Get back to nature in a spa-like setting. Our land is home to white tail deer, turkeys, fox, bald eagles and many other birds including wood ducks.

Our lodge has a "Rustic feel" with all the upscale touches.

Home is just 5 years old. All modern upgrades. Tank-less water heater. All bedding, towels, cookware,

We do NOT have TV's in bedrooms. We have one TV area, and we do not have cable. We offer a large DVD library for movies.

We also offer lots of board games, cards and puzzles.

Our rock road drive is 6/10th's of a mile off the main highway. Low clearance cars may have some difficulty.

Our home has 3-4 guest bedrooms, all with queen beds. We have 2 bathrooms for guest use. You will have use of a full kitchen, and our downstairs has a mini kitchen with Keurig coffee maker, microwave and beverage refrigerator.

We may be there on some weekends to provide breakfast and property tours if needed. We also may be there to tend to our property, as we have wildlife which we plant crops for. We do have a few observation towers if you want to see wildlife up close. They are insulated, carpeted and have heaters if needed.

Walking on our land will require sturdy shoes or hiking boots. If you want to feel really close to nature, bring a tent and build a fire. Or, take it at a much more pampered pace and enjoy our large stone fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, Double shower with rainfall shower heads. Get back to nature in a spa-like setting. We have a cowboy cauldron on our deck if you love outdoor grilling. We like it at night for making S'mores.

If you need space to roam, reconnect as a family, or have some quiet alone time, this might be the perfect spot. We are limited on technology, this is by choice. If you need internet, town is only a few minutes away, or bring a jet pack wifi.

Solitude in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We spent a couple of days at the West Point cabin to get away and recharge, and boy what a perfect place to do so. The home is clean, cozy and comfortable. There are lots of options for sitting, places to read, sit out in the fresh air, or to cuddle up in front of a fire or movie. Our hosts thought of everything, we were spoiled with snacks and beverages and I even had to use one of the ‘in case you forgot’ toothbrushes! For us, a family trip isn’t complete without our rat terrier Ace. He was allowed to come along and thought he was in heaven. Long walks through the property with lots of deer and turkey sightings were pleasant diversions for man and beast! We highly recommend a stay here and we hope to be back.

Quite Woodland Home

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you stepped in the door, this home welcomed us for a weekend getaway with our friends. A great location for exploring state parks and hiking in the area. Each morning we hiked some of the 100 acres this home has to offer. This home was well stocked with many food items to use for your stay. Snacks, beverages and breakfast items just to name a few. Each evening we enjoyed the wood burning fireplace. Plenty of room to spread out if needed. Linda was very helpful and quite pleasant to do business with. We definitely would stay here again, and look forward to exploring more of the area.
