Huntsman’s Hollow Taking Shape

This weekend the last of the new cabins arrived, and the Huntsman’s Hollow is really beginning to come together.

In fact the Trapper’s Cabin welcomed its first guests on Saturday as Jim, Pam and the girls spent the evening. The girls absolutely loved the loft, and turned it into their fort for the weekend. Jim and Pam on the other hand enjoyed the peace and quiet offered by the separate queen bedroom. These features are sure to make the Huntsman’s Hollow a hit with our many family guests!

Huntsman's Hollow - Forester's Cabin

The Hollow is starting to take on a shape and personality of it’s own. Here you see the Forester’s Cabin, one of our two creek-side cabins (along with the Fisher’s Cabin). The Forester’s is tucked away in a wooded nook, and enjoys the sound of the babbling creek as a backdrop.

Here the Forester’s Cabin (on the right) is joined by the Fletcher’s and Trapper’s Cabins. Since this picture was taken the Tanner’s Cabin has been placed just to the left of the camera here, and the Fisher’s Cabin borders the creek to the right of the camera.

The five cabins of the Huntsman’s Hollow form a loose circle which overlooks a common central area. The common area will feature a first for Ravenwood Castle – a fire pit! The fire pit will be located roughly where the backhoe is sitting in the picture above, and is certain to provide that extra touch for gatherings of family and friends in the Hollow.

All we have left now is to complete the finishing work around the cabins, decorate them, build the firepit, and bring in the landscapers. While that sounds like a lot of work, the crew has been making amazing progress, and the Hollow should be open for visitors in just a few weeks!
