There's a six foot claw foot tub outdoors which can be filled with water and heated by a fire underneath...known thru time as a cannibal tub. There's a wonderful outdoor shower with on-demand hot water.
We supply a box of fire wood per night...which is usually plenty for most people. After that, $5/box...
It's quiet and dark outside at night, with a great valley view. The whole place is quiet, clean, and very comfortable. Even though its open to the meadow, privacy prevails because of the landscaping and hilly terrain.
The sleeping cabin can accommodate up to five single beds or one king size bed and a single. The kitchen cabin has a double futon. The outdoor covered lounge has two additional large bunks. All the beds have comfortable, real mattresses. EVERYBODY SLEEPS REALLY WELL HERE. Tents can be set up in the yard next to the cabins. Additional persons $30 each with beds for about eight people. Tents ($10/nught) can be set up in the yard. We have additional single bed frames with or without mattresses which can be moved around outside...

This would be a fun place for a party. Just staying near the cabins with a book or visiting with friends is really relaxing. Or making music... Or a take-off point for hiking the mountain behind us where there are great flat land trails and high land trails.
With such comfy lodging, winter "camping" is really possible...for river runners, fisher folk, dog lovers, walkers...winter is fun...dramatic weather is fun.
This is also a great place for privacy for people/person looking for some relaxation time. It's a good place to let the body rest and eat very basically. No temptations for miles. We can supply food from my organic garden and orchards through out the year.
Wifi is not available at the cabins, but is available 100 feet away, on the porch of the main house.
You have access to my garden--bring your own grains, meat, tofu and add our farm veggies. Even in the depths of winter there's something in the garden to eat... Through the winter, salad greens are growing in the greenhouse Come help us keep up with the free ranging chicken's gorgeous eggs...The basics are in the kitchen cabin....rice, oil, condiments, hot cereal, tea, coffee...
Doggies welcome...! No leash law--they can play and run, swim in the pond, and charge around on the trails.
Walk into the woods behind our place where we've made trails for easy walking down by the creek or more challenging trails up the hill to a overlook, great at sunset. Some of the trails are easy and some hard but all are well signed. The upland trails are a great workout and lead to some gorgeous views of the valley and Mt. St. Helen.
We have a great little pond to play on with floaties or kayaks.
There's wonderful river play very near by...fishing, sailing, kayaking, swimming, picnics. This is a great stop off place for long-distance cycling.
The sixth night of reservations by the same person is free, no need to be consecutive nights.
Wifi is available on our front porch.
Interaction with guests
We live right near by and can help when needed. We'll be happy to help direct guests towards fun activities on the farm or nearby. We tend to stick to ourselves and give maximum privacy to guests.
Other things to note
The sixth reservation by the same person--that is the sixth night--is free. The reservation nights do not need to be consecutive.
We expect guests to respect our home and gardens...clean up and be safe. Pets are welcome. Smoking outside the cabins is fine.
Our family has lived here on this place for 40 years and really love it! We've been small scale commercial, certified organic produce farmers for about 25 years--now retired and loving having more time to do anything we want---mostly gardening, kayaking, walking. Country living at it's finest. Ike Kinswa State Park is near here and is really beautiful, safe flat-water kayaking with great beaches for picnics. There are places on the Tilton River 5 minutes from here that require no fees or permits.
Presently, we share the place with about 60 chickens so we have lots of eggs...great for quiche, ice cream, anything eggy...
We love making ice cream and watching movies....or sitting around the fire and watching the night sky. We love making things out of wood from the place...maple, cedar, elm, plum....
I've traveled some....The water play around here is just as fabulous as the places I've been to in Costa
Rica (no alligators, or large snakes!), Hawaii, Florida..... And, just about no bugs!!!
