We rented a two bedroom cabin (Bear Necessities) for three nights in late March. It is a wonderful, quiet location down a private driveway. It has a small, but very adequate kitchen, living room, two bedrooms with comfortable beds, one spa bath tub, one shower (kind of small), a back porch with a 4 person hot tub, and a big back yard with a fire pit. It is a 10 - 20 minute drive to one of the several trail heads in the Daniel Boone National Forest. The kitchen was supplied with almost everything to cook whatever you want, and two charcoal grills outside. The other cabins and lodges also looked very nice. A highly recommended property.




My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay in the bear necessities cabin, and just wanted to say that we loved every minute of it. The cabin was very clean and comfortable, it had everything we needed. We also enjoyed the covered porch with the hot tub, especially since we got a little rain during our stay. We had a wonderful and relaxing getaway and would definitely come back again.

We loved your cabin. It was so beautiful. The views were spectacular and it was so quiet. The Hot top was so relaxing we almost forgot we had to return home. Thanks for a great vacation.

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your cabin. It was absolutely perfect. We loved the secluded area. It was so peaceful. We will definately be repeat customers. THanks!




This review is a little overdue, but we had an amazing time staying in the Bare Necessities cabin last spring! The space was beautiful and quiet, and we enjoyed cooking out over and open fire when it was sunny, and using the wonderful kitchen on the night that it rained. The hot tub was a great way to relax after a long day's hiking. We'll definitely be visiting again!

Just wanted to say that we had a fantastic weekend in the Bear Necessities Cabin! We loved being away from Cincinnati and the cabin quickly became a home away from home. Thanks!

What a wonderful weekend get away! The cabin was perfect for relaxing and enjoying friends. It has a fully stocked kitchen and all the comforts of home. The setting was so serene as we sat in the hot tub and listen to the rain fall! We all decided this is the perfect cabin for our annual girls weekend! Looking forward to next year!




What a relaxing weekend! The Bare Necessities cabin was a perfect getaway spot! It has everything for a very enjoyable, fun, and peaceful experience. We spent most of our time in front of the fireplace (with real wood) or in the hot tub. The ground was covered with snow during our stay so sitting in the hot tub on the back deck and listening to the quiet of the forest made us want to never leave Bare Necessities! I am already looking forward to returning in the spring to be able to explore the huge backyard and to build a big fire in the stone fire pit. The kitchen was fully stocked so we were able to prepare all our meals without any issues. The beds were very comfortable and warm. My family and I canít wait to return for another wonderful experience! Kim




We stayed at Bear Necessities and had an incredible time! The hot tub was so relaxing and the kitchen was probably better furnished than mine at home! Be sure to read the blue book on the coffee table as soon as you arrive - lots of good info in there!!!!
