Our first trip to Timber Ridge was wonderful. Right in the heart of the Shawnee nat'l forest and conveniently located to the famous Garden of the Gods therein. Timber Ridge is well known for its treehouse cabins (and rightly so) but we stayed in the Sassafras cabin which is one of their standard cabins. Fantastic!! It is a true log cabin with all modern amenities. Beautiful and spotlessly clean interior with a rustic feel. Outstanding kitchen, bathroom (with claw foot tub,and shower), and living area. The upstairs contained two beds and a daybed. Each floor had ample climate control. The beds were quite comfy. Large quantity of wood nearby for fires in the firepit by the hammock and camping style chairs. Pet friendly! Extremely convenient. Truly a hassle free location. Elizabeth and her staff have thought of it all. All you have to do is show up! Bring all the food you want and cook and serve on the ware provided or drive a short distance to your favorite restaurant. I will be returning without a doubt!
