We will return again - this is a very nice place to stay.  Enjoyed every moment of our mini-vacation.  I am so glad that my aunt and uncle recommended this place to try.  This will be a yearly place to visit from now on. 

Thanks again!

This is our 5th visit to Cabin on the Hill.  Our previous stays were at the Premier Cabin 3 times with friends and once with our five daughters.  This was our first stay @ Cabin `1.  It was perfect for the two of us.  We loved being greeted by Lester when we arrived.  We figured out that we have pics of Lester with our girls from 6 years ago. 

It was perfect and relaxing, just what we needed.  We promised the girls we would bring them next stay.  They love everything here and so do we.  We'll miss Lester!!  He truly loves people and his home. 

Thank you Jill and Danny for providing us the perfect getaway!!

I can't thank you all enough for sharing this magical place.  I only wish I never had to leave.  Everything is beautiful - the cabin, the property, the drive here.... Your animals are also wonderful and such a delight. Helped ease the pain of missing our cats back home.  Made some great memories out here and can't wait to come back.  I have so many beautiful photos of this place, I can't wait to show my family. 

Thanks again and Happy Spring!

It's always fun talking with Danny & Jill.  Also, if you forgot something from home, I'm sure Jill has thought of it.  Just look around, it's probably in the cabin - she has an eye for detail.  I appreciate the cleanliness and personal care of this place.  I love supporting this kind of business, mainly because they care so much and take pride in their work.  We also discovered a trail on the grounds.  We hiked it last night and one of the cats went with us and followed us all the way through and sometimes led the way.  It was the cutest thing.  My daughter Olivia knows every cat by name and remembers them year to year.  She loves it here.  She is a misplaced farm girl.  We don't live on a farm but she could in a heart beat.  I love this cabin and the fireplace and the hospitality.  We had a great and relaxing visit.

Thank you Jill & Danny, see you next year!

This is a return visit for us.  We enjoy the quiet and low population of people!  I grew up here on a farm by Grassy Lake.  So much better than the thumps, slams and talking you experience at a busy hotel.

Jill & Danny, it is apparent how much care and effort you put into the cabins and farm.  Just wantyou to know how much it is appreciated!

Thank you:

We have been coming to Cabin on the Hill for a number of years.  This is such a special retreat place for us.  We look forward to our visits.  It's so great to relax and unwind.  We love visiting the animals at the barn and enjoy our visits with Jill & Dan.  We take our hikes on the Akbash Trail and also hiking other places like Giant City Park.  It is fun to see things in the area but we enjoy time at the cabin the most.  it was fun to relax in the hot tub and 3 out of 4 nights to enjoy a campfire.  We had lost of rain but it was all one night and didn't interfere with any of our plans.  We can't wait to come back again next year.

My husband and I have stayed in Cabin 2 a couple of times in the past and I wanted mom to experience the unique atmosphere. 

It is neat to see the domestic animals and wildlife, to hear their voices in nature.  Gives me a sense of peace and serenity.

We enjoyed watching the deer romp and play in the pasture, sharing our front yard with the guineas and my lap with Lester while swinging and rocking on the front porch.

I plan to bring my grandson soon.  Thanks for a wonderful memory!

We heard from a friend about Cabin on the Hill and we're glad we came!  It's a nice get-away from our busy schedule.  We have two girls who are always in sports year round and it was nice to not have to worry about games and practices.  We will be coming back but will bring our girls the next time.  They would love it here!  Thanks for such a beautiful cabin and very peaceful and clean.

We would recommend this place to everyone.  We loved it!  We will probably be back.  Kids were happy there was wifi.  We would will probably rent the bigger cabin next time if we bring kids again.  No complaints, everything was perfect.

This place is magical.  We didn't know you put a Christmas tree up in your cabins and it was beautiful.  What a wonderful surprise! We enjoyed sitting by the fire with just the tree lit and it was so relaxing and romantic.  The cabin had everything we needed and was so clean.  It's obvious you guys work really hard and care about your guests.  We will definitely be coming back and will tell all of our friends about your place.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

What an amazing property.  We had a great time walking around and enjoying all the animals.  We used the fire pit the entire weekend.  Perfect for hot dog.  We enjoyed the hot tub and grill also.  We walked the Akbash Trail and it was the perfect scenery for my BF to pop the question.  I will always remember our wonderful trip and our engagement.  We will be back!!

