water. We made sure to go grocery shopping before we arrived, and anything we forgot we just bought from their on-site store, which had almost everything you can ask for! The prices in the store were fairly priced. I mean there's not really another store in the near area, so if the prices were a little higher than normal, I understood basically for the convience. The cabin was so much nicer than I had even anticipated. It looked almost like it had just been renovated! We took our own DVD player up and found it wasn't compatible for their TV, so they let us borrow theirs! It was nice because it also had a VHS, which is now hard to find these days! My friends and I basically stayed inside the whole time with a little exploring around the area (being that we were the only ones there throughout the whole property). There were plenty of activities in the area, however it wasn't really the time of year for it. We made homemade beef stew that lasted us the whole weekend. I loved the place, it was exteremly quiet and peaceful, and my friends and I plan on making this a yearly event. Thank you Paula and Andy for providing us the place to put our rough times behind us and enjoy so many great memories!

Room Tip: If you have 3 people or less, I would definatly reccommend staying in cabin 6! It's the perfect...
