Kelly: Beautiful site next to a wild flower filled meadow. This site is perfect for stargazing...
The cabin has a great little deck that gets tons of sun. (And at night it makes for a good stargazing platform!)
The big cabin windows get direct sunlight in the afternoon. You wouldn't expect there to be as much light as there is, considering you're in the middle of the woods.
The loft sleeps two people comfortably, and has a great view of the site.
The Pioneer Trail is a 5-minute walk from the cabin. It's 25 mile long trail that weaves through dense forests and ice cold rivers, with sweeping views and complete privacy. On our 10-mile run, we didn't bump into a single person.
Towering trees make the cabin look miniature.
