Perfect in everyway

Our recent stay at Hidden Oaks was one for the memory books. As someone who grew up coming to Cooks Forest as a child I couldn't wait to do the same with my own family and the cabin and nearby attractions delivered in a big way. The cabin was perfectly outfitted, big enough for 4 adults and 2 small kids, and secluded enough to really make us all feel we were finally away from our typical busy city lives.

Thanks again and we will be back soon!

Dave: Thanks to you and your family for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in Hidden Oaks Cabin and think of us the next time you schedule time away!

Love it here

Stayed at the Buckeye 2 years in a row so far. Cabin is very clean with all the comforts of home. Our favorite thing about this cabin is the wrap around porch. It is an outdoor dream.

Good times in the Forest

Top Hill Cabins are the best. We came here a few times when our children were younger. This recent trip was a reunion of Westminster College sorority sisters from the 70's. The Hidden Oaks cabin was perfect for us. Clean, well appointed, lots of space, fire and picnic area. It was especially nice that the cabins are dog friendly. Super friendly owners and staff. We will be back.

Thank you for the wonderful review. Glad you and your sorority sisters enjoyed Hidden Oaks Cabin! It is one of our most popular cabins because of it being so remote. Thank you again for staying with us!

Wonderful, relaxing, getaway!

We come up to Top Hill cabins twice a year, usually for fall and winter and everytime we come up it has been a wonderful experience! So far, we have stayed in 5 different cabins and all are very welcoming, cozy, and very CLEAN! Thesw cabins are are great bargain for everything that is included! It has become our "home away from home" in the fall and winter, and we highly recommend!!!Christine

Christine: So glad you two enjoy the cabins and have returned for so many years and even 2 times in each year! That is amazing and thank you!

A perfect getaway

My wife and I stayed here over the weekend. It was absolutely amazing. This is the cabin I proposed to her in and we like how they've remodeled it. We had a great time celebrating our first anniversary.

Glad to hear that you came back to celebrate your first anniversary! Congratulations on your first! Also happy that you liked the renovation to Sugar Pine Cottage.

Hemlock Haven Cabin

This was our third year staying at Top Hill Cabins. We usually stay at the Douglas Fir but this time we stayed at the Hemlock Haven. As always we enjoyed our stay and the accommodations. Thanks for helping to make our family memories more memorable. See you next year.

Thank you folks for returning year after year and for the great review! Lois and Larry

Old Hickory Cabin

We just spent two nights at Old Hickory Cabin and it was fabulous. It was immaculately clean and so nicely decorated. The kitchen had everything. I could live there forever. My brother and his family flew here from California to join me and they were very impressed with the beauty of the woods and the cabin. We had three adults, two small children and two dogs and it was a perfect size. This was my second stay at Top Hill and I will be back. Thank you Lois and Larry for such lovely cabins and making my visit with my family just perfect.

Marsha: Thank you for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed the cabin and the area. That is what we wish for our guests. Thank you again and hopefully we will see you again in the future. Lois and Larry

Great time was had by all. Would highly recommend to anyone. I forgot how nice it is NOT to have any technology.

Thank you, Curtis! Many of us love our technology and/or have to have it. Glad you enjoyed a week end with out!

Hidden Oakes Cabin

We recently stayed at Top Hill Cabins at the Hidden Oakes Cabin. The Cabin was great, very clean and spacious. Hidden Oakes is secluded and provides a wonderful relaxing getaway.This is our third different Cabin rental company in Cook Forest in the past several years and Top Hill is by far the best. The Cabin was clean and well maintained. We will definitely rent from Top Hill again.


Wow! That was a great review. Thank you for writing that. We are glad you liked the cabin. Most of our guests love Hidden Oaks Cabin because it is so secluded. Am glad you had the opportunity to stay with us.

hemlock haven cabin

we booked Hemlock Haven for a two day stay we were very impressed with the cabin. very nice place. the main point for picking this cabin was the large porch because it rained our first night and could not have a fire but was able to sit on the porch and enjoy the weather. Only two things need improved that would be to add a/c and wi/fi. Other than that, it was a great stay.

Mary Jo: Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your visit. We would also love to have AC in all the cabins but it is cost prohibitive to do all of the cabins at one time. Maybe one at a time. Sugar Pine Cottage has AC but for now that is it. About WiFi, we are working on that. It is the Forest after all but we need to be brought into the 21st Century like everyone else. Hopefully, your stay was still enjoyable. Thank you again.

Autumn Get Away

Cook Forest is blanketed with God's hand touched beauty. If you love the scenic outdoors but also enjoy being comfortable while on vacation the Top Hill Cabins are for you. The cabins are comfy and cozy all the linen and cookware are provided for you. Bringing an excellent cook with you (like my husband) sure adds to the the experience. We just enjoyed our 12th visit to these cabins and are already looking forward to next year's stay!

