“The Good Life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2010

Wow! After having traveled to hundreds of "Cookie cutter" and luxury hotels in the past two years "The Nest" Surpased ALL expectations. With unbelievable landscape and privacy, accompanied by cleanliness and amenities, "The Nest", "Is A Breath Of Fresh Air." After a long leisurely afternoon spent relaxing on our private back porch, enjoying our own personal view of the surrounding woods and landscape, we traveled just down the hill to one of many fabulous restaurants, where we enjoyed mouth watering Italian cuisine. After retreating back to our own personal 4 room suite, we enjoyed some champaigne and a soak in the full sized hot tub that was waiting just for us in our quaint and very private cabin. We retired to our King sized bed and awoke with the ability to prepare a private breakfast in our kitchen. We checked out and traveled to two of the nearby state parks before returning home relaxed and refreshed.
Thank You! Al and Maggie for the wonderful weekend we spent at ur paradise getaway. We will definately be returning!

We had a nice private stay at "The Nest". The cabin was sooo comfortable and cozy. Loved the hot tub right in the cabin too. Al & Maggie were just so friendly and helpful, with good information about Savanna and the surroundiing area.
Will visit again soon

Having stayed at many cabin/B&B destinations, I have to say this was oneof the worst. The cabin was dirty, run-down and hasn't been overhauled in probably 20 years. The chlorine in the hot tub is WAY to high, the fumes burned our eyes and noses.


Honestly, with a little bit of elbow grease and money, these cabins could be updated and make the stay so much more pleasurable.

As it stands, for the price it's definitely not worth the stay.

We were very disappointed with this place! It advertises, "on the river"----NOT! The room was old, not very clean, a mix of eclectic, old furnishings that didn't go with the cabin theme. The owners were not that friendly, and rather demanding---"make sure your lights are headed toward the barn" and "take the trash out to the dumpster when you leave"---come on! We paid a ridiculously high price for this and when we opened the jacuzzi tub cover we both were coughing and gagging b/c of the high chlorine level. We would not recommend this place to anyone!

The Nest is Savanna's best kept secret. You need to find them via the internet or word of mouth. There isn't even a sign on the road. You get directions when you make your reservations. Lovely cabins...3 of them..with complete peace and privacy. Extremely clean and well built. Comfy beds, great deck and hot tub in the cabin. The owners are great and helpful as can be. Highly recommend the Nest if you are looking for peace and quiet.

  • Liked — The tranquil setting.
  • Disliked — Loved everything.
