The space

This rustic and simple one-room cabin was built around 1902 and was used as a fishing camp. We've taken it out of the deep woods and relocated it where it now overlooks the south side of our 12 acre pond. It is now outfitted with electricity, wood stove and there is ample kitchen and counter space with propane stove and double sink. As of this summer there is running drinking water in the cabin now and a hot water heater! A sweet little outdoor shower out back is for your pleasure as well.

The driveway is 2.6 miles long and is a maintained but sometimes pretty rugged dirt road. Four-wheel drive is not necessary in the summer time.

There is an outhouse about 125 ft or so from the cabin. Shower and flush toilets are available in my house, which is just down the lane (about 200ft away). There is also an outdoor shower behind the cabin now too!

The pond is great for swimming and boating. We have a flat bottomed row boat and canoe for you to use while you're here. An aqua-zip line is available for those with a sense of adventure. Please take note that we allow fly fishing only with barbless hooks.

A small market garden and greenhouse are in operation nearby and there are three other houses on our part of the mountain, all on our property. It is never very busy or loud, but there may, once in a while, be other people enjoying the pond, beach and boa

I do just want to mention that the cabin is deep in the woods up a mountain, and hosts all the wilds have to offer. You may have glimpses of moose and mouse, frogs and flies; by the nature of living here we play host to them all. In the interest of full disclosure, I want you to know so that you are aware that critters are here in our area and sometimes in our living spaces. Just about everyone has embraced them so far but some who have not ventured in the woods before have become surprised to see a mouse which made them uncomfortable to be around. Please be the judge on this for your own creature comfort!

You will need to keep your own fire in the wood stove going to keep the cabin cozy. I can provide instruction if you are unfamiliar. Water is provided in two 4 gal jugs for washing up and will need to be heated on the stove or in the electric kettle. If you need more, you can refil the jugs in my house. Please think of staying here as a rustic, off-the-beaten path retreat. Winter driving experience on icy and snowy roads is a plus as the conditions and weather varies considerably! 4-wheel drive is a must in the winter.

This piece of Earth is a beautiful place for people to relax and play, and that is why I'd like to share this space with you. Come for a weekend, or come for a while.

Great location full of character. About 2 miles off the highway up dirt tracks but that is all part of the log cabin's appeal. Very warm and cosy. Well equipped kitchen although ate out in nearby Bethel. A real away from it all place. Would highly recommend.

Such a beautiful location! Surrounded by trees and the lake out the front is stunning. The cabin is cosy and very private. We really enjoyed staying there, and we even got engaged!! The most romantic getaway! Will be back!

A fantastic experience for us and Anna has thought of everything in the cabin. The lake is Beautiful and the air is so clear and refreshing. We enjoyed the brightness of the stars in evening and the wood burner keeps you cosy at night.

We had the best experience staying at The Cabin. It was so well equipped & lots of thoughtful extras like eggs & coffee were provided which were gorgeous. We chose to have the full rural experience & used the outdoor facilities in preference to the indoor ones that were offered a…

Anna's cabin was perfect for a weekend getaway from the city! Be prepared for a bit of a drive out from the main road, but also be prepared for a breath taking view from outside your cabin window. I only wish we had more time to spend there. We did a bit of walking around the pro…
