Highly recommend

If you are looking for a cabin in a wonderful forest setting, I highly recommend Top Hill Cabins. My wife,myself ,and our dog prefer Sugar Pine Cottage.
Very well maintained, knotty pine decor,with all the modern amenities. It is basically an efficiency set up,and it is perfect for us. Love to explore the many local trails in Cook Forest, relax on the porch,and enjoy meals at the Trails End restaurant that sits next to entrance of property. Looking forward to our next visit.

Old hickory

My family and I stayed at the old hickory cabin April 27-30th 2018 we have been to cook forest every year now for the past 4 yrs and this was the nicest cabin we have stayed at . It wasn't as secluded as we thought but it was still nice and quiet and had plenty of woods to enjoy. There could have been a few more plates,coffee cups and the shower could have sprayed better but it wasn’t bad. We usually don’t go this early in the year but decided to go and I’m glad we went here we have never had tv when we’ve been there but since it was pretty cold out one of the days we were there it was nice to stay in watch tv and play our card games. I look forward to coming back and staying at one of your cabins again. The Gould’s

Old Hickory Cabin

My daughter and I stayed in Old Hickory at the end of March. The cabin decor was beautiful and every room was clean. This is the first time I've stayed in a cabin with satellite TV and what a blessing it was. Two of the days we were there, the weather was cold and rainy. Although we brought a satellite radio, it was great to have the ability to watch some TV and sit in front of a fire. My only negative comment, would be reference the cooking utensils and silverware. I would have liked to have seen a little more of both, but we worked with what we had and enjoyed our three days at Cook Forest. I definitely recommend Top Hill Cabins and will revisits the facility in the future. Thanks for the great service and memories!!!

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Old Hickory despite the weather. A nice warm fire always brightens a day! We strive to keep a sufficient supply of utensils in our cabins. Thank you for bringing it to our attention, as we will make sure to check all cabins. We do work to make our guests stay enjoyable.
Thanks for choosing us! Hopefully we will see you again soon.

The cabin was clean and there was plenty of wood for the fireplace. The furniture was very nice and the TV reception was good. The Mr. Coffee was broken and replaced with a Keurig so we had to go out and buy K-cups and we bought some kindling while we were out. I slept very well but a couple of the mattresses could be updated. Hidden Oaks cabin is in a fairly secluded, very beautiful spot among the pine forest. The porch on the back has a nice view of the forest behind it. We had a great weekend!

We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at our cabins. We have new mattresses on order as we listen to customer feed back and follow a replacement schedule. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. As far as the coffee maker, if we had realized the hardship of the Keurig, we would have supplied you with a regular coffee pot. We encourage our guests to stop by the office, so we can make your stay more relaxing.

This place was just amazing. The sugar pine cabin is adorable. The people were great. Can't wait to come back in summer

We are pleased that you enjoyed our Sugar Pine Cabin, which has recently been renovated. We were glad we could accommodate your extra day. During the summer you will be able to enjoy other additional activities the Forest offers.
Look forward to your stay in the summer, as we stay open year round.

Always a great stay!

I have been lucky enough to stay here many times. Different seasons and in different cabins. The area is beautiful and the stay is relaxing! All the updates and cabin additions make each stay different and increasingly better. Thanks Lois, Larry and Patty.

Thank you for staying with us frequently. You are correct, the forest changes with the season, each one unique. We are pleased that you have tried several of our cabins as they are as unique as the forest that surrounds them. It is also nice that you have been able to see all the renovations Larry and Lois have made over the years.
We look forward to your next stay. Your kind words are appreciated!

Loved the cabin remodel!

This was our third time staying at Top Hill Cabins. We stayed in Douglas Fir in 2014 and Sugar Pine in 2016. We chose Sugar Pine again for this year's stay. We saw on the website that the cabin had been remodeled since we were last there but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The pictures do not do justice to how beautiful the new cabin is! At first when I opened the door and saw the bed right there I was a little concerned but then as I went fully in to the cabin I realized that the new design made a lot of sense. We enjoyed going to sleep at night with the soft glow of the dying campfire in the fireplace. The wood-burning fireplace is an excellent addition as well as the new, much larger bathroom. The cabin was nice and cozy for the two of us and our dog. Being pet-friendly is one of the major draws for us. Our one complaint we have is that the wood that is supplied is not seasoned and does not burn well. We had the same experience with the wood in 2014. We had to go out and purchase wood but fortunately there are many places in the area to do this. The only thing that would make this cabin absolutely perfect is if it were moved to the back of the property and surrounded by at least a few trees. If you need a cabin for 2 people, I definitely recommend Sugar Pine!

Hey Michelle: Your review was spot on! Thank you for your apprecition of the cabin. We also wish it sat more in the woods. We have been planting trees around it to help with the seclusion but I guess that will take a while to fill in. Thanks again!

Beautiful cabin for two

Very clean, beautiful cabin for two. It was very cold when we stayed there, so the cabin was cold, the floor was especially cold. The jacuzzi tub was wonderful and the bed was very comfortable. We would give it a 4 out of 5, only because the cold floor. Next time we will come in warmer weather. We would stay there again, but probably in one of the bigger cabins so we could bring our kids. Thank you for getting us in at the last minute.

