We had a great, relaxing week!  Thank you very much, Elayne, for sharing your amazing property with others and for your hospitality in being a wonderful host!

This was our 3rd year spending time here and we loved every day.  We look forward to seeing you again next year!

 This was the first fishing trip my brothers and I have had with our father in 20 years!  We used to go fishing every weekend as kids.  So much fun!  Thank you for sharing this lovely cabin!

 Dear Elayne,  Me and my mom and dad had so much fun here and we hope to come back soon.  The boats were my favorite.  I have one suggestion, put a lock on the bathroom please (there is one!)  I loved fishing even though we didn't catch that much we still had an awesome time and we hope you have a wonderful day.

Elayne - Thank you for the bread!  It was lovely with coffee and the birds in the morning.  We came down (over) from Philadelphia to celebrate a 50th birthday and relax.  We spent the first few days with friends  and enjoyed the week by ourselves.  Fred enjoyed the fishing on the lake, the boat was great.  The porch was wonderful to sit on all day, reading and listening to music.  You have a special property!  We really enjoyed our stay!

Elayne, thank you for the sumptuous bread.  We had a great relaxing time in this beautiful cain.  I could live in one like this - so comforting.  We felt at home here and the enjoyment of watching the birds and squirrels and chipmunks was a lot of fun.  Those two hummingbirds are characters - funny.  The fishing was great, enjoyed our meals - yummy.  Hope to be able to come back again.  God's blessings.

 Thank you for sharing this beautiful property!  The homemade bread and fresh picked strawberries were delicious and such a sweet touch!  We caught some yummy blue gill and enjoyed all the wildlife.  Our little girls loved our vacation, time with family and nature!  God bless!!

 Elayne, Thank you so much for sharing this cabin with us (It's heavenly)!  We have had so much fun, sitting back relaxing, listening to the birds chirping and the bunnies hopping in the woods.  Your cabin is heavenly and we are going to make this a tradition to come back ever year!!  God bless you and keep you always.  BTW your bread is amazing!!!

 What a peaceful get-away!  A gem hidden in the woods on a tranquil lake.  We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck, swinging and hearing the beautiful chimes and chirps of the birds.  We were delighted by the numerous birds and variety of birds.  Thank you for letting us (encouraging us) to feed the birds.

We also enjoyed fishing on the lake, watching the geese and spying some turtles.

Thank you for the opportunity to experience this little slice of heaven along with a tasty loaf of bread!

 A relaxing get away after the holiday!  Felt great to slow down and recharge!  To future guests - be on the lookout for the wild turkeys!  We could tell they were wild because they all had on the party hats for the New Year!  Ha!  Seriously, we saw 37 in one flock go through the from yard - amazing!

Elayne, as always, you were a super host - thank you for everything - especially your visit - enjoyed it so much.

 We had no idea this place existed until our sons rented it for us as a gift.  We were pleasantly surprised to find such a beautiful setting and great accommodations.  What fun - staying in a real log cabin!  Loved being on the lake and catching some really nice bass.  We've rented a lot of cabins over the years and never felt this kind of hospitality--fresh baked bread and all.  Thank you.

 Elayne, we had another wonderful time.  Fishing was great.  It was fabulous seeing the deer playing by the lake, and the mamma chasing off that bobcat!!  Hope to see you soon.

 Elayne, our 6th consecutive trip to the cabin was marvelous.  Everything is always so nice.  God willing we shall return for another year.  Thank you so much for providing us with this great experience.

 Elayne, this cabin is so nice and peaceful.  We came last year for the 1st time to celebrate our dating anniversary.  We liked the place so much, we decided to come back this year again to celebrate.  This place is a wonderful place to spend time together, without the normal day-to-day parts of life that distract you from what is truly important.  This place is already a special place; however, it will always remain the most special place for us as on our trip this time, my best friend proposed to me out in the boat on the lake.  Of course, I said "yes".  So next time we come back it will be as husband and wife.  It may sound cheesy but this place is magical in its own way.  Thank you very much for letting us share this wonderful place with you.  We look forward to seeing you again next year!

 I came here solo since wife and kids had a school trip.  This was exactly what I needed to get away from the craziness of work.  I caught lots of fish (red ear, bass and bluegill).  They seemed to really hit on the Berkley Gulp minnows.  I had such a relaxing stay.  Watched a lot of birds.  Binoculars highly suggested!  I relaxed in the hammock.  Even had a few campfires.  

The cabin is great and Elayne's bread was fantastic (thank you!!).  This was the perfect getaway.  I look forward to bringing the rest of the family this fall.

P.S.  Get up early and out on the lake at least once.  The fog over the water and peace is worth it!



 We had a great time at the cabin!  The fresh bread was awesome.  We also enjoyed fishing - caught some bass and blue gill - some of the biggest blue gill we ever caught.  It was a nice cozy retreat for our anniversary.  We will hopefully be back again some day.  Thank you!

 It rained A LOT!!!  So didn't do as much fishing as we would have liked.  The cabin is nice and really clean which was much appreciated!  Spent a lot of time peacefully on the porch bird watching.  We saw:  red bellied woodpeckers, downy woodpeckers, cardinals, yellow goldfinches, nuthatches, purple finch or housse finch, tufted titmouse, mourning doves, sparrows, of course, tons of hummingbirds!  I think I saw a Carolina chickadee and a wood thrush and brown headed cowbird.  Thank you for a much needed getaway!

