Champaign-Urbana, Illinois
Reviewed 25 April 2015

This cabin was charming! We have stayed in the Bear's Den with a group before, but the Cougar was perfect for a couple. So comfortable that it truly feels like a home away from home. We brought our two small dogs and they instantly settled in.

I was afraid that dog-friendly cabins might not be as nice as some of the cabins we've stayed that don't allow dogs. I couldn't have been more wrong! We stayed for the weekend in Coyote Hollow. The cabin was adorable and very clean. Our dogs loved it, too! We hiked Rim Rock, which is just across the road, and Garden...

Always friendly, clean and beautiful. Wonderful get away. We have stayed several times in different cabins and can't wait to go back. They have everything set up so beautifully there. Several things to do away from the cabins as well. Just an all around great little get away every time.

It is a great area to go an escape for a weekend or longer. My boyfriend and I live in a big city, so being able to sit back next to a bon fire and relax to the sounds of the woods and the stars was just what we needed. As well, the trails backing up to the cabins will...

Instead of my daughter traveling home for Thanksgiving, we decided to meet here for Thanksgiving weekend. She brought her dogs. We stayed in Coyote Hollow. Her friend joined us for the last part of the weekend. The property is nice. We enjoyed walking the trail on the property. The entrance to Rim Rock is across the road. We recommend this...

I surprised my husband with a weekend get-a-way for his birthday. We were headed to Rim Rock's Dogwood Cabins and I didn't have anything to go by except for the website photos and information - so I didn't know what to really expect. We arrived Friday night and there were amber lights strung on our enclosed front porch area. Three...

We stayed at Bear's Den in September 2012. Family of 5. Fully furnished, didn't miss anything, they had it all. Grounds were awesome, plenty to do. Owners are a pleasure to work with. Plenty to do in the area.

Hubby and I stayed in the Bear's Den for 3 nights and absolutely loved every minute! The cabin was adorable and had plenty of room to relax.
