This charming 1930’s cabin is a great hidaway, an ideal place to relax, unwind, and de-stress. The Artist’s Cottage sets back from the street on a 1/3 of an acre. With pine, oak, and cedar trees offering privacy, yet is easy walking distance to explore Strawberry Creek and the heart of the village.
As you enter the tastefully decorated, comfortable living area, your attention is drawn to the large river rock fireplace ideal for romance, warmth, and atmosphere. Morning sun makes this cabin bright and cheerful. One wall has a floor to ceiling window, perfect for watching squirrels scamper up the trees or the snow gently falling. The décor and furnishings make this mountain cabin comfortable and cozy.
The kitchen is fully outfitted with a full size refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, blender, coffee maker, etc.. Enjoy our selection of cd’s, games, and videos. There is a cable tv with a DVD, VCR player.
This cabin is not appropriate for children under the age of six.
We hope you feel “at home” in our home and create many special, wonderful lasting memories.

An adorable cabin but with no updated energy efficiency. No dual-paned windows or weather stripping around the doors. When we arrived at 2 p.m., the temperature was in the 30's and had dropped down to 18 degrees the night before. However, no one had been to the cabin to turn on the only form of heating (a propane heater in the quaint living room with 6-foot tall windows -cute, fireplace-looking heater.) The draft coming in from the always-open flue competed mightily with the heater. The bedrooms, the bathroom, and the kitchen are always quite chilly. Once we got the fireplace going, it helped and once we had spent a 24-hour period there with the propane heater going day and night, the house seemed to hold onto some of the warmth. The kitchen door, however, always had very cold air coming in from all around it. The temperature in the kitchen was always about 55 degrees (there's a thermometer on the door jam there.) I ran the oven sometimes just to warm up that part of the cabin. The bathroom is the 2nd coldest room in the house. And, it did have an awful smell,...especially when we kept the door shut so we could improve the chances of heating up the living areas. By the way, bring your own hair dryer. What is especially surprising, though, is that there are only 3 teeny drawers in the very small bedroom that are available for your clothing. Other than that there is 1 closet to hang some clothes. There is already a lot of stuff stored in that one-and-only closet, however. Not much room for the guests' belongings. My husband and I each pack very lightly so we just left our stuff in our little airplane carry-on luggage and left the bags in the living room on the floor. The Artist's Cabin is a lovely place. It is just so unfortunate that there has been no money spent (that was apparent) to make it a "less rustic" place to stay in the cold weather, to visit the snow, etc. The money spent on propane to heat the cabin must be quite substantial over the years. The kitchen is quite adequate. The tv gets a lot of stations. The bed is quite comfortable. By the way, I covered the windows with towels to keep some of the cold air out. On the plus side, it's a very quiet location, beautiful surroundings to look out the window, very easy walk (1/2 mile-ish) to town and it is a cute, homey-looking place with a huge river-rock fireplace. We would not book there again despite its attributes.
