The two double bedrooms are located upstairs. Note that you must pass through one annex bedroom to get to the other primary bedroom. Both have their own doors for privacy. We also have a twin day bed and a full futon downstairs for additional sleeping. Bedrooms are rustic but tastefully decorated for that real wood cabin feel.

Guests will love the natural light that streams through the huge picture windows, wooden interiors, fully-stocked kitchen, pretty dining area, and comfortable living room with a large sofa, natural wood table, books and games galore, and Smart TV with Hulu, Netflix, and other apps.
Skilled fire tenders are welcome to use the fire ring and wood stove. Please be very careful if you decide to light a fire!

Open your door for direct access to the 5-acre woodland literally on your doorstep! Take an early morning stroll or breathe in the fresh air with a coffee on the covered wooden deck. Enjoy the great outdoors on the patio at night with patio lights to see the stars.
Rest and relax at home or head out into the woods. Enjoy the tranquil sound of birdsong and try to spot some of the native wildlife as you wonder at the simplicities of nature.
