Weekend getaway
The Dodge Cabin was a perfect accommodation for our guys trip. It was easy to get to for everyone (short drive) and secluded enough to allow us to relax. It was great to be away from the ambient light of the city and clearly see the stars. We'll be back.

Our stay
We really enjoy the roundhouse. We live on 12 1/2 acres in Williamsburg,Oh.and the family love going there. We are very sorry to hear that you are selling it. Wish there was a way for you to keep it and continue renting it out. Thanking you Patty it’s a great place to stay. We will miss going to the Roundhouse.

Beautiful cabin
Enjoyed our 3 night stay at the cabin. It was about 95 degrees when we arrived so we were grateful it had AC! Loved the privacy and seclusion of this place. Cabin was stocked with everything we could possibly need. We loved the peaceful surroundings and getting away from it all.

Love Cave Hill Cabins!
This cabin is lovely, and very relaxing to stay in. Everything you need to spend time in nature :). All of the comforts and access of home (internet, TV and DVD player, comfortable beds and furnishings, and a complete kitchen which fulfills my need to cook a lot of great meals), and still very out-in-the-country and away from suburbia. Very dog-friendly - if your dogs are obedient enough to take off-leash, this is the place to do it. A pond is nearby, which my dogs LOVE to swim in (and there is a hose at the cabin to get the mud off them when you're done). There are a few short, good walks to take in the immediate vicinity, and the whole of Adams County to explore if you want to venture further. We have come here many times (first to the now-sold Log Cabin, and more recently to the Dodge Cabin) and find it to be one of the most relaxing places we have been to. We intend to be regular visitors here going forward :)

Very enjoyable stay
We spent a very quiet and relaxing honeymoon week at the Dodge Cabin. Patty was very helpful and responding quickly to one very minor need we had. The cabin was comfortable, and the air conditioning very appreciated when the weather turned warm. We enjoyed preparing meals in the kitchen, the huge dining room table and the deck was perfect for relaxing at at the end of each day. We are early risers and each day enjoyed the sunrise on the deck, and listening to the woods come alive. We enjoyed many of the local parks for hiking and photography, and the trail through the Cave Hill property was enjoyable as well. Planning a return trip next year for our anniversary

Peaceful and Serene
We had an amazing time celebrating my husband's birthday. The cabin was so peaceful and serene. We loved having the pond behind us. The amenities available were a nice surprise. You have thought of everything. We will definitely be coming back! Thank you!!

Quick Getaway
Dodge Cabin was a cozy and quaint cabin with a beautiful private little lake. Our dogs loved running freely in the field out front - something they don't get at home! Everything you need for a relaxing and peaceful getaway. Would like to come back in the warmer months for a long weekend. Also explored the cave - creepy fun!

Family Weekend at Cave Hill
Our family of six fit perfectly in this quaint, pristine cabin. We were thrilled to find the place in such great order! They allowed us to bring our furry family as well which made this a perfect stay! Stepping inside we immediately felt like we were home. The wood and peg floors added to the charm and the large table was a great place for us to enjoy dinners, and also hosted our game night. The Walmart was not far away, which was great when we discovered we had forgotten a crucial ingredient for one of our meals. They do have a selection of DVDs that suited our family, but we never found time to watch anything. The cave is amazing. You should know that at some points, you will be crawling, which is where I turned back (smile) but I was thrilled to see all my boys and husband come back out head to toe in mud (as promised)! They loved it! There are a few paths you can also walk in the woods, and my boys like to fish, which they could have, but our stay was too short. However, we did walk around the pond. With two of my boys out of the house and in college, it is so nice to have everyone together for a weekend. They all want to come back next year! Music to a mother's heart! Thank you for providing this place for a quiet get away!

very pleasant stay
We very much enjoyed our relaxing stay at the Dodge Cabin. Our dogs loved romping in the fields and taking hikes through the woods. Daffodils were a bit later this year but many of them were blooming. Dodge Cabin is very well appointed, grilled dinners and kept a fire going in the fireplace every evening. Perfect much needed down time.

No detail overlooked. Loved the privacy and surroundings. Not sure who enjoyed the Round House more; the people or the dogs. Thank you for being pet friendly; we'll all be back!

We had a lovely time
We loved the extra touches. When we got there the baby gate was already up for our 2 year old, and there was a playpen and high chair there that we didn't even request. We were pleasantly surprised about the firewood Chris, Iris, and their son delivered and even carried into the cabin for us when our supply started getting low. The pillows on the beds are wonderful, we are going to find some for our own home. We even had a deer outside our kitchen window on Thanksgiving morning. All the personal touches made this a wonderful stay.

