About the owner: Hi, I'm Barry Hicks! I live and work in a nearby community and grew up in the area. I enjoy outdoor activities so we take advantage of the local resources - like the trails, lakes, rivers and streams.
Why the Owner Chose Baldwin:
This cabin is unique and located in the perfect spot that overlooks a trout stream. It's just off the paved highway and only 2 miles from downtown Baldwin. Trails, lakes, rivers and other things to do are just minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Custom-built by a master guitar builder, you will not see another cabin quite like it. The location is pristine and the details of the cabin accentuate the surroundings. 6ft. tall windows placed around the domed structures give you direct views of nature. Open beam construction and an open floor plan give this place a comfortable, homey feel.
