This old riverside cabin offers plenty of dust, dirt, cobwebs, critters, squeaky floorboards and a crappy shower ...If you're still reading, it also offers cozy charm, sensational sunsets, majestic wildlife, and serene tranquillity. Built in 1907, this riverside cabin borders thousands of acres of parkland. If interested, tell me about your group and type of getaway you're looking for. NOTE: Listed prices are for first 2 guests - additional charge thereafter. Watercraft available for rent. -Tim

If you're looking to get away from it all without having to go THAT far from civilization, this is the spot for you. I stayed at the cabin for a short writing retreat by myself and really got to relax and be away from my phone and email for a few days. The cabin is beautiful and …