New Go-to Place when Visiting OH
Our son got married to a local OH girl so our whole family stayed at the round house. We loved it from the moment we walked in the door! All the amenities of a hotel but better! Comfy, secluded, warm and inviting. Will definitely stay again!

Wonderful Getaway
Wow! What a wonderful two days. The Round House is even better than it appears in the pictures. I have never been to a "cabin" that has every convenience and where the kitchen has everything you will ever need to prepare a meal. Plenty of NICE cookware, utensils, baking dishes, etc. Hair Dryers in every bathroom, great beds and bedding, hiking trails, easy access to Amish stores. Make sure you take advantage of the 10.00 per person breakfast down the road at Margaret's; great food and hospitality. Breakfast served on Royal Doulton China and great hiking around the back of her property. We ate dinner at nearby Murphin Ridge Inn. We enjoyed the Brown County Fair before checking in and ate at the Ice Cream Parlor in Ripley. However, the highlight of our trip were the peaceful and quiet accommodations. Good job, Patty and crew. Enjoyed looking at the stars in the field by the barn. We spent two hours in the dark there. Beautiful! Grounds were cut for easy access to all cabins, barn and fire pit.

Great Get Away!!
We really enjoyed our stay at the dodge cabin. The cabin was very well kept and clean. It is well stocked with everything you would need! The fridge,stove,tv exc is just an added bonus. My family enjoyed the trails and fishing at the pond. The scenery is just so breath taking and beautiful. We loved it!! We plan to come back soon!

What a lovely getaway
We had a wonderful stay in the Log Cabin at Cave Hill. The Cabin was a wonderful blend of modern amenities mixed with history all within a quiet, peaceful setting. We played family games, went on hikes and explored much of Adams County. I highly recommend this spot for a family or romantic get away!

Great place to stay
I always enjoy staying at one of the cabins at Cave Hill when I am out in Adams county. They put a lot of effort into trying to accommodate the needs of their guests. Each cabin has its' own character and particular charm.

Wonderful getaway!
My family of 5 and our dog absolutely loved our stay. We had a wonderful time exploring and seeing all the wildlife and visiting all the area had to see. We could not have asked for anything more. Everything we could need was perfectly in place. Breakfast with Margaret was delightful as well! Thanks for everything to Patti.

Log Cabin
Awesome cabin! Very clean and comfortable. The open field around the house was perfect for our two dogs! It was fun being able to make a fire in the outdoor pit and eat Smores. Loved being in the woods and the one lane drive made a nice place to walk with the dogs to relax. Close enough to Newport and Cincinnati to enjoy attractions if you want to get out. It was a perfect week for us.

We loved staying in this cabin. Despite bad weather and not doing any of the hiking we planned on doing, we both think the weekend was one of the best of our lives. The property feels isolated, but it's only an hour from the city. You could go days without seeing another person, though, if you wanted to. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and cooking things. I have food allergies, so I've not tried any of the restaurants in the area. I LOVE that I can prepare my own food here. That sounds like a stupid reason to like a place, but if dining out makes you sick, it's a big deal. We spent most of our time outside, either sitting on the porch or walking around the property. The cabin itself is very cozy. The couch is comfortable. The bed is huge and comfortable. There's a tv, but we didn't even turn it on. The landscape is very pretty. There's a little trail in the woods and there are big fields you can run in. We brought our dogs. The old man dog just took a few leisurely walks and sat around on the porch. I spent about half of each day running in the wet grass with my young dog. I was soaked for the entire first day, which should've been miserable, but it was just more fun than I've had for 30 years. Really. My grandparents lived about an hour or so from here, in the country, and it really brought back the feelings I had when I was running wild in the woods behind their house. Only it was better, because there was no one there to tell me to act like a girl. As if. We also visited some Amish shops and antique stores. I wouldn't bother with the giant glazed donuts or fried pies, even though they look good. You're bound to be disappointed, unless baked goods from Kroger give you a thrill. It's still fun to go, though. The countryside is so pretty. We can't wait to go back and are planning another trip in July when my father-in-law is over from Ireland.

Great Stay
My children and I stayed in one of you cabin and it was wonderful! The cabin was beautiful, comfortable, peaceful and relaxing. We roasted hotdogs, mashmellows and explored the woods. It was nice having the beds upstairs to accommodate large families. We will definitely be back again.

A Hidden Gem
The Log Cabin is the perfect place to get away from it all. It's hard to believe that there is such seclusion so close to the city. My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon, and are so looking forward to going back. The cabin was clean, decorated so nice, and everything we needed was right there. Highly recommended this hidden gem to all our family and friends!

