About Phil Skyrm

'The sweetness of doing nothing', is my desire for everyone who wants to get away. We are taught many things but learning to relax generally isn't one of them. I love seeing people relax and enjoy themselves. When people stay with us they tell me a couple nights feels like a week of relaxation. I look forward to talking with you and helping you plan your getaway. Thx, Phil

Phil Skyrm purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Phil Skyrm chose Frenchburg

A local told me when I purchased this cabin 'It was the best kept secret at Cave Run Lake'. My family has enjoyed the beauty of the forest and the seclusion. Time seems to slow down when you view the 2 private acres adjoining the Forest. You notice the squirrels, hummingbirds, turkeys and deer. All you see is an abundance of wildlife and trees. This property has natural beauty and all the amenities you enjoy!

What makes this cabin unique

Surfing the internet on a 400 sq. foot screened in porch in your Amish rocker, glider or porch swing takes your experience to the next level. Taking you picture with 'Bogo', the friendly Bear and gazing at the stars from a hydro-therapy hot tub in a private setting is an experience that you will enjoy. I find many people with a full agenda staying at the cabin, grilling, surfing the internet, hot tubbin, wildlife viewing or enjoying the generous satellite TV. There is something for every age group. Some stay,while others get out and do, then meet in the middle. Choose your own plans and we will send you a welcome packet via e-mail with directions to most everywhere you will want to go so you waste no time on your vacation.

Owner's Response: You guys are the pleasure. I’ve said many times ‘ It’s time to come back to the forest’, leave the strip malls and city streets for awhile and experience what our creator has placed in the earth to release peace and tranquility back into our lives. You seen that and embraced it. Thx ....Phil

Very cozy, clean, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My family was looking for a true getaway and "The Sweetest Thing" did not disappoint! A few days before our trip, Phil called me just to go over instuctions (hot tub, fireplace, etc.) and to welcome my family. Upon arrival, we thumbed through our welcome packet, which was very helpful. In the packet, were detailed directions for stores, food, and attractions in the area. My only disappointment was the long (but beautiful) drive over to the natural bridge, only to find out that pets aren't allowed on the skylift or any of the trails leading up to it. There are a couple of pet friendly trails in that area, but neither of them lead to the natural bridge. Of course, that is of no fault of the owner, so that will not affect my review. Just a head's up for pet owners. My family loved the hot tub, which was super nice, as well as the two fireplace stoves. The furniture was cozy and the beds were comfortable, with plenty of extra quilts and blankets for those cool, early spring nights! All in all, if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway with your family, this cabin is great for that! We look forward to staying there again!

Cute cabin, nice stay!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had never been to this area before, this cabin is in the middle of it all! Beautiful drives to all the attractions! The cabin, is adorable, just perfect for an Anniversary get away!! The hot tub was amazing, this week may have been the 1st day of Spring, but we had it all as far as the weather goes. Would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the area with the leaves on the trees!! Phil the owner has been great, all the instructions were spot on!! Recommend this little gem for sure!!
