Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The 13'X12' cabin is situated on a 20-acre homestead surrounded by thousands of acres of farmland and forest. The cabin is more immediately surrounded by numerous gardens, orchard, and pastures for sheep and goats, as well as quaint out-buildings original to the farm.

The space
The cabin is well insulated and includes a small wood stove for heat; dry firewood is provided. East and west decks allow for star-gazing at night or reading and game playing by day. An unheated outhouse is 30 feet away. 2 1/2 gallons of fresh drinking water is provided in the cabin. More is available upon request. There are no showering facilities, however, we will provide a basin of warm water upon request. The cabin does have electricity - 2 lights and 4 outlets. We provide an electric hot plate suitable for heating soup, boiling water, etc. There is an outside light on the west deck to help you see your way to the outhouse and your vehicle. Tour of gardens are available by request.

Guest access
Parking is 200 feet away. The cabin is accessed by a path through the entry gardens. Guests may enjoy the garden staircase and wander the orchard.

Other things to note
If guests expect to spend a lot of time outside and on the homestead, they should probably like, or at least tolerate, a people-loving dog who will likely welcome them as family.
The cabin does not have a lock, so no key is involved at check-in. Both doors are able to be secured from the inside.
