Thanksgiving at the Back to Nature Cabin
"We had the best time, and I'm not exaggerating when I tell you it was the best Thanksgiving I've had since I was a kid. I feel nice and relaxed and wonderful. I was so pleased at how well kept and supplied the cabin is. I brought half my kitchen with me, just in case, and didn't need most of it. We had a lovely meal and my whole family is grateful for your hospitality."

10 day stay for very satisfied guest
"Beautiful home and centrally located. We could have spent another week and not run out of things to do. Visit Bloomington, Nashville, Columbus, Story, Beanblossom, and numerous other small towns. And just drive the backroads.....beautiful fall colors. Don't miss Hickory Ridge Tower in Deam Wilderness area. Suzanne and Peter are wonderful hosts. Immediately there if you need them; otherwise, they leave you to enjoy your vacation. Would return tomorrow if we could!"

Great Family Weekend at Back to Nature Cabin
Great Family Weekend at Back to Nature Cabin
Our family spent a wonderful four-day weekend here. It could not have been better. The house was clean and had everything we could want, including dinner settings for 10 people. We loved the fact that every room opens to a deck with a fabulous view and seating. It rained for two days but that didn't matter because many of the decks are covered and there is a game room with pool table, dart board and cd player. The BBQ is also terrific. The road to the house is winding and becomes dirt at the end, which just added to the adventure and the seclusion. It also made for great walks through the woods. We have rented many vacation homes and this one ranked as one of the most accommodating, comfortable and fun.

The road leading to the cabin was a one-lane gravel road with a huge drop-off and it was full of pot holes and a raised center. Our car bottomed out a few times. If you're a biker, forget it! The yard was littered with beer cans, plastic bags, etc.... The grill was nasty dirty. No grill brush, no scoop for the ashes, ashes overflowing the bucket and our contract said that the grill should be clean and scooped out. I guess they don't bother to check. The cabin was very dirty! The kitchen had dirty, moldy dishes in the dishwasher (as if someone waited weeks to run it), the cabinets and drawers were filthy and everytime I pulled up a chair or opened a cabinet, or touched a drawer-pull, it was sticky. I found myself washing my hands several times and then just gave up and cleaned everything myself. I also rewashed the dishes in the cabinets and drawers, because there was dirt and grease in the those receptacles as well. The blinds in every room were caked with dirt and I began to wonder if these people EVER clean the place! I felt yucky sleeping in the bed....the sheets were thread-bare. We had the added pleasure of killing three wasps that were flying around our room in the morning. When we removed the sheets from the bed at the end of our stay, there were yellow stains on the mattress and pillows. Yuck. The fireplace didn't work at all. I called the owner about this and didn't receive a call back till the following afternoon (after several calls and a couple of emails). He was argumentative and condescending. Not good customer relations! The hot tub wasn't working properly on the second night. The temperature wouldn't go past 92 degrees and we froze. (It was 40 degrees outside.) It was warm enough for us to climb in, but then we realized that it wasn't warm enough to stay in. ugh. It was awful! HANDS DOWN, THE WORST RENTAL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN!!!
