The Cabin at the Preserve

The Cabin at the Preserve
Gotta hand it to you, Gary & Karen, we’ve spent several weekends in some nice cabins here at Hocking Hills, met owners from very business like to friendly. But it seems you guys have thought of everything. It’s as if you live here and let us stay in your home for the night. We called just the day before and could get away only for the night on our Anniversary. We were so pleased just to find a place, but ended up in the best equipped cabin we’ve been in. Thanks Gary & Karen for your wonderful hospitality and the Anniversary card, it was such a nice and thoughtful touch.

May God Bless You!

Hocking Hills is beautiful and the Preserve made our trip even more memorable! Our families met here from Baltimore and Cincinnati, and thoroughly enjoyed the Canopy Tour, hiking, and relaxing at the cabin. We especially appreciated all the special touches and amenities you have here -- would like to return in the fall sometime. We have visited many cabins around the USA and this is definitely one of our favorites!!

Thank you,

We had a wonderful time while staying at your cabin! We absolutely love coming to Hocking Hills as it is, but having such a gorgeous place to stay just adds to it. We love all of the little additions that you have made around the cabin, and look forward to many more visits. Keep up the excellent job and we wish you much continued success with your cabin business.

Best Wishes,
Holly, Bill, Stephanie & Stacy – Collins, OH
P.S. The deer are everywhere!

Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at your beautiful cabin. It is very lovely and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the porch and game room. Last night around the fire ring we enjoyed the eveing sounds and a clear sky to view the stars. Our children had a blast and said they want to move here! This makes for great family and friends memories. We hope to see you at Diner d'Argento some day to return the favor of such great hospitality!

What a way to bring in the New Year!! We’ve been to the Hocking Hills area several times in the past, but from our first phone conversations, to meeting you, and finally spending these past few days in your beautiful cabin, this trip was special. We spent the week with very good friends from Connecticut in what is becoming something of an annual New Years get together. Afternoon hikes, evenings playing games, bonfires, quiet time reading, and time just spent “catching up” with each other made this years get together very, very special. Airplane Rock proved elusive, but we found it in the end. Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality, this awesome cabin, and please accept our sincerest hopes and prayers in all your future endeavors.

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay on such short notice. We came down for the night without reservations to stay anywhere and needless to say we called about 15 places that were booked when we reached Gary saying he had gotten his buck and now the cabin was available. The cabin was absolutely beautiful with every amenity imaginable. We loved the game room! We will definitely be back with pre-arranged reservations next time!

Thanks again,
Michael & Stephanie – Toledo, OH

We had a wonderfully good weekend. Weather was beautiful and trees got awesome with the color. The cabin is beautiful. Thank you, Karen, for all the little “extras”. Belle (our mule) and Rock (our horse) like their accommodations too. They did their best to “decorate” the stalls, etc. – hope we got most of it out! It will make the grass grow! The riding was good. Hope to see you next year.

God bless you,
Sandy & Gerald – Mt. Vernon, OH

Thank you so much for creating this paradise in the middle of Hocking Hills where we celebrated our 25th Anniversary, and the beginning of our way to the 50th!! We enjoyed so much walking on the trails, the views from the cabin, the pool table and the Jacuzzi! We’ll pass the word around telling our friends how beautiful, neat and amazing the cabin is, and I hope we’ll come back soon to keep enjoying the place. Thanks so much for the card and God Bless you. Have a wonderful Holiday Season and the Best for 2009.

Peace & Love,

Thanksgiving Day at your cabin was a real treat and will surely be memorable especially for the kids -- such a beautiful, serene setting, and a cabin that feels like home. We’ve always been “hotel people”, and because of this experience we will add Creek’s Crossing Cabin! We packed so much into our short stay here that it felt like a vacation. The game table was a huge hit with the girls, and the pool table with Bob and me. Finally a Thanksgiving that wasn’t spent with eyes glued to the football games – but on each other as a family!

Thanks for the memory,

The Cabin at Elkin's Pass

The Cabin Elkin's Pass
This cabin is gorgeous & leaves nothing to be desired. The night was sooo quiet, and the morning revealed all kinds of colorful moths clinging to the windows & doors. Saturday was a perfect day to explore the Hocking Hills! First stop was Old Man's Cave; next up was Cedar Falls; from there we hiked to Ash Cave. We also took a side trip to Tar Hollow State Park -- right down the road from the cabin. This is a fun family spot (not crowded at all) with lots to do, and really pretty to boot. We took Aussie (our dog) for a hike around the property -- what a place! (she loves this place). We headed off to Circleville -- very cute downtown. Found a perfect little bowling alley, and played some 10-pin -- haven't done that in years! And it was only $12.00 for the 3 of us -- crazy!! Sunday we cleaned up & said our goodbyes to this magical get-away. And of course played a farewell game of darts! Thanks for sharing your home with our family. We have created many new memories which will be treasured forever.