Nancy: Thank you so much for the great review! You are too kind. We really appreciate you and your husband coming year after year. The Autumn scenery in Cook Forest is really stupendous and am glad you could be here for that. We are looking forward to your next visit. Thank you again for staying and for the wonderful review!

My family stayed at Hemlock Haven. The cabin was super clean and very spacious. The cabin was fully furnished. I was happily surprised to see that the kitchen had microwave, coffee maker, crockpot. This cabin had a nice porch with comfy chairs. The cottage was located in a great part of Cook Forest. There were trails to hike, a side road to walk our dog, and a restaurant right next door. Thank you Lois and Larry! We look forward to coming again next year!

Robin: We really appreciated your visit and your glowing review! We also hope that we see you for many more visits in the future. Your father seemed to enjoy the outdoors and the trees. It is always our pleasure to have you and your family as guests!

Nice but a few probs

We stayed in old hickory oct 1-3 cabin had everything you need however living room furniture had to be 30+ years old. We had to bring in wooden furniture from porch as my in laws could not get up from the sinking cushions. Also the outdoor fire pit has a mercury light right over top of it so having a nice night time fire is out at this cabin and there is a sign posted in the cabin saying only go for a walk in one direction from the cabin or you might be be arrested by the owners of the neighboring property.

Daniel: Sorry you had some dilemmas at the cabin. The furniture is not new but it is not 30+ years old. The furniture is a little dated so will be up for replacement soon. About the light outside, it is a dusk to dawn light and if it weren't there, you wouldn't be able to see outside. A big percentage of people staying there do like having the light outside. Sorry that you did not like the light being there. That is a really nice cabin from our point of view and we have had many great reviews about it. Replacing the living room furniture would help to fix one of your problems. By the way, the cabin is not Old Hickory Cabin, the one you stayed in is Hidden Oaks Cabin. We do appreciate your remarks as that is how we learn what needs changed at the cabins. Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will return in the future. We only have the sign inside stating about the neighboring property for your safety so that you don't get arrested for trespassing.

Sept 27th - Sept 29rh, Buckeye Cabin

My Cairn Terrier and I stayed at the Buckeye cabin. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We spent the days walking the trails and at night I binge watched DIY while my dog slept on the rug. We also had a fire in the fire pit. Very relaxing. I hope to do it again.

Sugar Pine Cottage

We recently got to spend a three day getaway in Sugar Pine Cabin. This cabin was immaculate and cozy. Our stay was perfect. Weather was warm but the cabin was air-conditioned and comfortable. The surroundings were quiet and beautiful. I highly recommend a stay there. You will really enjoy it. The owners were more than willing to give us tips and information.

Twin Oaks

Twin Oaks was superb! we will be back to visit you again since we had so much fun and enjoyed the pleasant clean cabin. Everything worked out for a great weekend and part of the week. We walked the trails and had a great time with our great granddaughter who is going on 3. She kept right up with us on the walk. They love to play at that age. We saw lots of wild animals and had a cookout with regular food and marshmallows. The marshmallows were a hit with the grandchild up to and including the adults! We never have them at home so it was quite a treat. The weather was just right too.

Pet Friendly Cabin

We stayed at the Sugar Pine Cottage 9/13/17 to 9/17/17. The cabin was recently remodeled and was beautiful and very clean. It was just the right size for a couple. It is located on the main road next to the owners house. It is a bit out in the open as opposed to being nestled in the woods as we would have preferred. It was within walking distance to a great resturant (Trails End). We enjoyed evenings by the fire. The cabin comes very well equipped with just about everything you need to cook a meal. There is a jacuzzi tub which my husband really enjoyed after our hike in the woods. One bonus was that the owners are dog friendly and we were able to bring out miniature golden doodle who made herself right at home. We had a great time and plan to return in the future.

Wonderful Stay

Aug. 27-31, 2017 We stayed at the Red Maple Cabin and our time there was wonderful. The cabin is lovely and it is so quiet because it is located at the end of the lane, surrounded by woods on three sides. We would stay at this cabin again for sure.

My husband and I got to take a very needed weekend. I have always stayed in a tent on our outings. The choice of staying at Hill Top was an excellent choice. I was looking for a pet friendly cabin and could not have picked a better choice. The cabins are very nice and well maintained. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I had several calls to them with questions about the things I would need and all were answered with interest in our enjoyment of our stay. I will be staying there again.

We return year after year

My friends and I have been going to Cook Forest for many years. Top Hill Cabins are where we stay year after year. They're always clean and have all the amenities we need. The owners are super nice. I would highly recommend these cabins.
