This is one of two floating red cedar panoramic "wine barrel" cabins located in gorgeous wine country! A glamping experience on the water like no other! You will be tied to shore and floating in beautiful Fox Creek, overlooking lush vineyards and surrounded by wildlife such as local bald eagles, Canadian geese, ducks, herons, bushy red tailed foxes and much more. The location of this floating "wine barrel" cabin, only minutes from all the major wineries, is comparable to no other!

The space
Step out onto your floating dock from the creeks edge and open the door to your floating "wine barrel" cabin. You will immediately see the massive panoramic window overlooking the water and will be greeted by the beautiful smell of cedar melting you into relaxation. Lounge on your comfy queen bed and watch as nature passes by your panoramic view into country bliss. Lay at night and gaze up through your window into a starry sky not polluted by city lights.

Kick back at your own floating tiki bar and enjoy a bottle of wine from one of the local wineries, or grab a cold drink from the mini fridge! Stretch out on the front lounge chairs shaded by an umbrella and enjoy the view of the Pinot Grigio grapes preparing themselves for harvest in the vineyard surrounding you. The custom outdoor whiskey barrel sink, which works with the lithium powered outdoor bamboo shower, adds a fun touch to your unique stay on the water. A personal port-a-john is available for each unit and is equipped with a Dometic chemical toilet.

Running off solar power this floating cabin powers your indoor fan, 19” flat screen TV and DVD player, water pump for your outdoor sink and shower, as well as the mini fridge located in the tiki bar. You are also equipped with all kitchenware, utensils, towels and linens for your stay. There is a Coleman grill on board and a private fire pit located on land just in front of your lounge chairs for a cozy evening in.

A 9.4ft row boat comes as an extra perk with your stay to take in a romantic sunrise or sunset paddle up and down the creek water. Perhaps even cast a line and catch one of the many catfish, bass or bluegill that frequent the area.

You're only a 10 minute walk to historic John R. Park Homestead with three private beaches, and to Farm Dog Cycles/The Fruit Wagon where you can pick up local produce as well as rent a bike to tour the area and wineries.

Come and enjoy all that wine country has to offer in this one of kind “red cedar "wine barrel" floating cabin”!
