Ernie and Mindy’s cabin was great! It’s quiet and in a scenic location, perfect for getting away from the city. We will be back again!

If you are looking to get away and disconnect, visit here! Beautiful surroundings – within minutes of sitting on the front porch, I started to find myself again. Peaceful surroundings, impeccable attention to details. Mindy and Ernie did everything to make our stay the best.

You will not be disappointed! If you are debating between cabin destinations, pick Ernie and Mindy’s place. It is spotless and as far as amenities, you couldn’t ask for more. Ernie and Mindy have hearts of gold and they will happily do anything they can to help you should you need it (like we did when our one year old locked us out of the cabin). We will definitely be coming back here!

This little cabin in the woods is the perfect getaway. The birds, the fireflies, the porch swing- everything to help you escape. We wandered the grounds picking wildflowers and sat on a bench by the pond watching dragonflies hover and dive. We also hosted our tiny elopement there and got some truly beautiful photos. I highly recommend this spot for an Iowa summer vacation. Just bring bug spray. And not the natural kind.

Great cozy place to go. Will absolutely be back. It is extremely comfortable and amazingly quiet. Best place I’ve been to unwind and relax.

What a perfect getaway! The cabin was so clean, well appointed and location is perfect. So many great outside locations to relax, hike, cook and play. We loved every minute of our stay.

This cabin is so adorable! Super clean! Had so many extras. Everything I could have thought of needing was in this cabin. Location was super nice and the hosts were so great. I have stayed in many Airbnb and this one is by far my favorite. Will be returning for sure!

This is such a nice cabin! Our family of 6 loved it so much. There is a lovely screen porch and a great fire pit. The beds were super comfy and we appreciated coffee and fixings for the morning, and the basket of snacks! We would definitely stay here again.

This cabin stay is worth the money. Definitely the nicest cabin I’ve been in—new, clean, nice lighting and a jacuzzi in the loft. My husband and I stayed here after our wedding in June. The land around the cabin is magical – especially at night. The night sky is very clear with lots of stars and a prairie field full of fireflies, and the sound of owls, frogs and crickets. Perfect for a couple who enjoys nature. There was a state park about 20 minutes away and we went kayaking on the lake and got lunch in Grinnell. Would love to stay there again!

Their place is gorgeous! Perfect little spot for a family getaway or couples retreat.

I went to the little cabin for a mini-retreat, and I couldn't be more pleased! I enjoyed exploring the trails, peaceful cups of coffee and birdwatching in the rocking chairs on the front porch, reflection and yoga in the cozy, warm space. It was so quiet and comfortable, from the bed to the whirlpool tub to the many other thoughtful touches. Mindy was a delight to communicate with and meet! I will definitely be back!

An absolute must for couples and families looking for relaxation and restoration! Timberhaven offers quaint, quiet and comfortable amenities in a wonderfully remote setting that is also just minutes from town. The best of both worlds!
Mark Mark wrote on May 16, 2020:
This cabin was just what we needed. It is a fabulous getaway – especially if you’re going to unplug from the rest of the world and relax. Thank you so much, Ernie and Mindy, for having such beautiful cabins in such a great location! We are looking forward to staying in one of your cabins again sometime soon. To everyone else who has a chance to go to this cabin, do so. It’s well worth every penny and once you leave there you will feel refreshed and relaxed.

This is a perfect place to get away. It’s quite, beautiful, with everything you need and then some. Perfectly clean and very cozy. Spacious enough but still simple. Love the simplicity! I don’t think I will want to book anywhere else!! My new favorite place. Don’t hesitate…. this is what your looking for if you would like a quiet beautiful place to get away and enjoy the outdoors. ❤️

Amazing… Yes!! Coffee, yum! Beauty and quiet, absolutely! Clean and cozy, for sure! The bathroom was so cool, the bed so comfy, the hikes so beautiful, the little touches, wonderful, the snacks, the communication, the hospitality, it was all phenomenal. One of the best places for a retreat, honeymoon or getaway.

Another beautiful stay at Timberhaven Getaways in their Little Cabin in the Woods! This was our fourth visit, and every time we stay I say, “Can’t we just live here?” Peaceful setting, thoughtful hosts, comfy bed. Colorful variety of birds at the feeder. Wildlife sounds in the distance as we sat around the fire at night. We’ve already booked our next visit!

We had our grandkid retreat with 6 grandkids at the big cabin. Everything was perfect!!! The cabin was neat and clean, there was plenty of space inside and outside for all types of games. The view was amazing! There are several things to do in Newton for all ages. The Adkison’s are great people.

Thank you for having such a breath-taking place for folks to get away! We had a very fun and relaxing time – our only regret is that we didn't stay an extra night or two longer. 🙂
We will be back, and with more of our family. Our daughter is 3 and enjoys wildlife immensely, so we can't wait to take her on some little adventures.
We'll be back!

We’ve stayed here twice already with our family of 6, and we’re already planning our next time! When we told our kids that we were almost to the cabin, our 3 year old exclaimed, “special family time, here we come!” That sums it up! We enjoy the time to unplug, and spend quality time together. The cabin is well kept, stocked with what we need, and the location is perfect! We will be back many more times!

"We would like to thank you for letting us stay in your cabin! Must say this was the best weekend we have had in a while. 😊 Took a walk on one of the trails that went to your pond and decided that the next time we come we will bring our fishing poles! Grilled out a few times and played some games. This weekend was just wonderful. Till the next time…"
