Our family of 5 stayed in cabin 2 over a long weekend, driving out to Oklahoma from DC. It was perfect for us. It was quiet, clean and great for our 8,7 and 4 year olds. They loved roasting hot dogs, playing with the pets, and exploring the very safe grounds. Ralph (owner) is a true host and perfect mayor... More

This is a perfect place to stay to explore Cave City and the Mammoth Caves. Cabins are cute, cozy, clean, quaint, and quirky. Owners are in the process of making updates to the cabins. It has a small community-feel so you will get to know your neighbors - having campfires and relaxing outdoors. Cabins includes a/c, fridge, microwave and cable... More

On first impression was a little surprised how close the cabins were on the street. But that never was an issue, very conveniently located to the national park entrance and to Cave City. We stayed in cabin one which is basically a one bedroom house. Old but clean on the inside, newer pullout couch bed, all the utensils you need... More

We stayed two nights in one of their little cabins. Cute (meaning small) and clean enough. No creepy crawlies. It's just outdated. Like stepping back into 1950s, but with satellite TV.

You hit it right on the head! It's "Camping" without "CAMPING"! And our brochure says "Step Back in Time and Relax" We're working on the insides. It's a labor of lone and a work in progress. More

It did not looked bad, until we got inside, It had a really bad humidity smell. Thats only complain i had. Staff was nice , the smell was the only reason we did not spend the night. I guess cabin 6,7 are the ones with humidity problems.

I'm sorry you did not like the cabin. If you had said something while you were here, I may have been able to put you in a different cabin. If one was available. If you're in the area again, give us a call and we can place you in a different cabin, on us. More
