This was my 3rd visit to Rim Rock Dogwood Cabins. Stayed at Cougar's Bluff this time. The cabin was well furnished and very clean! Beautiful woodland setting. Quite and peaceful. Amazing trail hiking all year round. But the best thing is the incredible level of service shown by the owners. I belong to a resort club and do a lot... More

Our cabin was exactly as pictured and described in the website, including a very large screen porch and fire ring with free firewood. The site is large and we could only see one other cabin from ours. There are... More

We stayed in the Deer Run cabin. It was well-equipped and comfortable, but small. It is said to sleep 8; by my count, it could actually sleep 10. But those numbers are based on beds, not overall space. The cabin itself is small and cramped. That is offset somewhat by the lovely screened side porch. We spent most of our... More

Couldn't have hoped for more! Cozy, yet had every comfort I could have hoped for! The AC worked perfectly, and it was HOT out! There were replacement trash bags, coffee filters, and toilet paper....little things, but the things that are often missing at cabins!

Beautiful setting. We stayed in Bear's Den cabin. Very clean. Very quiet. We found board games and puzzles in a cabinet and they were a pleasant surprise. Centrally located between the cabins in our area, we found a covered pavilion with horse shoes and bean bag games. Bring bug spray. The bugs were thick as we walked the property. Gas... More

Great property. Will visit again. Close to the right hiking trails... the beach area and pinic tables at ponds hollow will be your new favorite chill spot. Fishing swimming and hiking all In one day. I visited back in 2011 but I couldn't select that far back...
