For our 13th Wedding Anniversary, my Husband and I stayed in the Bohl Cabin. From the moment we walked in, we were in love with everything. It was everything we expected and more.
We went for a weekend and wished for a few more extra days.
Because it was Christmas time, the cabin was decorated inside and out and we even had a Christmas tree too! How cool is that?!
Yes, the cabin is small, the bathroom is right next to the kitchen, and the stairs are steep but this is a restored cabin from the 1800's. That is what a typical home was like back then! You have to reaaaallly love the person/persons you are staying with, in this cabin!
We knew what we wanted and what we were getting when we booked this cabin. It's a cabin in the woods, not a luxury hotel!
Your stay at Settler's Crossing is not for the ultimate in comfort, it is for the ultimate experience and the chance to live the life of a pioneer without having to use an outhouse.
We were quite amazed they were able to update the cabin so well with modern conveniences.
A basket of delicious baked goodies was brought to the cabin each evening. They always seemed to know when we were gone and slipped in the cabin like Santa Claus, and left our treats.
The refrig. was stocked with juices, fresh milk, coffee, jelly, and butter. There was a wide variety of cereals and a basket full of cocoa, tea, popcorn, and instant oatmeal.
Plenty of towels, shampoo, soaps, etc. Everything you would have in your own home.
The only thing we looked for but they didn't have were ziplock bags to take home our leftover baked goodies that were so delicious!!!
Our one and only complaint was the seating in the livingroom. It was not very comfy for us to settle in and watch TV. So, we did what any good pioneer would do, we made a bed on the floor, in front of a warm fire and watched a good movie.
Both mornings we woke up early and took a walk on the grounds.
We visited the donkey, and the sheep. We watched the deer run and yes, that little red birdie would tap tap tap on the bedroom window, both mornings!
We know Bohl Cabin is a home away from home to many many people. But to us, it is "our" special place. We just left yesterday and we already want to go back with our 2 young Daughters and share the experience all over again, with them.
