Beauty beyond description awaits in The Shawnee Forest during the crisp winter months. See magnificent bluffs, waterfalls, slot canyons...the true beauty comes out when the foliage has dropped.

Cozy Nights

Snuggled up in front of cozy Hobbit fireplace

Snuggle up with your special someone next to a toasty gas fireplace with your favorite book or a glass of wine, and shut out the rest of the world. Is there anything more cozy than a fire?

Lose yourself in the dancing flames and just be.
