*** Please keep in mind that this is a remote wilderness cabin, not an urban, full-service hotel. We are on a septic system and dirt roads, and surrounded by wildlife. We ask you to bring towels and linens, clean the cabin when leaving, and conserve water & propane. In winter and spring weather, there is a small possibility that you have to park on the road and walk up to the cabin. Please read the full description before deciding to book. ***
Our spacious, light-filled cabin is set on a beautiful, secluded river front with dramatic bluffs and rapids and more quiet parts for swimming and fishing.
Large windows throughout give spectacular views of the river, woods and surrounding hills. The sounds of water provide a wonderful backdrop, and you will rarely hear any traffic. We are at the end of a quiet unpaved road. Neighbors can only be seen from few views on the property, and mainly in the winter when the leaves are down.
The house was designed and built by local craftspeople in 1994. It is spacious (1100 sf) with vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan.
Downstairs you will find a large, fully equipped kitchen with an adjacent dining area, a cozy sitting room with a comfortable leather sectional and great views of the river, a large entry area with a queen futon and leather arm chair, a TV room/study with loveseat and desks, and a full bath. The large three-season porch (with futon and lounger) and the outside deck are great places to view and listen to the river in warmer weather. The two bedrooms, with comfortable full and queen beds, are upstairs. Three closets provide ample storage space.
The cabin has high-speed internet, stereo, two TVs, VCR, HDMI connection, DVDs (but currently no DVD player), video tapes, and a propane grill. The kitchen has a toaster, microwave, coffeemaker and -grinder, electric kettle, blender, mixer and all essential utensils.
There is no landline, but cell reception with AT&T and several other carriers is good. (If you do not have a cell phone, we can provide one for emergency calls only.)
We love sharing our cabin with responsible guests who appreciate a wilderness get-away over a hotel experience! Please consider before booking if our place is a fit for you and only reserve if you agree to all of the following:
*** You need to bring some basics, clean the cabin when leaving, and conserve water & propane. In winter and spring weather, there is a small possibility that you have to park on the road and walk up to the cabin. ***
CONTACT US: We rely on guests to communicate with us if anything is missing or not working. With the remoteness, we cannot check the cabin after each guest, and sometimes things break or get displaced. Please let us know! Contacting VRBO first will only delay our ability to help.
CLEAN-UP: We do not charge a cleaning fee. You need to leave the whole cabin as clean as you found it and ready for the next guest. Please follow the cleaning guide provided. Take extra care to clean up kitchen, bath, and all food remains everywhere-- even small crumbs and spills will attract mice (see below).
BRING YOUR OWN: You need your own linens and towels. For larger groups (>4), you also need some bedding. Buy your own local firewood if you plan on campfires. Highly recommended: flashlight, insect repellent, and, in winter, a shovel and sand as the hilly dirt road to the cabin can be a challenge.
STRICT CANCELLATION POLICY: We rely on guests to keep their booking so please check dates and cancellation policy carefully. We might also not be able to accept late change requests to shorten or postpone a stay.
CONSERVE WATER & PROPANE: We are on a septic system. It is essential to limit showers and flushes as much as possible. Flush only toilet paper (NO sanitary products, wet wipes, oils, harsh chemicals etc). Set heat to minimum anytime you leave cabin.
MIND THE WILDLIFE: To prevent mice, do not leave food out and clean up even small crumbs and spills right away. In the fall, mice might still come into the walls by the water pipes to seek warmth, but they will stay out of the living areas if food is cleaned up. It is thus possible you might see a mouse; please do not book if that is a problem! Because of bears, wolves and coyotes, do not leave garbage or food outside, and watch your dog.
NO TRESPASSING: Respect our neighbors and observe all property boundaries (see map posted in cabin). Do not go past the cable/gate at the end of the road. Our neighbors take trespassing very seriously and will take action!
SNOWMOBILES/ATVs; HUNTING: Use only designated trails, NOT private roads around cabin for riding. Your vehicles MUST stay on the trailer while on the property and the private roads around it. NO hunting or discharging firearms on property or in neighborhood.
NO-SMOKING: No smoking anywhere inside cabin, including porch. If you smoke outside, please use an ashtray and clean up after yourself.
FIRES: No open flames inside. Check fire danger warnings before making outside fires. Use local firewood only. Keep fire inside firepit. Put it out completely when you leave it.
GARBAGE/ RECYCLING: Please take garbage/recycling back with you. (If you absolutely cannot, please let us know and you can put it into sealed bins inside garage).
INFANTS COUNT AS GUESTS: All children, including infants, count as guests because of our Health Department restrictions, so please include them in the count when booking. Note that the house is not child-proofed and has open, steep stairs, regular (non-TR) outlets, steep, slippery, rocky areas outside etc. So it might not be a good fit for small children.
DOGS welcome; NO CATS, please: Well-behaved dogs are welcome for $10/dog/day. Please indicate them in your booking request. ***Keep them off the bedding provided, as other guests have allergies.*** Please also keep them off the leather furniture. If you allow them on the other couches, bring extra sheets to cover them. Do not leave them inside unsupervised unless kenneled. Clean up all dog hair and droppings when leaving. While we love cats, we regret that we cannot allow them due to severe allergies.
USE CAUTION: Leave no trace and explore the river and our property at your own risk. We are not responsible for injuries or losses to you, including those resulting from swimming, fishing, wading or other activities in the river. If you use the river, use caution on steep, slippery and/or rocky areas.
WINTER/SPRING DRIVING: In snow, ice, or mud, the last 1/2 mile of dirt road and driveway is difficult. Please be prepared for the possibility that you have to park on the road and walk the last bit to the cabin, esp. if you don't have 4WD. Use of driveway and dirt road is at your own risk. Please do not attempt to drive on them in dangerous conditions. When in doubt, park and walk! ***We cannot be responsible for costs to you or give refunds if your car cannot make it all the way to the cabin.*** (See the detailed manual for more).
