Cordwood cabin with a natural living roof overlooking a glade in the forest. Private, cozy, and wonderfully quiet. It's a fairy tale place for adults!

With its table for two, window looking out onto the pines, tiny woodstove that belts out the heat in the winter, and a whimsical window seat that becomes a bed at night, this cabin has everything you need.

There's semi-private lake 4 or 5 minutes down the trail—excellent for swimming. Use our canoe or try your hand at fishing (BYO license!).

The space
The Hobbit House is exquisitely primitive. There is no electricity but there are plenty of candles and a candle-powered LED lantern for light. There is no running water but there is a chamber pot and nearby thunder box outside to do your business, and we provide a jug of fresh potable water for drinking.

It’s a bit like elegant indoor camping. This spacious cabin has a window seat that turns into a (nearly) double bed, a table that can be used for eating or playing cards, and a wood stove with plenty of firewood that heats the space even on the coldest of nights.

There is minimal but adequate cooking equipment—butane burner, pots, pans, plates, bowls, mugs, cutlery, cooking utensils, can opener, bottle opener, kettle, and even a french press for your morning cup of coffee!

Pack as if you were camping, except you can leave your dishes and linens at home! There are no roads to the cabin so you should be prepared to hike with your belongings from the parking lot over some rough terrain, approximately 20 minutes. We provide fresh sheets, a warm bamboo duvet, plenty of pillows, and an extra blanket for good measure.

Guest access
Access to over 200 acres of trails for hiking. Nearby semi-private lake for swimming and canoeing.

Other things to note
There is limited cell service and no Wi-Fi. You will be given emergency access to the main lodge, which has power, Wi-Fi, and a landline.
