Our kids acted bored to tears at times although the word "bored" was outlawed on day #2. However when asked on our last night if they were ready to go home both replied "no". A 9 year old girl and a 5 year old boy don't always agree but moving here permanently seemed like a good idea to them. We had the tv on about an hour on the first night but the rest of the time we spent reading, playing, cooking, resting and exploring. Bedtimes were late and getting up came early. It seemed nobody wanted to miss minute of our time here.
Favorite moments:
*Kids sitting under a cluster of trees across the lane on a blanket talking about who knows what.
*Reading on the front porch as the sun set every evening.
*Late nights in the hot tub after the kids finally went to sleep.
*The deer visits about 8pm each evening.

Thanks for a great place to get away and do all the things we love to do as a family.

For 3 of us it was our 2nd time in this same cabin. We were here in January with our husbands. We liked it so well we girls decided it would be a great place for our annual ya-ya week-end. We have not been disappointed even though we were rained in for a bit. We went to the barn this time, saw all the animals. We had a wonderful time and hope to come back.

This is an amazing place. This was a getaway trip to celebrate our engagement and to get away from our hectic daily lives. We did not touch our blackberry, cell phones, internet, nor did we watch T.V. This was an important time to reflect on life, how our paths crossed and where we go together as a couple. We spent several hours reading this visitors journal and the stories that have been told.

Life is short, celebrate today what you have. Tell those close to you that you love them as your do not know what tomorrow brings.

We look forward to our next visit.

This is our third time in a row at Cabin on the Hill. We enjoy having a vacation that is easy going and fun for us all. Shelly loved the farm as you can tell. She was up at the farm just about as much as in the cabin. We enjoy taking a vacation where we can bring our family dog.

Thanks so much and see you in 2010!

We absolutely loved the view, animals and wonderful ammenities here at Cabin on the Hill. We also loved that this cabin was well equipped with everything you need for everyday life & tasks. This is a beautiful place to away and clear your head, sit down and read a good book or just place games with family. The animals are so very welcoming and nice. I will highly recommend this place.

Thanks so much.

This is our third vacation here. We love it because we can leave the city behind and relax but we don't have to rough it toooo much. It's nice to come home to a jacuzzi and satellite TV after a long hike. Love the barn and animals especilly the cats and dogs.

The Akbash trail is a great way to begin or end your day. Just loved the creek and the delicious dragon flies.

See you next year.

This is the nicest place I've ever stayed (and we've been to Disney)

We had another wonderful labor day weekend. We have all been coming here every labor day since you built your first cabin.