Wedding & Honeymoon N-1
We stayed at the Roundhouse Cabin for 2 nights during the first weekend of March. We, long with our 2 children, had a wedding ceremony in the cupola. It was the perfect location for us to commit our lives to one another. We spent the next day hiking around the property and exploring the nature that surrounds the cabin. The quiet serenity of this remote getaway was exactly what we were looking for. At the same time, the cabin had all of the comforts of a modern home, including wifi. We will definitely return many times in our futures.

Beautiful Cabin
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon during a very cold winter. It was surprisingly easy to find and only an hour from home. Checking in and staying at the cabin was entirely hassle-free and the owners have a very hands-off approach which worked surprisingly well. It was expensive to stay at the Round House but I felt it was worth every penny. The place was beautiful, the surrounding area was beautiful, and the cabin had all the amenities we could have asked for in a country get-away. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Our family retreat.
Our stay at the log cabin was outstanding. I have pictured a place like this in my mind for a long time. It was perfect. The snow was a bonus. Nothing like a cabin in the woods with snow and the temp in single digits snd a roaring fire. The time alone with just my family could not have been better. Great place!

Fantastic stay
This cabin is absolutely a dream. We loved every minute. George and Patty have thought of everything. Try to arrive during the day as the drive back is beautiful but pretty remote. The cabin is the perfect mix of old and new. We loved cooking all our meals and relaxing in front of the fire. We stayed a few nights and could have easily stayed an entire week. Hope to return some day!

Cave Hill Cabins
We stayed in the Dodge Cabin for an anniversary getaway. It was a very clean and comfortable cabin with a great deck. We enjoyed hiking, checking out the cave and fishing a little. The close-by Amish area was interesting also. We would definitely stay there again some day.

Great Find! A++++++ Recommended!!
My husband and I spent the weekend at Dodge Cabin with our dog. We had the best time, and we were very comfortable. The cabin has everything you could possibly need, unlike many cabins we have stayed in before. It is easy to find, but still very secluded. Our dog was in heaven running through the large open grassy areas. We will most certainly be back, and hope to stay longer next time.

Review of cabin
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Cave Hill Cabin. The history of the cabin was fascinating, and we enjoyed reading about it in more detail through the literature we found on the table. The cabin was secluded and peaceful, and had everything we needed for much needed relaxation. We enjoyed eating our meals on the large, comfortable porch, and even got to have a cozy supper outside while a thunderstorm was happening! We took a hike on the property and followed a trail through the woods. We even explored the cave, and were able to stop and talk with George on our way back to the cabin, as he was cutting grass where we were walking by. We will most definitely be recommending this cabin to friends and family, and are already planning a return trip with our girls!

Lovely visit
We spent two days here enjoying the peace and tranquility. There were two trails near by to walk-one to a small pond and one to a small cave. Nearby a neighbor had an Art studio and a lovely prairie with lots of wild flowers and butterflies. We got some beautiful photographic memories. The cabin had everything you could possibly need except for your food. Plenty of extras in case you forgot something. George and Patty are just terrific people with the foresight to know just what you need for a relaxing stay.

Lovely night away
A friend and I wanted to run away from home for the night and Round House proved to be the perfect escape. The cabin is very nicely appointed - kitchen equipped, beds comfortable and the setting (deep in the woods) so relaxing. The cupola was the ideal spot to watch the full moon rise and we agreed that viewing the Perseids from the fire pit would have been spectacular. Unfortunately, we were a few days late for that. The Round House would be a great spot for a two couple get away.

Just What We Needed Too
. . . A week in the Log Cabin at Cave Hill Cabins.. The location (at the end of the lane, looking across the meadow to the old barn) was perfect. And while we had drenching rains several times in the week, it mattered not. The Carrs have anticipated not only all our needs, but our possible desires as well -- cards, interesting books (I took pictures of several titles since I couldn't read them all in one week), jigsaw puzzles, satellite TV so we wouldn't miss any Olympics. They have managed to bring a/c, central heat, garbage disposal, microwave, dishwasher, etc. to a pre-Civil War cabin in a complimentary way that does not compromise the original structure in the least. And sleeping in the king size bed on the second level brought those rainstorms right overhead -- lovely sound to fall asleep to. We enjoyed walks through up the lane, down to the pond, over to the Dodge Cabin and the Roundhouse, stargazing and sitting on the porch in the early morning with our coffee. We will definitely return before the end of the year. After all, who doesn't want to sit in front of a fire on a nippy late fall evening? Thank you Patty & George for creating such a serene environment in which to unwind.
