Amazing Private Hideaway!
We loved our stay at the Lightning Bug! Will definitely return for a little quiet getaway. Beautiful, peaceful, very private spot with cool, clear river access a short little walk from the cabin. Our dogs were in heaven roaming the property and swimming in the creek. The cabin is so cozy, plenty of nice amenities, don't need to pack much! Rob was so kind and responded so quickly to our questions. A little history about the town and his farm and a ride around some of the property in his side by side were an added bonus! Looking forward to returning :)

We accidentally showed up a day early but Rob said it was no problem. Rob was extremely nice and accommodating. I loved that Rob shared the land and towns history with us and encouraged us to explore the property. The stay was quiet and exactly what we needed. My favorite was definitely the cows checking up on us on the mornings. We met Cathy while out for dinner and she is very kind as well. We would 10/10 recommend.

We absolutely loved our time at the lightning bug hideaway! The cabin was charming, clean, and very private. Rob ensured we had everything we needed, had great communication with us, and was really such a pleasure to talk to! The cave on the land is a short hike away from the cabin and further up the hill is an awesome mushroom rock to check out! The creek had clear waters and was so fun to walk in and look at all of the fossils. It was lovely to have a propane fire pit where we didn’t have to go to bed smelling like smoke or worry about gathering wood. We also loved having a fence around the cabin where our dog could run around off leash. We will definitely be back again and thanks to Rob for setting us up so nicely!

Hog creek camp 1, 2, and 3
Land was beautiful, creek was flowing. A lot of flying bugs (tall grass, near water) but we managed. They had recently brushogged immediate area though. Saw some cool water birds in the morning flying over and fishing in the creek. Thank you!

Relaxing spot by the creek
Perfect spot to post up for the evening and relax! Rob was really friendly - met us at the front gate and showed us to the site. He even had some wood gathered for us to make a fire with. Plenty of choices for where to pitch your tent and a modest fire pit. Creek is clear and cool. Overall a great spot!
