Some Comments From Our Guests

Dear Mr. & Mrs. King: Simplicity at its best! Thank you kindly for a day in paradise away from the rat-race. My only sorrow is that we must leave. The attention to detail was amaxing. We truly felt we had taken a step back in timne...we so hope we can return. Again, thank you for sharing your lovely cabin wih us. Kindest regards, Dan & Robyn B. Magnolia, OH 12/14/2009.

Chris and Marilyn: Our stay here has been totally enjoyable and a perfect break from city life! Where the cabin stands and the area around it really makes you feel you are "home again" The walk to the pond through the trails and the serenity of all that nature  offers are reasons to love the place and all that nature provides are reasons to love the place and yearn to return. God keeps an eye on us here. Talking with each of you makes us feel like we are family....Loved the coffee cake! Norm & Ann, Louisville, OH 10/6/2009

What a wonderful place! You and your wonderful family should be very proud of this home you built with your own hands! Thank you both for your hospitality. Everythig was delicious! I took the rest of the coffee cake and granola to our son at Mount Union. We hope to be back time and time again. You will be our home away from home while our son attends Mount Union. I can't wait for our children to enjoy this place with us! A refreshing change from Florida! Dave & Kim B. Tampa, FL 9/14/09

Dear Marilyn & Chris,  I had to look up on the calendar to see the date! It has been three days of bliss and serious reflection. We loved all the unexpected things (like) nice big towels, "real pllows" & comfortable bedding. Fishing was successful and the blugills were hungry for worms. Shadow added much to our pleasure. We will see you again and are already looking forward to next time-  probably about the same date in 2010. Steve & Bernadine Z. (WKSU) 4/26/2009.

Dear Marilyn and Chris: What a perfect size cabin for our family! A private place to get away from everything! We never worried abot the kids being too loud, and they loved the loft. We hope you have health, happiness and success. Sincerely, The Heckels 4/7/2009

Dear Chris & Marilyn:

Thank you, thank you, thank you. What a wonderful place to be for a weekend. Honestly, I didn’t want to leave Monday morning. I could have stayed all spring and summer and helped with the pruning and etc without a wimper. I felt so sad when I had to leave. I know your winter was rough, but I would give anything to have been there through it. As you may note, Ohio is drawing me back. Something about Ohio that we don’t have down in Florida. I assure you we’ll be back this fall. I can’t wait!
And don’t forget to keep me in the loop if you decide to sell someday. Visit here.

Thanks again, and oh, by the way, please don’t apologize for the increase in rate. Trust me, it’s worth a whole lot more than you are charging.

Your friend in Bradenton, FL.

"Mr. & Mrs. King: Thank you so much for a great time. I don't know where to start. Victoria Rose loved playing with your grandchildren and taking walks in the woods and playing with the dogs (our son brought his dog along to play with Shadow). It's beautiful here  winter and summer. We'll spread the word about this little piece of heaven on earth to anyone looking for that special place to relax and un-wind. We look forward to another visit in the future." The Richards, Sebring, OH July, 07.

"Dear Chris and Marilyn: We've rented quite a few cabins over the years, but this one will probably be the most memorable. The setting out here is idyllic and Mother Nature served us some nice weather. We hiked all the trails on the property quite a few times and always seemed to see something new each time. Our dog, Calvin, wore out from the exercise! At the same time it feels like we got a lot of rest. We appreciated the coffee cake, granola and the other specialties of the house. No one should miss the great collection of books and videos too! We hope to return during a different season." B&TH, Canton, OH (9/07)

"Chris and Marilyn (& Shadow too): We have truly enjoyed our stay here in your cozy cabin. God sure blessed us with beautiful Ohio weather. Thanks for your hospitality and for giving us a chance to relax away from our busy and hurried lives in Florida. Thank you!" - T&D T., Wesley Chapel, FL (4/29 - 5/4/2006)

"Dear Marilyn & Chris, we don't want to go home! Coming for our sisters' runaway, we found it a comfort to know you were close by. (Note: It is not an uncommon reaction for city folks to feel strange about the silence and darkness here at Glenking.) There was an excellent balance of privacy and availability. The cabin is bealutiful, comfortable and cozy. The homemade touch of coffee cake and muffins was such a treat too! We thoroughly enjoyed cooking outside on the gas grill, taking a walk to the pond and sitting around the fire brazier outside. we hope to come back next year." -Donna G., Indiana;Barb I & Linda B. from Pennsylvania (6/9&10, 2006)

"Awesome Cabin! Who knew such an aswsome place existed so close to home. We thought we would need to go to the Poconos for such charm. I think you could film a western here! We loved it and we will be back for a longer stay! We might even bring our four children next time! We loved the hospitality and the whole experience. Thank you." - J&M T, Canton, OH (3/5/06)

"The cabin is beautiful and so is its location. We very much enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area. It was a wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. We also enjoyed your hospitality and enjoyed meeting Shadow (our very friendly dog). We plan to return here again. I enjoyed hiking the trails down to the pond. And we admire your conservation efforts." (Glenking recycles all cans, plastic and cardboard. We hope you do too.) - Scott & Barbara M. Lakewood, OH 10/30/05

"My wife and I loved our short stay and will look forward to returning. You have a wonderful retreat, and are the best hosts. See you in the Spring." - Carol & Tony V. Carrollton, OH (10/23/05)


We loved your cabin! Thanks for making a friendly place to stay. We enjoyed our family time around the outdoor fireplace. I loved the quiet mornings and coffee on the porch. Thanks again for everything." - J.&C.W, Loveland, CO (7/19/04)

Two women friends brought their mothers down for a pre-holiday weekend and were delighted with the fun they had:


"What a wonderful surprise! Our daughters planned this mothert/daughter Christmas surprise for us, and we had a wonderful time in your lovely cabin. We were blessed by the beauty of God's creation all around us!

Thank you you for your gracious spirits, your amazing coffee cake and granola and sharing the evening with us over pie and coffee!" Sandy B. Clevaland, OH
