My husband and I took a trip down to the Shawnee Nat'l Forest for our anniversary. We choose Bob and Dixie's cabin because the location was ideal and the website looked great. We could not have been more pleased when we arrived. Immediately you feel welcome and relaxed. Not only is everything there that you will need, except food, it has sweet personal touches that make you feel like you are home. Bob and Dixie have gone the extra mile to make your stay as relaxing as possible.
The afternoon we arrived, we hiked the Rim Rock trail that you can get to by a walk from our cabin. It is an awesome trail. We spent the next day hiking Garden of the Gods. The area is an amazing landscape that truely is awe inspiring. Before we left, we hiked the trail around Bob and Dixie's property. They have even thought of making an inviting space to sit and listen to the stream. It is really beautiful and a pretty good workout!
All in all, our stay at Rim Rock Cabin's could not have been better. They are gracious hosts that make you feel so welcome and content. We are looking forward to another stay.
