Erin and Val,
We've cruised Alaska , Skinny Dipped the desolate beaches of Molokai Hawaii , driven Route 66 and the pacific coast hwy. Been to the Colorado and Canadian Rockies, visited the Frontenac in Quebec City and the Chateau in Lake Louise , Alberta . Swam the ocean at Prince Edward Island , Camped from Nova Scotia to California and from Canada to Florida and to think a place this unique and relaxing is right here in our home state – 250 miles from Home! As McArthur said “We shall Return!”.

"Peace, quiet, and serenity. All good medicines to rejuvenate the soul & spirit. Sitting on top of the Rock watching the morning fog over the lake, or watching the glowing embers of the campfire,so very soothing.......You have carved out a little paradise. The cabin was warm and cozy, the hot tub relaxing, and the woods peaceful. Thanks for providing us city folks a place to hide!"

I would write some long wonderful message about the cabin, but I'm too relaxed right now to think. And I don't want to interrupt this wonderful peaceful feeling. We debated getting a gun and holding up hostage in here for a week or two(ha ha). Best Wishes on continued success with the cabin!! We will be back!

Paul & Kelley

If I’d had more time, I’d have melted into the fabric of this fabulous cabin & little piece of beauty & peace on earth! Love it, Love it Love it!!!

Erin and Val,

Thank you so much for a wonderful 3-day weekend. The cabin is absolutely beautiful and all the details are amazing. Even in January weather, the hike up to Big Rock was great and we’re glad we ventured out. On our next visit, we'll be sure to bring enough food for the whole stay. I figured we’d enjoy a night out, but we didn’t want to leave! We ended up getting a pizza to bring back to eat snuggled up in front of the fire. While we didn’t want to leave, we’ll return to the world refreshed, relaxed and ready to face whatever life throws our way.

Erin and Val,

This place is so beautiful. I must say I never expected so much enjoyment in just 2 days. I haven’t been this relaxed in years. This cabin, the pampering, the history, the amenities, the greetings, the decorations, it was all just so extraordinary. I could never in my wildest dreams have imagined it being any more wonderful. We took your advice and walked the trails which were great especially after reading the history of the area in the book you provided. It made it all so much more interesting & exciting. I'm already planning my next getaway for us to come back. I don't know how you could out-do this cabin. We could stay forever!

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 22nd anniversary. Our favorite part was sitting in the hot tub watching the Humming Birds. Can’t wait to come back!!

Dear Val & Erin,

This place has turned out to be our perfect romantic getaway. It puts the “r” back in romance and after 31 years of marriage and 3 kids later, this “diamond in the rough” inspired us! The hot tub was great on a damp rainy day, having a drink & listening to the Moody Blues. Having no agenda does a person good. Thanks for sharing this amazing place! Good luck with your next cabin. We can’t wait to see how creative you get with that tone. We’ll be back, hopefully for a longer stay!

Erin and Val,

Thanks again for a great weekend. Thank you even more the champagne and glasses on top of Big Rock. It was even better when Todd got down on one knee & asked me to marry him up there. I got a “big rock” on “Big Rock”! We are in love with your cabin and everything that comes along with it. We can’t wait to come back in the Spring. Thanks again for making this weekend so special. I will never forget.

Haley and Todd


We were impressed with every detail! You thought of everything!! Your little oasis washed away the everyday grind and brought back the truly important things in life. From the cozy atmosphere of the cabin to the tranquility of the outdoors. It has been everything we hoped for and more. Your labor of love and the touch of family history made our visit even more special. – Until next time.

We had a terrific time here at Big Rock Cabin! Can't think of a single thing that you guys haven't thought of to make your guest's stay a wonderful experience. We came to enjoy a few days of horseback riding, which is always a thrill up in these beautiful hills. but to come back each day to enjoy this cabin afterward was the icing on the cake! Thanks for doing such a great job!

Greetings from Kent Ohio~!

By far – the nicest cabin we’ve ever stayed in and we’ve stayed in MANY! The cabin couldn’t have been designed better. It is a piece of art. Yep, we “get it”!!! The sound system Rocks! We’ll be back and send more N.E. Ohio friends!

Abby & Chris

Three words…Details….Details… Details!! We loved it! Very great thing to get away from phones, kids and clocks for awhile. Really enjoyed this little lovers getaway that is not far from home. We both had a wonderful 4-year wedding anniversary. Can’t wait to come back and stay in Glen Erin.

Thanks you,

p.s…loved the hot tub so much we want one at home.


Erin and Val,

Thanks for your wonderful hospitality & such an awesome cabin! We were able to unwind after 2 long hectic days of wedding preparation and become like jelly! The view from Big Rock was amazing. Being up so high, listening to the birds and nature….Truly a blessing. I felt like Old Raridan’s spirit was watching us. We plan on returning as soon as we can. Blessings to you both,

In the process of remodeling this website, I decided to find some new excerpts. I sat down with several guestbooks and a few paperclips to mark favorite entries. I ran out of paperclips part way thru the first book!
Thanks again to everyone,