Too hot for walking your trail but maybe we can come back next year in the fall.  A couple of nights we came back to our cabin and were greeted with quite a few deer, which we loved.  We enjoyed sitting on the front porch watching the humming birds and dreaming of building our own log cabin.  Jill, you do a great job keeping your cabins clean and the hot tub inviting.  We have stayed at a couple of other cabins over the past four months and yours is by far the nicest.

Thank you!!

Jill and Danny:  Had a wonderful time!  As soon as we pulled up I was in awe!  Once we got inside and I saw it all I cried.  I was so taken by the inside decor but mostly the time and little bit of yourself you put here!  You have outdone yourself in making it a memorable place.  The privacy was wonderful.  A This was our first time here and we will return.  It was very relaxing.  We felt pampered.  You are truly
blessed to be able to do this for other people.  I'd love to see it in the fall which is on our list.  Thanks again for all you did and for spectacular accommodations.

Had a wonderful stay!  Hosts did a wonderful job with all amenities.  All points covered.  Comfortable accommodations and everything we needed was here.  The perfect setting to relax, unwind and enjoy!  Enjoyed screened in porch and hot tub each evening and front porch every morning with coffee.  Enjoyed every minute!!!

We loved the setting of country living.  We sat on the porch and listened to the sounds of nature.  Buzzing hummingbirds were there to greet us immediately.  We were in love with our cabin as soon as we entered.  So cute!!!  It was like the owners had thought of everything to make you feel at home.  The beautiful deer came so close to us in the front yard and we were able to get a few pictures, although they were quite skittish.  Relaxing in the evening by the fire pit with some music and drinks and ending our nights with a soak in the hot tub.  We will definitely be returning next year.  Thank you so much for this wonderful experience.

The decor of this cabin is so warm and inviting.  It makes it feel like home as soon as you walk in.  Planning on attempting to come back in the winter time.  Different season with a different setting.

Thank you for a beautiful place to stay.  The beauty surrounding us made it easy to worship God and enjoy each other's company.  Thank you for fresh eggs, movies, board games and more.  Those special touches show your intention in making this place feel like home.

This place is truly amazing and you all do a great job of keeping it up.  This is a remarkable place that we will keep close to our hearts for a long time.  You couldn't ask for a better location with beautiful views.  I hop many more people come and enjoy this great place.  I hope we will be back soon and maybe with some of our friends.  P.S. We love that you recycle to help save this beautiful earth!

I agree with the other comments made by past quests.  The owners obviously care about their cabins.  We have visited some that required us to clean before we felt comfortable to sit down.  This cabin is spotless and has all the perfect touches.  Thank you for a great stay!

It is very obvious the owners take pride in this place.  They thought of everything!  It was so clean when we walked in.  It took less than 15 minutes of being here to recommend it to another couple.  It was a perfect place to relax.  They deliver fresh free range eggs to you.  Those were a first to me.  We will be back.  We both agree we can't imagine staying anywhere else.  Thank you for really making this place special.

This place is fantabulous!!! Before we got here we were trying to figure out what we were going to do all weekend.  Then we walked through the door and fell in love.  We knew then exactly what we were going to do.  Sated in all weekend just enjoying each other and everything the cabin had to offer.  Much needed.  You guys have a great place and the cabin is beautifully decorated.  So inviting and relaxing.

We truly love what you offer.  Everything was here that we needed.  We will be back!!!

We were here in 2008 for a wedding at Blue Sky and stayed in the Luxury Cabin so this was a no brainer choice to celebrate our tenth anniversary here.  We really enjoyed everything about this place and can't wait to come again.  So much love and hard work has gone into these cabins and it shows.  Everything is so clean and well kept and has a wonderful "homey" feel to it.  I was amazed by the amount of deer we saw driving to and from the cabin. We saw at least forty every trip.  I was so surprised to see them out and about even mid-day.  Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us.

This place is beautiful.  We are usually on the go type people so when I say we took an afternoon nap that says we were beyond relaxed!  I am so sad to see our time here has ended but we will return I'm sure.  Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cabin with us!  Next time we come back we would like to meet Jill and Danny.

Bill and I make a habit of getting away for our anniversary to "reconnect".   I found this gem while surfing the internet.  We fell in love the minute we pulled in.  Everything was beautiful and so clean.  We mentioned to Jill on Friday that one of the chairs by the fire pit was broken.  We woke up to two new chairs Saturday morning.  That is "being taken care of"!  Thank you Jill and Dan for such a beautiful and quiet place.  We will be back!!