 I spent 10 years of my life on this property from 1949 to 1959.  It is so different now and for the better.  Really is nice.  Thanks for the homemade bread, it is great.  Enjoyed the wildlife and the front porch even though  couldn't get around much as I turned 80 on my visit.  Very nice place to relax and enjoy the sounds of nature.  Thanks for the loaf of bread.

 Dear Elayne, we wanted to thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us.  Thad loved being able to fish anytime he wanted on a private lake.  Thad and I spent time reconnecting to God in this beautiful nature setting.  We loved our daily games of Scrabble and Bible study.  It was great to watch the wild turkeys, geese, hummingbirds and even the little salamander that took a trip across the porch!  Thanks again and God bless.

 We brought our two grandchildren (ages 3 & 9) to have quality time and do some serious fishing!  The 9 year old is consumed with fishing at an early age.  I also have a vacation rental in the area and appreciated Elayne and all the work she put in this cabin and property for others!  Impressed with decor selection like Indian artifacts and the copper pieces!  Kids were a challenge but we have enjoyed our "down" time here.  Caught a few bass, saw the geese (babies too).  Lake was full of bass, hit good on 3" artificial minnow.

These are our grandson Max's comments:

My stay was great!  I enjoyed the thought that I am just in the middle of nature.  If you want to go fishing, go to the dam.  There are lots of bass, red ear and blue gill.  I also love watching the birds eat.


 It was so nice to get away for a few days and detach from all the craziness.  The peaceful surroundings were just what we needed to unwind.  We enjoyed the fishing, paddle boating, being serenaded by the birds and cicadas, and the wonderful homemade bread.  Thank you!

 It was a nice weekend.  We were able to catch some fish which my husband really enjoyed, since it's been a while since he's been able to do that.  Also enjoyed the homemade bread that was left for us.  Thank you Elayne for that.  If you want to go out for dinner and like German cuisine we would highly recommend the German Cafe in French Lick.

 Thank you for your thoughtfulness, and supplying us with your homemade bread.  You made us feel right at home in this cabin.  We enjoyed the porch swing and marshmallows at the fire.  The lake was beautiful. Fishing was enjoyable.

 Thank you Elayne for sharing this wonderful cabin with us.  We were looking for a place to relax and reconnect and definitely found that here!  And homemade bread - truly the icing on the cake - loved it!

 Good afternoon Elayne.  Just a quick note to thank you so much for your gracious hospitality in sharing the beauty, peace and tranquility of Scott's Timberline Lake Cabin!

We needed to leave early Saturday morning to return home for our granddaughter's classical guitar recital, and forgot to sign the guestbook before we left.  So we didn't want time to pass without offering our gratitude for the sights and sound of a very special place, for giving good solid directions to the grocery store (!), and for the delicious loaf of rye bread.  That was a special treat and a tasty "go-with" for the soups and stew we had for dinner!

On Thursday we took the scenic route to the Overlook Restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed the beauty surrounding us at every turn.  We had planned to do some walking at the cabin and making the trip to Paoli you described.  Unfortunately, Donna was not feeling well while we were at the cabin.  She was sick on our trip up from Grand Rivers and didn't start to perk up again until Friday night.  We were disappointed not to be able to "get out" a little bit more, but there is a calm serenity about sitting on the front porch and just relaxing.  And so we did! After being sheltered for over a year, and literally not getting out or seeing anyone except what we could see from the front widows of our house, we can't imagine selecting a more inviting destination than Scotts Timberline Lake!

We hope to return for another visit sometime in the future.  In the meantime, thank you again for all of the hard work it takes to make such a special place a reality for so many.  Have a great summer and fall season!  Best regards and may God bless you,

                                                                     Phil and Donna Norman

                                                                          4-14 to 4-17-21

 Had a good Halloween weekend. Nice to get away again.  Thanks.

This is the best birthday in my short life so far.  The bread was amazing, and the fishing was excellent.  We caught many fish and put them back.  Elayne is a great person and made cookies that were so tasty.  I recommend coming in the fall.  (Also I recommend the fishing.) Like I said, best birthday ever!

This mini vacation was so relaxing and I really enjoyed it.  My family and I played some board games which we haven't done in a while.  I caught one fish which is one more than I expected to get.  The trees were beautiful with their little bits of orange and yellow and I really hope we can come here again.

If you read the comments above, you can see that my almost teenagers had a blast!  We enjoyed our stay here and we are thinking about returning next year and start making this a family tradition.  Thank you Elayne for the amazing bread and cookies.  We had a fantastic time together.

 What a wonderful place!  This was the most relaxing short get-away.  We love it here.  Tyler and his dad has so much fun fishing and spending time out on the boat together.  Tyler especially loved the paddle boat.  We will definitely be back.  Thank you for the bread.  Love,

 What a great place!  We absolutely loved our stay here.  The cabin is amazing, the fishing was top notch and the bread, delicious!  Elayne is such a great host, and we will be returning next fall for the stunning views.  Thank you so much.

 What a lovely and homey getaway!  We tried out our fishing poles and spent time on the porch swing with the birds and squirrels nearby.  The leaves are beautiful too!  Of course we enjoyed the bread and meeting you!  See you again!

Who says you have to spend hours traveling in order to have a vacation?!!  Only 45 minutes from home and still a world away!  Thank you for sharing your part of God's beautiful world!  We hope to visit again.
