About Phil Skyrm

'The sweetness of doing nothing', is my desire for everyone who wants to get away. We are taught many things but learning to relax generally isn't one of them. I love seeing people relax and enjoy themselves. When people stay with us they tell me a couple nights feels like a week of relaxation. I look forward to talking with you and helping you plan your getaway. Thx, Phil

Phil Skyrm purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Phil Skyrm chose Frenchburg

A local told me when I purchased this cabin 'It was the best kept secret at Cave Run Lake'. My family has enjoyed the beauty of the forest and the seclusion. Time seems to slow down when you view the 2 private acres adjoining the Forest. You notice the squirrels, hummingbirds, turkeys and deer. All you see is an abundance of wildlife and trees. This property has natural beauty and all the amenities you enjoy!

What makes this cabin unique

Surfing the internet on a 400 sq. foot screened in porch in your Amish rocker, glider or porch swing takes your experience to the next level. Taking you picture with 'Bogo', the friendly Bear and gazing at the stars from a hydro-therapy hot tub in a private setting is an experience that you will enjoy. I find many people with a full agenda staying at the cabin, grilling, surfing the internet, hot tubbin, wildlife viewing or enjoying the generous satellite TV. There is something for every age group. Some stay,while others get out and do, then meet in the middle. Choose your own plans and we will send you a welcome packet via e-mail with directions to most everywhere you will want to go so you waste no time on your vacation.

Rustic, convenient, cozy, perfect amenities, so comfortable, easy checkin/check out, beautiful prope

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway for my husband and me....and our 2 pups. The directions were easy to follow, check in was easy, everything as described. Not one issue! Hot tub worked great and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to make a nice dinner for Thanksgiving. Favorite feature besides the hot tub was the enclosed decking so our pups could hang out with us without the stress of keeping track of them in the yard. Such a great place for pets! Hiking and so many great activities were close by. What a perfect vacation. I haven't been able to relax that well inca ling time. We're so sad to leave!

Beautifully maintained, cozy cabin at Cave Run Lake

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a great time. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. Really loved the large, screened back porch. The place is well stocked for cooking and dining. The owner provided detailed information about the cabin and he was accessible for questions. We'll be back.

Wonderful experience with my family in this cozy, charming cabin located in Daniel Boone Forest. The rolling hills embrace this destination with all the fun of being in nature. I would recommend this escape for anyone needing a bit of a getaway and unplugging.

My husband and I loved this cabin! The decor is cozy, there is plenty of room, and the special touches the owners add are amazing! Like the cute little homemade fire starters, the beautiful cuckoo clocks, and "BOGO" the bear statue (which is great for pics)! The screened in back porch is really nice and big! The fire pit outside is great and we love the hot tub! They even have fried pie irons and hot dog roasting utensils for the fire pit. We like fishing Caverun Lake for Muskie and the cabin is just a couple miles from longbow, where we can put our boat in.

We love this cabin so much, we are booking it again this year! It's beautiful, cozy, and relaxing!
