    Our stay at the Purple Squirrel was great, Nancy was very welcoming and responsive. She came out to greet us quickly upon arrival and made us feel quite comfortable. She took our bags into a ranger and gave us a tour around her property which has plenty of woods and remnants of an abandoned coal mine. There was a hose for water which was cold and clean and a camper that we were allowed to use for no extra charge. Overall, I loved this place and definitely plan to return.

    We had a wonderful one-night stay at Purple Squirrel Forest. Nancy and Bill were gracious and helpful hosts. This site has some budding magic to it.
