Just what we needed.... A quiet ...peaceful...cozy...comfortable...and clean place we could go to relax... Enjoy and rest with our family. The children loved the walk to the lake....the open space to run at night and the peaceful location where it is located. We had a great time. Thank you!

Happy happy happy!! Great Birthday Getaway!

We enjoyed our stay for my hubby's birthday! Everything went very smoothly and was very relaxing. Everything we needed was there and clean. Homeowner came by and took hubby down to the dock and showed us where to dock the boat. They were friendly and very helpful. We are already planning on coming back for our next getaway!

My sisters and I had a nice quiet stay at the cabin and found it to be a very peaceful area, and the cabin was spacious enough for each of us to have our own bedrooms. Pretty farm country and not far from a few Amish stores - Yummy goodies!!! Thanks Laurie and Bart

Clean, comfortable, fun. Short walk to lake. Great fishing from shore. Caught perch, sunfish, catfish. Beds are more comfortable than ours, lol. Finicky 6 year old daughter fell asleep in minutes. Whole family slept great. Awesome getaway! Would recommend to everyone. A work friend recommended this home, and I couldn't have been more pleased. Thanks Must family.

My wife and I, along with our two children, spent three nights in this lovely cottage while visiting family in the area. The cottage had more than enough room for the four of us, and had everything we needed to have an enjoyable stay. We will definitely stay here on future visits and will recommend it to other family members when they make their own trips.

We stayed at this house for a girls weekend to celebrate my little sister getting married. We had a wonderful time! We found everything we needed at the house and everyone had a comfortable space to sleep. The back patio was awesome at night and so was the fire pit. We even held a corn hole tournament which was a blast! There are woods around which makes it feel pretty private. A few (minor) cons - the walk to the water was a little longer than we had thought and there was not really a place to swim. There was a dock with boats but no ladder on the dock for us to get back on and it felt a little dangerous with the boats coming in and out. However - we just drove over to the beach and still had a great time! We did also run out of toilet paper the second day and had to run to the store. I guess that's what happens when you have a house full of women! Overall, we had a great time. The owners were great and responded to all questions quickly :)
Very happy to hear you and your girlfriends had a great time! There is another set of boat docks accessible from the property. These docks have a ladder attached as well. Sorry we failed to point this out. There is also an area nearby where you could enter the lake to swim or float on a raft. Again, we wish we would have pointed out each of these areas.

I was raised and went to school in Hillsboro, Ohio. I had a class reunion to attend and needed a place to stay. Being familiar with the Rocky Fork Lake area I knew about where this house was located. We enjoyed our stay and the house was very nice.
June 29, 2014
The house was clean and comfortable, private, and reasonably priced. We had a great time on the trails around the lake, hiking at the local 7 Caves Park, and area lakes swimming and fishing. Very nice rental.

We stayed for a long week end and everything was great!!!

This was our first visit to this lake. Everything was perfect! Better than we had expected, the photos didn't do justice! Thank you....We'll be back.
Nice place, had a great time

Six of us came down for a hunting trip and the cottage was more than enough room. Very nice place and the neighbors were very nice.

Enjoyed breakfast in the sunroom
October 14, 2013
We had a great time; we particularly enjoyed having breakfast in the sunroom/porch. We appreciated the large dining table - plenty of space. The cottage was clean and the owner and property manager were great to work with and responsive.
August 26, 2013
4 adults, 3 small children, 1 infant stayed comfortably for 2 nights. Cottage was nice and had a great big yard with nice trails behind to explore. Drive to beach/marina is about 5-10 minutes. We wanted to rent a pontoon but there were none available by the time we got to the marina so get there early! Big firepit, plenty of tables to sit and eat dinner, master bedroom was quite large. Drove to Amish country the first day and have to say the bakery was amazing!
friendly, understanding owners
June 4, 2013
We spent the long memorial day weekend. Comfortable accommodations. We, unfortunately, dented the garage door with the boat when backing into the driveway. The owner was very understanding and very reasonable about this and has been working to get this repaired in the least costly manner possible, which was appreciated. Depending on what/how you like to cook, you might find the kitchen to be somewhat understocked. For example, we are big wine drinkers and there were no wine glasses.
Thanks for your review. We were not aware that there were not wine glasses in the cabinets. We originally stocked the cabinets with 6 glasses and have not realized they are no longed there as the property manager has not made mention of this. We will fix this soon and appreciate you pointing this out.
Incredible Time (even with wknd full of rain)
May 20, 2013
House was incredible! We planned a golf trip and it turned into cards, bonfires and laughs. There was plenty of room, the house was clean and the owners were incredibly helpful and nice. Everyone had a great time and we are now trying to plan a return visit to this rental for an actual golf trip for the fall. Thanks so much. Justin

