Thank you for making a reservation to stay at Hill Billy Heaven cabin. We take great pride in our cabin since it is also our vacation home. It is furnished with Quality towels, Egyptian cotton linens, and comfortable sofas. An antique Hoosier cabinet serves as the bar with cocktail, wine & champagne glasses. There is a shaker for the martinis.

There is privacy since there are no cabins on either side or behind. Sit on the porch swings on the covered 10’ X 25’ porch with a view of the lake. You can actually see the fish in the water. In the summer, you will be serenaded at night by a chorus of bull frogs. We also have a fire pit by the lake.

You should only have to bring food, coffee, aluminum foil, saran wrap, zip lock bags, and bar soap. We furnish soft soap. The cabin has all cooking utensils, including electric griddle, toaster oven, microwave, coffee pot, dishwashing supplies, etc. There is also a hair dryer in the downstairs bathroom. There are movies, board games, puzzles, and cards for entertainment.

I want to request that, in the kitchen, put things back in the place removed. Let it be organized for the next renters.

We now have wireless hi-speed internet. Security Key: hillbilly
