Property description

Just the perfect getaway! The cabin will accommodate honeymooners, weekenders, reunions, girl vacays,.. If you're in need of simply a room, we can cater to that! There's no need to rent the entire place so if you and your spouse or you and another couple want to come enjoy time away, let us know! :)

There are two houses that make up our abode. The Main House is a log cabin in which we have the kitchen, bath house, breakfast room, game room, screened-in porch, and 3 bedrooms; one full, one queen, and two sets of bunk beds. The Smokehouse is connected to the Main House and is the master suite.

The Guest House shares a deck and lots of common areas with the Main House, and it's comprised of two floors of residential; two queen rooms with twin beds and kitchen areas. Upstairs entails a queen bed and 4 twins.

Decks, hammocks, bird watching, relaxing, grilling on the outside fireplace, horseshoes, roaming around the property, and sitting by a cheery fire are some of past guest's favorite things!

If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Car: Recommended

This old cabin has been in our family a long time and about 10 years ago, my dad who is a very gifted builder made this special place his priority. He artistically combined old and new and created quite the sizeable estate while maintaining a cozy warm environment. Come get lost in 'The Ritz on the South Toe' and you'll understand what I'm failing to adequately describe.

The grounds are most beautiful in peak season but it's a nice place to unwind year round as fire places are tucked in throughout and make awesome blazes year round, hammock hooks and hammocks are wonderful for afternoon dozing, decks are many, outside sleeping opportunities make for an awesome experience on clear nights, grilling on an open fire, sitting around enjoying serene settings, good food with friends and family, a night of darts, board and card games, hide and go seek, a fabulous slide that dad bought at auction keeps things interesting, a fun sand box, ping pong, a climbing wall, horseshoes, football, Frisbee, lit candles in the mounted hurricanes on the perimeter columns make for a sight to behold in the evening, warm reading nooks, beautiful strolls, strenuous hikes, perching in the river, watching the 'hummers' battle it out at the bird feeders..

This home stole my heart ages ago and I promise it'll steal yours, too!
