We stayed here for our anniversay. Left the kids with grandma and took the dogs. Cabin was easy to find. It is close to a paved road, but think nor more than a dozen cars went by the whole weekend. Everything was clean and there was a nice electric heater running in the bedroom when we arrived. With that and the electric fireplace in living room, we were plenty warm. We took the dogs on a walk, then came back and built a fire outside and sat and enjoyed the quiet surroundings. Loved that the front porch and back deck had gates so dogs could hang out. Hot tub was nice and clean, a couple jets not working, but not a big deal. We would definitely stay there again. It was perfect for a couple! , October 2018

We absolutely loved our time at Jack's Little Log Cabin! The cabin is very clean and comfortable. The owners have done a wonderful job furnishing it with just about everything you might need for a weekend getaway. We spent our days exploring the area (many great wineries... be sure and visit Heinrichshaus!) and our evenings relaxing on the front porch, back deck, and (of course) the hot tub. Highly recommended. We are already talking about planning a return trip! , October 2018

My husband and I loved the cabin. It was quiet and peaceful. Beautiful scenery and well stocked with everyday items. We loved it! It was perfect for our honeymoon. , August 2018

My 4th trip to your cabin in the woods in 9 months. Always relaxing, serene, massage is always is good and breakfast is yummy. So thankful I will always return to my slice of heaven. , March 2015

Your cabin is so beautiful and peaceful. It was the perfect honeymoon getaway for us. The hot tub was great and relaxing and your dogs were sweet and playful. This cabin was exactly what we wanted and needed. We hope to come back someday. , December 2014
