We absolutely loved it here!! It was very private and the campsite was very nice. I highly enjoyed backwoods camping by the creek here. We felt so very comfortable staying here and will be back!!

Appreciate your braving our backwoods. Sorry we missed you on checkout, we were cleaning cabins. Will get your headlamp in the mail as soon as we can.

If you are looking for pure, clean countryside that has been preserved for the true nature goers, Summer Shoals is the place to go. Jim and Lora are such humble people and they just make you feel so welcome. Jim took time out of his day to take us around the property. Beautiful!
I love the way that Lora decorated the trails to primitive camping, the bath house, and the cabins. She is very talented. Wading in the waters of the Cumberland River was rejuvenating. We saw the Bald Eagle, went fishing, took hikes, and explored the river banks. We didn't want to leave. If reconnecting with your family without electronics is your goal then you need to visit this small slice of heaven.
Jim..Lora..Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and can't wait to see you again.

Really enjoyed the 3 of you. It's nice to have folks visit that hold the same vision for the Lord's creation in their hearts that we have. Please come see us again at any of our riverside tent, riverside cabins or our backwoods sites. In Hotel 6 fashion "we will leave the light on fer ya" or in the case of our primitive cabins, we won't leave the light on cause there isn't one. But if we had one it would be on.
