Testimonials

Thank you very much for a beautiful backdrop to my 26th birthday. The cabin is meticulously kept. This was integral in making this birthday one of my most cherished memories!

Matthew and friends    Athens, Ohio   

Thanks for a great weekend. We had a wonderful time with our OU daughter and son for Sibs Weekend. Mike, thanks for directing us out of the wilderness! Hope to see you again soon!

Frank and Sandy Kolasinski    Chardon, Ohio   

Thanks for an enjoyable Mom’s Weekend. It was so much nicer enjoying time with the boys and relaxing instead of fighting the crowds in town.

Luanne, Jesse, Sally, and Tricia   

Thanks so much for our romantic weekend. It couldn’t have turned out any better. The weather was a little wet and dreary, but that didn’t matter. Your website doesn’t do your place justice—it’s so much prettier in person. Thanks again!

Susan and Scott    Newport, Michigan   

Thank you for the “rustic” cabin experience. We felt very at home in your little place in the woods. Our family reunion benefited from the relaxing evenings in the Jacuzzi. Thank you so much—

My friend and I stayed at twin oak for a hunting trip with Pacconi whitetails. The cabin was beyond expectation, clean, comfortable and had a homey feel. They have everything you could need there for a great price.

I am so grateful you have provided my family with the opportunity to stay in your charming cabin while we celebrated my college graduation! I can’t wait to come back and visit as an alumni.

Thanks for a wonderful weekend. The cookies and other special touches make a big difference. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch listening to Mike’s turkey calls and watching the beautiful sunrise after the rain on Sunday morning.

Jim and Kathleen    Dayton, Ohio   

We had a wonderful time. I never win anything, so when I won a night free at the Bridal Expo, I was very excited since I had picked up a brochure and wanted to stay soon. It is so cozy. The surroundings are beautiful. We will definitely be back in the spring for a longer stay. Loved the hot tub. Thanks for everything!
