This place was absolutely perfect -- just what we wanted. We stayed in Cougar's Bluff Cabin - I believe the smallest of their cabins. yes, its small, but just enough space for us... two adults and two border collies! We were gone hiking during much of the day, and had great weather for November and spent the afternoons early evenings...

This is my second visit with my sister & my dog. We stayed in Bears Den last year and we loved it so much that we came home right away booking this year trip so that we could stay longer and book a cabin with a larger kitchen. We went from four days last year to nine days this year....

Have visited Rim Rock's & Garden of the Gods many times and would only stay at Rim Rock Dogwoods Cabin.

I'd stayed in Coyote Hollow several times and each time I think it's been my best visit ever. This time was no different. The cabin is cozy and comfortable. I love the back porch with forest view. The cabin has everything you need, including brochures for things to do in the area. Already planning my next visit.

We stayed at Eagles retreat and loved it! Very close to garden of the gods and rim rock. The cabin was clean and plenty of space. Kids loved the swing on the tree behind the cabin. Definitely will be back!

Our family rented this cabin in March of 2015. Ten of us were here at one time. Having always wanted a cabin in the woods, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Really nice cabin in a beautiful part of the country. We took advantage of all of that. Our plans are to return again this spring, and rent the largest cabin. Or...

My family of four (with two teenage girls) truly enjoyed our stay at Rim Rock's Dogwood Cabin and look forward to returning. The loaction is centrally located to many activities. The cabin exceeded our expectations as the porch was most enjoyable. I recommend referencing the "Quick List of What There is to do" under the Attractions section of the website....

I don't know how it's possible to spend an entire week with rain and storms and come home completely refreshed and recharged. We stayed at Eagle Retreat again and enjoyed every minute. Ample room to move around, fix food, relax. The DVR player was used more than normal because of the storms but that forced us to sit back and...

We just finished another fabulous visit to Rim Rock's Dogwood Cabins - our 7th year in a row! The cabins are extremely comfortable and well supplied - Bob and Dixie and their team think of everything!

We enjoyed our stay in the cabins. It's a great setting and it was perfect for our family gathering. I wanted to give it more stars but there were several small things that need attention. The cabins have bath towels but no hand towels or washcloths. Some of the kitchen towels are really grungy and stained. The plates, glasses and...
