What a great experience! The Orchard cabin was small and cute, exactly what we needed. The cabin was well kept and clean. Clear instructions were provided. Check in was easy and required no face-to-face contact. The location is close to an absolutely beautiful beach. Would highly recommend to friends and family.

A cabin so nice, I stayed here twice! The proximity to hiking, the beach, and nature, in general, was a real treat. The Orchard Cabin is set further away than the other cabins on the property, which makes for a quiet and peaceful stay. I loved firing up the wood stove in the evening and drinking hot coffee on the deck in the morning. While this cabin doesn't have it's own portapotty or fire ring, they're only a short walk away and I did not have any issues sharing the communal facilities with the other guests. I highly recommend this cabin if you're attracted to cozy simplicity and find that, when in nature, less is more :)

The orchard cabin was simply wonderful! Compared to the other two cabins it was much more private, and overlooking the orchard was great. The cabin has a deck with a table and its own picnic bench, but it is worth mentioning that all 3 cabins share 1 fire pit near the outdoor kitchen. We had the fire pit to ourselves both nights anyway though. Overall would highly recommend to anyone looking for a rustic and comfortable getaway at a great price!
