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.

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.

Old Hickory

We stayed at Old Hickory cabin over New Years Eve weekend, it was so nice. Very clean well maintained cabin in the woods. Very well supplied kitchen. Initial supply of firewood included for fireplace. We will definitely be back again. Lois and Larry were very friendly and helpful and their website is so easy to navigate.

We are so happy that you rang in the new year with us and to have you as a customer.
Thank you 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

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