We are glad you spent your anniversary in the forest. Every cabin has a thermostat for our guests to adjust to their liking. In addition, Sugar Pine has a wonderful fireplace and we supply the wood. Our cabins will accommodate up to 15 guests. We would love for you to stay again, as we are open during all seasons!
Thank you for staying with us!

great stay

Stayed at Hidden Oaks for the weekend with another couple.. This is the best cabin we have ever rented and we have rented cabins all over the country. Clean comfortable well equipped. I wish we could have met the owners but time did not permit. We will be back!!!!!!

What kind words. We strive to make our guests stay enjoyable. We do stay open year round and look forward to meeting you also.

10th Anniversary with Cook Forest Top Hill /Cabins

Omg we felt somewhat deceived when we saw the pictures of the Sugar Pine Cabin that was available on line. These pics made the cabin look as though it had a separate bedroom from the other areas while it was really a one room studio. Next, the cable had no signal for satellite for the entire stay and weather conditions were not that bad, however we did watch our DVDs several times. The Jacuzzi was a bathtub with yellow water. I do want to say that Patty was very pleasant when she greeted us and helped with all our needs. My sympathy goes to Lois and her family. All of the restaurants on the property were closed for the season. We were never given this honest information. So we spent most of our anniversary in bed with our dog, lol. I doubt we will reserve again but it was great to get away

Hello Renee: Thank you for your review. We do recommend early communications with our office when you have issues in the cabins - TV and Water. The TV is satellite and could have easily been fixed by the maintenance man. The same is true of the water system which is a well and a water conditioner. We cannot read your mind. The same goes for when you arrived and discovered the cabin was not as desired. We could have easily have moved you to a different cabin. Yes, Sugar Pine Cottage has been remodeled to be a suite.
As far as restaurants, Trail's End is open on weekends in the winter, it is next to our property. Country Inn, 3 miles from the cabin, is open most days of the week. Again, it would have helped you find an OPEN restaurant if you had talked to the manager in the office.
Lastly, let us discuss you as a guest. We do not usually have guests drive all through our lawns, even in the Winter. You and your husband drove over the septic system --- Yes, the cabins are in the country and there are no city sewage services ----. You could quite easily have damaged that system and we will not know until spring. You did cause lawn damage when your car was stuck making huge ruts in the lawn. We had decided not to charge you for these damages but maybe we were wrong.

Top Hill Cabins

We had a lovely stay at the cabin. I loved the room in kitchen- living room area. We were visiting from Massachusetts to see my 1 year old grandson. He had a great time walking around the open concept. We also loved the fireplace! Awesome time and will do again!!!

Thank you so much! We are glad you enjoyed the cabin and the area. Cook Forest is truly a gem. We hope to see you again when you are visiting grandchildren.

Top hill cabins

We stayed in Hidden Oaks over New Year’s Eve weekend. The cabin was beautiful with a very well supplied kitchen. There was a supply of firewood that lasted all weekend and made the cabin very cozy. Surprisingly there was dish tv, it was very frigid so having some movie channels was a plus. Lois and Larry are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back and highly recommend it. I’m sure the other cabins are just as nice.

Thanks for staying with us. Your memories of bringing in the New Year at Hidden Oaks will stay with you a long time.
Thank you for the great review.

by Diane on

Hidden Oaks was a great place to stay. Clean, roomy, nicely decorated--all you have to bring is towels! The cabin is perfect for a larger group. Easy accommodates 5+people

Glad you liked Hidden Oaks as it is one of our more popular cabins with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
Thanks for the review.

Top Hill Cabins

We stayed at Hemlock Haven Cabin. Very open and bright. Kitchen was nicely stocked. Satellite TV was nice for the kids. Had a wonderful time on a beautiful piece of property and the owners were so sweet. Definitely intend to rent this cabin again.

How nice. Thanks so much for the review.

Sugar Pine Cabin

Spent two nights this week. Charming cabin, spotless,
And cozy in the frigid weather. We will be back. Pleasant surprise. Have been visiting Cook Forest for over thirty years. Regrets we didn’t get to meet the proprietors.

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully next time we will get to meet you.
Thank you for the great review!

Sugar Pine was sweet!

We stayed at the Sugar Pine cabin just before Thanksgiving and were so impressed with the cleanliness and the thought and care put into making the cabin equipped with everything that could be needed. The decor was charming and we immediately felt at home. I am recommending Top Hill to my friends and we will be back for sure!

Thank you for the lovely review. Hope to see you in the future as well.

Couldn't have been nicer!

We stayed at the Sugar Pine Cabin and could not have been more pleased! It was our first visit there and will not be our last. The cabin was clean and nicely decorated. The accomodations were excellent. We would recommend staying at Top Hill Cabins with no hesitation!

Bates Family: We are so very happy that you enjoyed your stay in Sugar Pine Cottage. The cabin has been very well received since Larry remodeled it. Thank you again!

Great cabins

We recently stayed at Hidden Oaks and had a great time. It was very clean and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. We cooked outside over the fire using some of the firewood that Larry provides. My family had a good time, and before we left we reserved the cabin for the same dates next year.

Thank you for your stay in Hidden Oaks Cabin. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and that you re-booked the cabin for next year!!! Lois and Larry
