The log cabin has over 200 years of history in its walls and on the grounds. It was once a dance hall where the young and young at heart could stroll with their sweethearts, down to the pond, to find row boats, made available by the proprietor, a railroad man.
Guests are invited to bow hunt (in season), fish the stocked pond, stroll nearly 20 acres, or cozy up to the wood stove, with a good book or a good friend. Find your favorite picnic spot, or enjoy our favorite - the café table beneath the age old ash.
The cabin has been updated for modern living, while retaining its simple beauty from a time and way of life, long past. Living areas include a great room, spacious bath and a cozy kitchen downstairs, and two queen bedrooms up. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator, a gas stove, microwave, and a coffee maker. It is well equipped for cooking and enjoying what you've cooked. Please feel free to use our collection of cast iron cookware to prepare your meals. A washer and dryer are available to guests, but there are no televisions, telephones, or radios. A carport accommodates two vehicles.
The Studio is a comfortably roomy efficiency that sleeps two adults, and is accessible to those with disabilities. It has a well equipped kitchenette, with a microwave and small refrigerator.
The Phoenix is a symbol of new beginnings. Legend has it that the Phoenix emerges from the ashes of its fire, with its beauty and power newly restored. Our hope is that you will experience a renewal of life and spirit during your visit, which will endure beyond your departure as our guest. Experience the gentle serenity and take the feeling home with you. Wise old growth trees, fresh air, mountain views, a babbling creek, quiet and private moments await our guests.
