  1. We just celebrated our 4th Anniversary at these warm, cozy cabins this past weekend and had a wonderful time.. The cabin was very clean and inviting. When we walked in, there was relaxing music playing, fireplace going, and a welcome basket waiting for us.. It included cinnamon bread (which I might add was delicious), sparkling grape juice, chocolate kisses, and two white plush, soft robes to enjoy during our stay. Not to mention the hot tub was heavenly …especially with the snow falling. Would we ever come back? The answer is YES and I would recommend it to you too!! You won’t be disappointed. Can’t wait till the next time!!

    Thank you so much for everything,

  2. We stayed in Country Charm Cabin. It was more then we expected. Very cozy and very peaceful. We had a wonderful time. We usually go camping that time of year but decided we would go to Serenity Log Cabins this time. We are hooked and will now be coming back. The personal touch you all put in the cabins with the robes, juice and cinnamon bread was wonderful and don’t forget the chocolate. The back porch was our best time, we sat there most of the time just listening to the quietness. Hot tub was fun too…….

  3. We stayed in the nature nook cabin and loved loved loved it. It was clean and very cozy. It was our first time there and for sure we will be going back. The black bear theme in the cabin was adorable. We especially loved the bear and lights in the rafters. The deck was great along the view. It was very private and peaceful. The cabin had everything we needed including the can opener that I forgot to bring. We didn’t want to leave. It was a wonderful 3 day getaway and we are looking forward to going back in the winter.

  4. My husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary at Natures Nook. The cabin was fantastic. We really enjoyed being able to sit in the hot tub and enjoy the fire. This was the perfect place to get away and relax. The movie selection was great. Having four children, I can’t remember the last time we actually sat down together and watched a movie. Once we walked it, we never wanted to leave. It was such a relaxing enviorment. We can’t wait to have an excuse to return again very soon. Thanks to the Eckerts for such a great place to relax and all the attention to detail that they put into preparing for our stay. The personalized basket was really special!

  5. Where to begin that doesn’t repeat what others have said… This being tough because the cabins are all what has been said and more.
    2010 was an extremely tough year for us due to injuries and illness. We needed a getaway to recharge and start healing. The cabin we stayed at provided us with both. As soon as we entered the cabin we both felt a peacefulness come over us. We spent the entire time just relaxing and healing. I would like to say it was more of a spiritual healing than physical.
    Regina and Dave have created a haven. I wouldn’t change a thing. We look forward to going back many times over the years to come.

  6. We couldn’t have had a better and more relaxed time. Everything was wonderful from the moment we walked through the door. The soft music playing, the rose petals on the bed and the gift basket with a personal note just gave us such a special feeling. The fires in the chimnea and the hot tub were so relaxing. We will definately recommend Serenity to all of our friends and family. We can’t wait to come back again.

  7. Absolutely wonderful! My husband and I love the cabins. We had such a relaxing time and can not wait until this March for our 2nd wedding anniversary. Very clean, cozy and fun. Just right to keep the spark in your marriage. Thanks so much for giving us a piece of heaven on earth.

  8. We have stayed in these cabins a few times before and after Dave and Regina bought them. Their extra special little things make us feel like it’s our home away from home! We have stayed at cabins in Hocking Hills and Tennessee and they do not compare to these! Dave and Regina, that is because you take pride in making sure everyone feels welcome. We are so glad we found these cabins so close to home. We feel like we can leave for the weekend and know we are still close if our 3 little ones need us. Can’t wait to stay again real soon, maybe it will snow again while we are there. Nature’s Nook is calling our name 🙂

  9. In the 5 years we have been married, this is the first time we have ever had a weekend alone together, and let me tell you, it was much needed and more amazing then my expectations! The cabin was so warm and cozy, it felt like a home instead of a strange place, and the deck with the sunrise was absolutely gorgeous! The mixture of the hot tub and cool Nov. air, was heavenly! ( I love the peep hole in the privacy fence! That was my favorite part! I sat one morning soaking and watching a woodpecker for about 20 min.) I can’t tell you enough how this has effected us, and I am truely thankful! We look forward to returning, hopefully making this our new tradition for our anniversary! I have to tell you, my husband was so touched by your poem in the scrap book about the boys and he wanted me to Thank them for all of their hard work helping out!
    We would and will recommend this Cabin to anyone wanting a perfect getaway!

