About Dawn Phillips

Jake and I have been married for 32 years September, 15th of 2016 We love to travel to all inclusive resorts (most of the time couples) and we have turned this cabin into a very special place for couples or friends to reconnect and relax. With our travels we know the details we expect and try to share that with others on the farm with the privacy and enjoyment that is hard to find! Jake and I actually are always looking for a quick getaway for our anniversary and we found after visiting many places that is was right here on our farm so we should share with others! We have now added a wedding chapel for elopements and vow renewals and I got ordained to conduct the ceremony... it can be a farm wedding/moon - stress free, but so special!

Dawn Phillips purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Dawn Phillips chose Heartland

This farm has been in Dawn's family for years so deep roots here... She actually grew up right here on the farm and hasn't left yet - must be a special place!

What makes this cabin unique

Birthday, Anniversary, Reconnect with significant other in a time gone by type atmosphere...Intimate Wedding with 20 or less people, Elopement, VOW RENEWAL in a tiny and very special 'masterpiece' chapel. Relax and enjoy some solitude with the privacy of the farm and nature all around from tiny donkey named Lulu, Llama named Maggie Lou, chickens, sheep and it a wonderful setting!

Peaceful and Beautiful !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Dawn & Jake, Thank you so much for allowing me and my poodle pup Jazzie to stay in your beautiful cabin. It was a treat for me to be able to get away and enjoy the peace and quiet for a few days as I celebrated my 25 years on the job at Walmart. It couldn't have been any better. I loved seeing the Chapel, the animals in the pasture, the huge deer walking around the lake and all the fish I caught. The Chapel is a lovely place and a great place for a country wedding. It was just a beautiful adventure overall and I can hardly wait to make another visit. I think Jazzie fell in love with one of the burros.. lol... May God bless and keep you always and may all your dreams come true. Again thank you so much for the wonderful time at your lovely ** Cabin by the Lake **..@ DaJaView Farms..

Perfect relaxing getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

After many, many days of research for a getaway cabin, we finally found this wonderful property, and came all the way from Chicago to enjoy it. It was everything we expected and more! Although we did not have the pleasure of meeting Dawn (she was gone for that weekend), Jake met us as soon as we pulled in and he immediately offered us some live bait for fishing and then showed us to the cabin. If we did not need to go to the store for food and drinks, we would have never left the property, and that is only time we did!! We spent the next few days sitting on the pier feeding fish, playing bags, building fires, bbqing, visiting all the animals, walking around the pond, listening to music and sitting on the porch in rocking chairs watching the birds bring food to their newly hatched babies. We never even turned on the tv. Who needs a tv when there is so much to look at?? This place has everything you need in the kitchen, bathroom, etc., so next time, we know we don't need to pack as much. Most of the reviews say that "they will be returning" as that is exactly what we are saying also! We are actually booked again in a few months because we could not wait very long for another weekend away from our very hectic schedules. Looking for ward to meeting Dawn on the next trip!!

Beautiful and relaxing and great hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

we were on our way back from NYC to FL and wanted to make a stop. This was perfect! Dawn and her husband are wonderful and so hospitable. The cabin is cozy and the deck with comfortable chairs and fire pit overlooking the small lake was beautiful. We stayed at the cabin all day -- no reason to leave. Loved seeing the animals. A perfect getaway!!
