Small rustic cabin (NO ELECTRICITY, RUNNING WATER, TV or Wifi!) In the forest by a pond & stream, & steps from the Chwk River at the base of a mountain in the Tamihi Rec. Area. Endless trails, 4x4 roads & world class fishing! Hike, bring a horse, ATV, mtn bike, kayak or go rafting! Scroll down & click on the red "+ More" to READ ENTIRE AD BEFORE BOOKING! Check our other ads under # 1 or #3 "Fish/Bring Horses/ATV/Kayak" for availability or our B&B under "Fish/ATV/Hike/Kayak on Our Farm!!"
These are sleeping cabins ***DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE FISHERMEN & HUNTERS!!! VERY BASIC back to nature! (Think wooden tent with a wood stove, couch, a small table, 2 or 3 chairs & beds only!) No pots, pans, dishware or utensils. The furniture is mismatched & not meant to be featured in Better Homes & Gardens! There is some staining on patio chairs & tables etc, & some damage & stains on the lino, but the beds & futons are clean! (This is why we don't have a problem with people bringing their pets!) They are swept & cleaned after each guest leaves, but these are NOT like sterile city motel rooms! They are NOT SUITABLE FOR WHINERS or most Yuppies! There has been wax dripped on the lino many times which has been scraped off, but they still feel waxy in places! Mice & other rodents & insects live outside, & they may occasionally poop on the deck & there may be cobwebs out there as well. It is swept off regularly, but they return at night! When people leave the door open, mice can get in & we can't prevent that! Please DO NOT BOOK if this is upsetting to you!!! If you are looking for something more like a hotel room, we have a large ensuite bedroom in our home also listed on Airbnb, which is spotlessly clean & may be more suitable! The cabins have a wood stove for heat, (you supply wood) and an outhouse toilet nearby. We can supply an outdoor solar shower that you can fill from the river or waterfall, but there is NO RUNNING WATER! NO INTERNET! NO TV! NO ELECTRICITY!! You supply your own sleeping bags, cooking supplies & lantern(s), firewood is available for purchase at many places along the way. (Some camping supplies available for rent) These are suitable for someone that wants to de-stress & get back to nature. We have portable 4' fencing panels to make an enclosure for those that would like to bring their horses. (extra charge would apply) QUIET, well mannered pets that DON"T GO ON THE FURNITURE are possible (but must be leashed if around the farm animals) We had someone complain that they couldn't swim in the lake, nowhere in the ad does it say you can! (The bottom is quite muddy) She also said it was "more like a swamp". In late summer, the various streams & little waterfalls that empty into the lake almost dry up. Because of that the water level drops significantly. The rains start everything flowing again. People sometimes swim in the (COLD) river (about 2 or 3 minute walk) off our beach in the summer! The same person complained about no trails nearby which was ridiculous as the trail passes directly through our property (about 1/4 block away from the cabins & have many other trails going off of that as well)
Our acreage is on 2 levels, our house is up on the 2nd level, guests will have access to the lower level. You are welcome to go to our beach or anywhere along the river & explore the property!
Interaction with guests
We live on the property (a few minutes up the mountain) & are available most of the time, especially by phone, email or text msg! If you can't reach us, just come up the road to the main house. We are more than happy to answer questions & help you with directions & advice on what to see!
Other things to note
We have some camping supplies available for rent here or bring your own! (ie; bedding, lanterns, pots & pans, camp stove etc) Note: All candles must be enclosed in a container so they can't drip! (Too much wax was being dripped on the floors!) Guests coming for the day are charged $15. (per car) & overnight tents $20. & RV's $25. No parties (without prior written permission) & no smoking inside the cabins!
CANDLES MUST BE ENCLOSED IN A CONTAINER SO THAT THEY CAN’T DRIP ANY WAX!!!
Please ensure that you are in the correct cabin! -Do not go into other cabins that you have not booked!
CAREFUL smoking is allowed outside only!
Only QUIET, well-mannered pets that don't go on the furniture!!
Quiet time is 9 pm - 9 am around the campground or cabins.
NO PARTIES!!! Events are possible at our picnic area IF APPROVED!! PLEASE CHECK WITH US IN ADVANCE!
Use the outhouse only! Anyone leaving garbage or used toilet paper around will be subject to a $25. cleanup charge!
Do not leave food out - it attracts the bears! If you want your cabin windows open - lock it in your car (with the windows up)
Remove your garbage! You may leave compost or recyclables (in separate bags) If leaving compost - shut the cabin windows or the bears will damage the screens trying to get in!
Bring bells or make a little noise (sing etc) when going out especially at night. (A light also helps) The bears & other wildlife do not want to see you & you won’t see them if they hear or see you coming!
From Mar 1 - May 31, 2018 the minimum stay is 1 night.