  10. Our stay at Nature’s nook cabin was fantastic. We could not believe the amazing atmosphere when we arrived at the cabin. It was an amazing getaway that we really needed in the midst of a hectic school year. We had all kinds of ideas of what we wanted to see and do but just could not leave the cabin (except to get an AMAZING PRETZEL). It was the best money we ever spent and loved being in the hot tub with a fire going in the firepit. Dave and Regina really made our 2nd anniversary very special for us. We highly recommend the wonderful cabins and we look forward to coming back again real soon. In fact we are already making plans to return.

  11. What a fantastic, cozy cabin! We stayed in Nature’s Nook for 3 nights.I thought we might get bored,so I planned different hiking & sightseeing activities. But the cabin was so comfortable inside and outside with the deck and the hot tub, we only left the cabin once, to get groceries. We cooked our meals together on the grill, read books on the deck, relaxed in the hot tub, and watched movies while cuddling on the love seat. The owners are very thoughtful and easy to reach. They left us a welcome basket to find upon our arrival and books of activities and maps of the area. We highly recommend Serenity Log Cabins! And we will return again for another get-away. Thanks for a wonderful place to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary!

  12. What a wonderful little cabin!!! Not only was it CLEAN but when we arrived we were greeted with soft music playing, a “fire” flickering and a basket of goodies on our bed. Would highly recommend this cabin to any couple needing to get away for a weekend of romance and relaxation! Big thanks to the Eckert’s for making our anniversary so very memorable! What a blessing it was to find this place! =)

  13. I am not exactly sure where to start. This was the most amazing getaway that my husband and I have ever had. This getaway is the perfect way to renew and revitalize. The welcoming touches are surpassed by no other. Nature’s Nook is a wonderful little cabin with a lot of amenities. The back deck facing the woods in the rising sun was the perfect place to have a cup of coffee and listen to the birds singing. The hot tub was phenomenal. The ambience that was left for us to enter was beyond compare and has set a high bar for us in romantic getaways. I don’t think that we will ever be able to be as happy anywhere else. We would recommend this little getaway to anyone. The cleanliness and freshness of the cabin was like it was brand new. Dave and Regina are very gracious hosts. Kudos to you both and thank you for a very lovely weekend. Michael and I left feeling rested, renewed and revitalized.

  14. Wow! An amazing get-a-way! Thank you, David and Regina for creating such an awesome place to relax! We would recommend these cabins to anyone!

  15. Just wanted to say that we had a GREAT!!! time this weekend in the NOOK. It was very relaxing and romantic. The cabin was more than I ever could have imagined and I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to stay in a normal hotel room again. It was like we were staying in a friends cabin for the weekend, not a rented space. Best wishes that you will be booked solid except for the next time we are ready to come and stay. We are hoping to come back again in the early fall to see the trees as they start to change colors. The movie selection was great. Thanks for the GREAT WEEKEND.

    Well the snow came and the area was covered in white! It was great! My wife and I now make it a tradition to come stay at these cabins every year the week before the 14th ..Valentines Day…wow what can we say, its always perfect!….you know you have something when everyone keeps making the trip back to stay over and over….the attention to detail these great people put into making our and everyones stay a moment to remember is fantastic.
    I also must say how much my wife and I love the movies in the cabin…we saw “Flywheel” and “Facing the Giants” last year…and yes we now have them in our home collection also and this time “Fireproof” which I just ordered…..Great Job you two! We tell all our friends about your hidden piece of paradise out there in Hillsboro…and yes we will be back!

  17. My husband and I spent New Years Eve and Day at Nature’s Nook. It was the best time we have ever had to bring in the New Year. I just want to thank the Eckert’s for allowing Santa to return to the cabin to leave me and my husband 2 small gifts. The decorations were absolutely beautiful. This was our second time visiting and it was great! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. We will be back soon.

  18. My husband and I stayed there for our honeymoon in June 2 years ago. It was really nice and quiet and a lot of fun. We loved the hot tub. We are going to try to come back for our 2 yr. anniversary. I’ve also recommended it to a friend of mine that’s getting married.

  19. We loved staying in the cabin just about a year ago. It was such a wonderful time for me and my husband. I will always remember the beautiful, very peaceful and private patio area. This was the best getaway that I could have ever found just doing a search for cozy getaways close to our home. We plan on coming back real soon.