The cottage was really nice. The property was clean and well stocked with towels, blankets, pillows and even kitchen spices. The only two bad things I have to say is that the grill is very old and only half of it would work and it was very rusty (some parts of the grill were rusted through) and poorly maintained. The other is that they cut the grass during our party and right before it rained which made it almost impossible for us to clean up after ourselves because the second we walked out to the car and came back in there was nothing but grass everywhere.
Amy, Thanks for your valuable feedback! The Weber Grill was inadvertently left outside all winter and took a beating. We are in the process of replacing with a brand new grill. I have spoken with the folks in charge of cutting the grass. They were supposed to cut the grass on Thursday but got behind schedule due to all the rainfall. They have been instructed to hold off next time. We do apologize and will discount your next stay.
Enjoyed our stay

Great location for the areas' many recreational opportunities such as wildflower hiking at the Arc of Appalachia & Fort Hill and kayaking that our group did. The house offers comfortable accommodations for relaxing also. Would definitely recommend staying here.

This was a very relaxing home.I felt it had everything we needed,Do not hesitate if you are thinking about coming to this beautiful area.Once you are inside there is total silence.The wifi works great since I had to do some work and the country setting was all that it was built up to be.
Wonderful Rocky Fork Escape
August 21, 2012
The cottage was perfect - we had a group of 5 - 2 adults and 3 teenagers. We had plenty of room, and good access to the lake. We especially enjoyed the enclosed porch and fire pit. The property management was outstanding. The gentleman located a dock space for us and brought over tools for us to use when our boat broke down! Would highly recommend this cottage and the folks managing it.
Awesome Family Retreat!
August 14, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rocky Fork Lake. The house was very nicely furnished and roomy. We have 4 children and there was plenty of room to roam in the spacious back yard. It was very close to the lake and boat rentals. Bart and Randy were very nice and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this house to friends and relatives.
July 10, 2012
Our stay at the Mountainview cottage was great. The house is much more spacious than it appears in the photos and easily accommodated our group of six people with plenty of room to spare. Bart was excellent to work with and was quick to grant our request to check-in early. The boat dock is a short walk down the road and down the hill to shore - - but it beats paying to dock at the marina or pulling the boat out every evening. The house was clean, well maintained and stocked with towels, linens and a full kitchen . The yard is very private, though we weren’t able to spend much time out there because of the record heat, but the air conditioning works GREAT. No complaints!

Wonderful Cottage on the Lake
June 1, 2012
My family & I had a wonderful time at this cottage. The cottage was very clean & spacious. The path down to the lake through the woods is so pretty & we enjoyed sitting around the fire pit in the backyard. This was a nice place for a little rest & relaxation. Bart was wonderful to work with & very accomodating. We look forward to visiting again.
Very Peaceful Getaway
October 11, 2011
Let me begin by saying that working with Bart was a pleasure. Throughout the rental process communication was excellent and the pricing was very reasonable. The house was exactly as described and we really needed nothing but food. Bring towels and sheets if using your own makes you comfortable, but everything was provided and clean. The location is very quiet and easily accessible. Getting to the lake is within walking distance but we found it much better to drive the short distance to one of the many lakefront areas. To be completely fair to those who read these reviews, as we did, the house could have used a dehumidifier. There was a pronounced moisture odor and feel upon our arrival. Turning on the air conditioner for the duration of our stay definitely helped alleviate the issue. In short we were comfortable, relaxed, felt safe and would definitely stay here again.
Because this property was booked (6984 Mtn View Drive) Zeldon stayed at a second property we own on the street to accomodate him. Because we closed this house up in September and and did not have a chance to open it up before his stay in mid-October, there was a moisture odor. This odor goes away once you open the house up. This house sits down a hill and in the woods which lends to this issue when we close it up for the season. We have not experienced any moisture issues at 6984 Mountain View Drive.

Let us get in early! Nice and clean! Everything was perfect! We will be back next year I hope!

"I loved it! The description is exactly how it is. It is very very clean, and well maintained! Bart was easily willing to accomidate to our needs.A very nice guy.It is private. There is neighbors but everyone is so nice, and quite. We brought extra things, not knowing if there would be enough. Not once did we have to use the things we brought! All you need is food, everything else is provided! I would go back there any day. There is so much to do around the lake. Swimming is only a few miles up the road, there is hiking everywhere along with inside the woods behind the house. If your an outside person, this is for you. There is a sun room that is amazing! so peaceful. I rate it A++++ "
Weekend getaway from the city.
May 24, 2011
I must say this was a wonderful weekend retreat, Bart the owner was just as accommodating as he could be, if you needed anything extra he would go the extra mile. The house well what more can I say it was just as described and very clean. A+ Thanks Bart. P.S. The lake was beautiful and We caught more Crappie than we ever had Great
