What guests are saying...

Had a very relaxing, easy weekend. The bed was very uncomfortable and i would definitely bring an air matress next time, but the scenery and hot tub made up for the lack of sleep.
Cabin was very well stocked with all basic necessities plus. Very pleasant and peaceful. We took our 5 month old pup and he had a blast down at the creek. My husband spend a lot of his time fishing. Town was close enough in case we needed anything else. All in all we had a good time. My husband had a blast conversing with John and bought trees from John which will be a lasting memory of the Red Cloud Cabin. Which God willing we will be visiting again.
The property was basic but comfortable, and the location on the river was beautiful. We caught several small fish and the dog swam until she could barely stay awake! We saw several deer and Axis, as well as a racoon crossing the shallow part of the river. We give the property a 5 because it is exactly as reflected in the online posting. For our purposes we would have liked a little better stocked kitchen, but my wife loves to cook, even when we travel. But all the essentials were there and we had a great time. Fun place for 2 to get out of the city.
The Stronghold was absolutely relaxing. We were able to slept late, cooked full meals, fished and toured the surrounding area. Tricia was so kind and accommodating. She answered our questions and addressed our concerns. Our favorite thing to do was sit in the private hot tub and star gaze late into the night. This place is perfect for couples. We will be back.
My husband and I had a great time staying at the stronghold. We hiked the natural area 25 min away and then cooled off in the creek in the back. We were able to disconnect from society because there truly is no wifi or cell reception. Our dogs loved it there. First water trip for one of the pups and he started getting his swimming legs under him. It was a great place to play with them and get much needed R&R.
Tricia and Jon, We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to book with you. It was the perfect getaway for my husband and I. We enjoyed everything about it. The cabin was AMAZINGLY clean, y'all were the perfect host/hostess. We enjoyed the conversations, especially with Jon in the mornings. Although, you gave us ALL the privacy we wanted, we just couldn't resist our morning talks with Jon. The water was refreshing. The cabin was comfortable. The scenery was beautiful and the quiet was amazing! Thank you again! I highly recommend staying if you are in need of some quiet and close enough to surrounding towns to get out and explore, too!