    Thank you,

  20. We love staying in the Country Charm Cabin. We started a couple years ago and will continue every year until we can no longer drive to the cabin. The views, lakes, and antique shopping fill our weekend with so much fun and great memories. There is so much to do and so little time to do them. I tell everyone I know about this beautiful place. We are always showing pictures too. This is by far the best getaway for us and we will always treasure our memories together.
    Thank you,

  21. We stayed in the Country Charm over the 4th of July weekend,2009. It was breath taking as soon as we entered the door. The starter kit to a wonderful weekend was absolutley adorable. When we opened the back door we were thrilled with the privacy we had.The music playing when we walked in was just the right touch to bring tears to your eyes.We will never plan a get-a-way weekend anywhere else. We really didn’t want to come back to reality. I have booked the Nature’s Nook for my son & his wife while he is in from Afghanistan for his R&R before returning. There is no better gift I could give them…hands down.
    Thanks again! 🙂

  22. We stayed at the Country Charm Cabin last summer (2008) to celebrate my graduation from nursing school. It was a wonderful relaxing weekend which we both enjoyed immensely! The cabin was cozy and charming. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and grilling steaks on the back deck! We appreciated the peaceful setting. The getaway was just what we needed! Thanks Dave and Regina for making our stay special! We definitely plan to return!

  23. My husband Jami brought me here to Country Charm Cabin for my 32nd birthday. It was wonderful! The hot tub was really relaxing and the snow everywhere was amazing. I wouldn’t change a thing about this cabin!!!! This is home away from home. We will be back soon!

  24. We spent our honeymoon getaway here! It was so beautiful. When we first came in we both said “WOW”! It was very warm, smelled fantastic and best of all it was personalized with gifts for us and robes. I am in the Marine Corp so not only was it nice to escape the hardship of that, but to be able to relax with my wife was the best I have felt in years!

  25. We had a wonderful time at the Nature’s Nook Cabin. I could not imagine staying anywhere else. I can not tell you all the times I said “This is so cool”. All the special things they have done, WOW! We will be back again. We live 367 miles away, but it is well worth the drive!

  26. Perfect Couple’s Getaway
    Have stayed in many cabins–Ohio, Tennesee, West Virginia–this was by far the best!!! Beauty, relaxation, peaceful, romantic—I could go on and on, but if you are looking for a place to escape with that special someone, this is the place to go.



  27. My wife and I spent 2 nights at Serenity Log Cabins and it was perfect for us. The peacefulness and being away from all of the activities was wonderful. We like something that is away from the hustle and bustle of life, where just the 2 of us can be together and this fits that perfectly. The hot tub was wonderful and made me want to start saving up for one of our own. The personal touches made us feel special and the cleanliness was tops. If you need a break from all that is happening in your life, book a night or 2 or 3 at Serenity Log Cabins. It’s well worth the effort.

  28. Mary and I spent the weekend of 2/7-2/9/09 at Serenity….I must say how impressed both of us were. I have stayed at many cabins ..especially in the Smokies and nothing compared to the attention to detail these wonderful people put into our 2 day stay…from the moment we set foot inside….the personalization made this the best stay at a cabin we ever had….I was so impressed that a good friend is getting married…we have decided to send them here for their honeymoon…and yes we will be back ….

  29. My husband and I were privileged to stay in the adorable Nature’s Nook cabin this past summer. When we arrived at the cabin everything was personalized…which made us feel so SPECIAL and planned for! =) There was a fun romantic basket sitting on the bed. We LOVED the cabin, the decorations, the hot tub, the chimenea, the private drive, the neat little lights lining the drive, the beautiful landscape outside… we loved EVERYTHING!! It was soooo fun just having such a neat, clean and wonderful place to get away together and relax!! Since we live in South America we don’t get a chance to go too often…but we would love to visit the cabins again when we can. =)

  30. Beautiful little cabins! We love these cabins, especially since they are so close. When we want a quiet, romantic time with just US we go to these cabins. I think that we have stayed in these cabins at least 3x’s. They are always VERY CLEAN, Cozy, Warm & Lots of personal touches! We highly Recommend these cabins for a Peaceful getaway. We are waiting for it to snow when we have some time to get away to go again during Winter ’09. Love it when it snows while using the Hot tub! 🙂

  31. I have stayed in Serenity Log Cabins three times since the Eckert’s have owned them. It was a fun experience to go to each cabin with its unique, but different decor, and extreme cleanliness! The personal touches as you enter are very welcoming! It is evident that time and care is put into getting ready for your scheduled stay! The quiet atmosphere makes it easy for you to get all the rest you need -and the bed is comfortable. It was fun grilling out on the back porch and the hot tub is marvelous. It was worth the price!

    I highly recommend anyone to try this wonderful getaway. You won’t be sorry! I am looking forward to going back again. Every time I have gone, there has been some kind of nice improvement!

    From a “Happy Camper”! 🙂 Jackie Foley
