“Feel the peace of God”

AWESOME PLACE!! Our family had a very pleasant & relaxing weekend at Hillside Hideaways in the Skye Cabin. The cabin was very clean, spacious & comfortable. The view from the cabin is awesome! The view across the pond and over the valley allows you to feel the peace of God while seeing His majestic works. Saturday evening we ordered wings for supper. Sunday we had family come visit us and grilled burgers on the outdoor fire pit. The kitchen was fully furnished with all the dishes & utensils we needed. What a great place to spend time with our family while creating special memories. We would recommend Hillside Hideaways!

“Loved it!”

My wife and I, and our two children, spent the night at a cabin at Hillside Hideaways. What a special experience. The cabins are spotless clean and the setting is idyllic. The place is decked with a kitchen that my wife, who loves to cook, used to prep up chicken noodle soup we brought along. And we had the special privilege of having friends who live closeby over for supper.
My son and I enjoyed walking around the pond and we watched the frogs hop back into the water. It rained overnight, and in the morning, the whispy fog hung in the dense forest in the valley. Entirely idyllic place. Highly recommended. The hosts, Ivan and Fran have a special knack for creating a tastefully furnished place and providing what a family will need who wants to stay for an extended period.
The place holds a special spot in our hearts now… we got to share the tear-jerker War Room movie with our friends who visited. We'd definitely stay here again.

“A very peaceful weekend”

My wife and I had a very peaceful weekend at Willow Cottage.
Marlene has some back trouble and can't sleep on just any mattress but these were great.
We loved the log frame porch and the quiet pond in front of the cabin and we really enjoyed the quiet walk in the woods.
Everything was very clean and your showers were great. Just want to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH and we will be back. 🙂

“We loved Willow Cabin!”

My 16-year-old daughter and I need a relaxing place for her to complete her summer reading and for me to complete a Bible study book I was reading. What a wonderful space to connect with God, nature and each other. This was just what we needed to de-stress and recharge before starting back to school and work next week. We loved Willow Cabin! We would love to return.

“Enjoyed watching the sunset”

We have never been to Holmes County. We were so fortunate to be able to stay in such a beautiful place. Beautiful everything. So peaceful and relaxing. Tuesday night we enjoyed watching the sunset. It was so beautiful over the valley. God's artistry. May God bless you as you continue to offer this great place away from the noise of life. We were celebrating our 54th anniversary.

“Cabin is exactly what we needed”

We came from Dayton Ohio for a quick getaway from three kids and all their activities, work, etc. It was perfect! We shopped in Millersburg and Berlin and had a roast beef sandwich at Boyd’s (Our son’s name is Boyd.) We golfed at Black Diamond in the most scenic and perfect day. We loved Broken Grounds Coffee for breakfast and we strolled the Pumpkin Glow. The cabin is exactly what we needed. Thank you!

“We loved fishing”

Ivan and Fran, Thank you for providing our family with the most cozy, beautiful cabin for our first ever family trip with our seven-month-old son, Jensen. The view was breathtaking and we loved fishing with Jensen for the first time! We spent some time at the Farm at Walnut Creek where we got to see plenty of animals and enjoy the Fall festivities. We enjoyed so many of the simple things this area has to offer. Thank you again and we hope to be back in the future!
