Welcome to an exquisite, eco-friendly way of vacationing and getting away from it all! From its solar water heat to the recycled lumber, this cabin packs many eco-sensitive features to bring you comfort in style. Its artistic flair can be experienced in everything in the handcrafted countertops, the exquisite tree staircase, and right down to the mosaic bathroom floor. You'll be pleasantly toasty in the winter with the radiant heat and gas fireplace. Plenty of windows and open floorplan keeps the space light-filled throughout the day.

Need to unwind? Let the jacuzzi massage the tension away. Read a book in the airy loft. Watch a DVD. Or simply take a walk to the neighboring Cameron House (on the same property).

Biking, canoeing, trout fishing, hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, are a few activities for you to enjoy on your vacation.

Eco Sensitive: This cabin was built in 2008 using sustainably harvested trees. The roof substructure and all major beams were repurposed from older buildings in the area. The building is mainly insulated with a green, soy-based spray foam insulation which keeps the interior warm and quiet.

The radiant heat and water heating system is powered through a solar / gas-boiler combination system. All makes for a quiet, even heat that foot-warming friendly. It keeps the air more comfortable and less dusty in the winter when compared to forced-air systems. This is a boon for those with indoor allergies and asthma.

                                                                      Nice eclectic getaway. Loved the unique features.

                                                                      Just what we needed!

Enjoyed the early morning outside listening to the river and birds chirping. Husband and sons enjoyed the brewery just down the road. A wonderful place to get away!

Beautifully decorated, spacious yet warm, friendly owners, and comfortable beds for a sound sleep. Too many beautiful features to describe this creative masterpiece. You will just have to stay there to experience.
