Nestled quietly amongst the trees off a back country road between Millersburg and Berlin, you'll find Cricket Hill Cabins. The beautiful countryside and tranquil environment makes for the perfect retreat for you and a loved one.
Martha Kline and her husband purchased the cabins in 2004 and have kept them going strong for eight years now. Three cabins are tucked quietly in the woods with their names reflecting the nature that surrounds them; Apple Blossom Cabin, Grapevine Cabin and Wild Rose Cabin. "Peace and quiet at its finest" reads the slogan, which is exactly what keeps the guests coming back year after year.
"I just love playing house here," said a guest staying in one of the cabins. A home away from home, Cricket Hill has all the amenities necessary to make your stay in Amish Country an enjoyable one. Some of these amenities include: a secluded, private setting in the woods, a loft with a queen size bed that looks out over the beautifully decorated living area, a mini kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave and cooktop, and a full bath and shower. A Jacuzzi for two makes for an intimate get away and each cabin has been newly furnished with a back porch and outdoor hot tub.
"The hot tubs are probably are biggest selling point," said Kline. "The winter months are the most beautiful [at the cabins.] People can sit outdoors in the hot tub and watch the snowfall." Picture yourself enjoying the view with a nice glass of wine and you have set the scene for the perfect romantic getaway.
While Cricket Hill promotes the use of their cabins for couple retreats, Kline says they also entertain a returning group of women who love to get away for a weekend of shopping. All the cabins are one room cabins but have a pull out couch and guests can bring air mattresses if they like, explained Kline. A girls weekend out is just another option available at Cricket Hill.
Along with the beautiful surrounding woods, the cabin grounds houses a small pond complete with a fountain to accomodate the feeling of serenity and peacefulness. Fishing is available to guests on a catch and release policy or the pond can simply be just another venue of relaxation and enjoying the company of a companion.
A small fenced in pasture near the office of the cabins is home to a couple of grazing steers. Kline says the guests enjoy the animals and especially enjoy the company of their small Brittany Spaniel appropriately name Brittany. Kline says, Brittany loves to greet the guests and playfully race them back to their cabins after returning from a long day on the town.
Customizable packages are available to make your stay even more memorable. Choose from relaxing massages for you and a special someone. Arrange for chocolates, wines, cheeses and flowers to be delivered to your cabin. Gift certificates can be purchased in November and December at 10 percent off and make great Christmas presents.