Awesome – Fabulous – Cool!! These were the words our kids used to describe their weekend getaway. The cabin was beautiful, perfect for our family getaway. The trails were serene and challenging – so much fun! We will definitely be back and will probably bring friends… you can’t keep a place like this to yourself. Thanks so much for your wonderful hospitality.

Our stay at Elkins Pass was as expected; secluded and lovely. Having stayed with Creek's Crossing before, most would be hard pressed to find such hospitality from a caring host. Thanks guys for offering up your unique cabin with all of its history and beauty for us to share our special monents in. Wonderfully cool weather to begin with, and a rain on the metal roof the last eveing, with the sun peeking through & the mist falling from the leaves in the moring (PERFECT). A trip to remember, in a great place, around people that care -- what more could we have asked for.

May God always bless you,

Where are we? from the moment the roads started climbing and winding, we knew "our cabin" was going to be remote and secluded; a perfect nature setting for our two family "camping" trip. We laughed all the way up the drive. The cabin is gorgeous. The dads loved the porch, the moms loved the cozy living room and hiking trails, the kids loved exploring all around. Two nights of rain were hardly an inconvenience with the big porch and game room. The thrid night was clear... a campfire, stars, tired children. Our days were fun: paddle boating, fishing, the beach and skipping rocks at Tar Hollow; hiking, picnicing, ATVing the Hocking Hills State Park area. You've created a haven here, a place our family won't ever forget. Thanks for the warm welcome to your beautiful log cabin. We hope to come back soon. Thanks especially for allowing our dogs.

We arrived Saturday afternoon to this beautiful cabin, and to have a cookout on the front porch. We came down for one night so we could take the kids to see "Tecumseh" in Chillicothe. It was a nice drive & very close -- got there in less than 20 minutes. It was a great outdoor drama! My children enjoyed the Indians and horses the most. My husband & I jumped a few times during the battles while the children laughed at us. We took pictures afterwards with the actors (including Jym Ganahl - Channel 4) -- very cool! We had a very nice stay, and definitely will be back! Love the cabin - you thought of everything!

How beautiful! Brian and I have needed this kind of secluded escape since the day we left Florida (our Honeymoon!) The boys (Zion & Gizmo) our dogs are settling in nicely – I can hear them stopping and sniffing around outside! They LOVE IT out here without their leashes! We had so much fun! Thanks again for letting us come out here; it was much needed! We will be returning soon!

What a beautiful, tranquil setting! We especially enjoyed sitting in the balcony off the left. Joyce saw a fox come down the path from that vantage point early one morning. Can’t believe this was our first visit to Hocking Hills with all the years we’ve lived in Ohio. Cedar Falls was probably our favorite spot. We enjoyed hiking the trails – except the day we miscalculated the distance and came back to the cabin exhausted! Thanks for allowing our family to share your place!

Breathtaking! We all came down from Cleveland for Ralph’s 50th BDay to Zipline. We arrived and it was WOW, unbelievable! What a place! Good job. Thanks for the memory. It will stay with us for a long time.

What a beautiful cabin and property to catch a breath of fresh air! We had all that we needed here and more. The kids played games and played outside in the snow -- they slid down the drive on the ice. Fun!! We all enjoyed each other, especially walking in on foot with all our crap because the driveway was too icy to drive up! Thank you for the great weekend!

What an awesome place! Very secluded - quiet - just what we needed. Game night was a blast! Good yummy food - great TV! We will make this a reocurring event. Love it!! Thank you for letting us in on your special place.

This cabin is AWESOME!! Our hunting group (8 of them) had a total blast! The hunting land was great, and the cabin is in a beautiful setting. We were very comfortable here, and meeting you both made us feel that much more comfortable. We appreciate the time you took to show us the property and some great places to hunt. We got 6 deer, and saw some great bucks. This is definitely the best rental cabin we've ever stayed in, and will definitely be back. All we can say is "AWESOME".
