7 Caravan/Tent
This property is supposedly one of the first homesteads in Jordan Road.  This information is based on stories from some old timers my husband had spoken to in the past when he bought this property in 2002. The owner back in the old days sold off parcels and parcels of lands back then. The property is all fenced in, a place where your fur buddy can run free so you don't have to worry of the baby getting lost!  Hopefully you'll get a visit from a deer and hear the hooting of the owl. :) You are welcome to check out our goats too if you want (they're in their enclosed space).  The surroundings are peaceful and private, you will enjoy exploring the trails all around the 9 acres out of 12 we are sharing.  Stroll down the hill to listen to the sounds of the creek and fish ladder.   Our campground is about 4.9 miles from the 'Granite Falls Fish Ladder'.  Visit this beauty at Mountain Loop Highway if you fancy another little hike.  The 'Lime Kiln Trailhead' is around 7 miles. The trail is full of amazing views and history. Our place is only about 45 minutes from Seattle.  Why not pack your tent and sleeping bags then drive here after work, then leave in the morning. Leave your worries behind.. enjoy nature.

Cabin #2 - Cozy Forest Stay
We had so much fun in Cabin #2! Grace is so kind and welcoming. The property was well kept, cabin was clean, and it was a nice cozy evening. Thank you for the great time! A place we will definitely come back to.

Grace is SO kind and responsive. The cabin was clean, warm, comfortable, everything we would need/want in camping. The outhouses were well kept and clean. The dogs loved being welcomed and enjoyed running through the forest. We’re already planning our next trip here!

Camping with dogs
We loved our stay at the Mini Cabin! Brought two really energetic dogs along and they had a blast sniffing around. The whole area is a majestic forest with maintained gravel pathways. Grace is an extremely nice and helpful host that communicates very well. Highly recommend to book.

Birthday glamping
After seeing these cabins during a visit to the sniffspots, I immediately booked an overnight stay to surprise my husband for his birthday. He was so surprised and we had an amazing time staying in the cabin with our dogs. The dogs tired themselves out running and exploring Grace’s property - it was great knowing that they couldn’t escape and that we were perfectly safe. The cabin was perfect and the fireplace kept us nice and toasty. Grace was the best host, she responds so quickly and is so accommodating. I realized a few days before the stay that I would need dishes and she said no problem! Upon arrival, she showed us the way and showed us how to operate the grill, fireplace, etc. We will definitely be back! Here’s a list of things we brought for our overnight stay: - pillows - blanket - towels (for the doggies since we knew they’d get muddy) - 2-3 gallons of water (for drinking and washing) - hand soap - utensils for grilling - matches - extra flashlight

Excellent getaway in the woods with our daughter and 5 friends. A Sweet 16 birthday that won't be forgotten! Not sure if the kids slept, but we sure slept well. Couldn't hear a peep from them!

Great getaway!!
We loved our stay at the Mini Forest Cabins! It was such a beautiful weekend at the cabin and we enjoyed the property very much. We even went for a hike nearby at the Lime Kiln Trail, it was absolutely gorgeous! 10/10 recommend. It was such a great little getaway for only being about 45 minutes away from Seattle. We would definitely stay here again and maybe even rent out all three cabins with friends! Grace was also so sweet and made us feel very comfortable greeting us upon arrival.

Amazing glamping experience!
We LOVED our experience! My parent's and I were looking for somewhere to get the full camping experience while having shelter from the cold nights and this fit exactly what we were looking for. We had plenty of privacy and space from the other cabins and felt we were immersed in the forest. Our car did struggle to get up the steep gravel hill but we made it up on the second try. A four wheel drive would have no problem here. The cabin was large enough to accommodate 3 of us and the king sized bed had a very comfortable mattress for ultimate comfort. Hina was very hospitable and attentive. We hope to return soon!!

This site was great! The cabin was comfortable and cozy and the forest was beautiful - the cabin felt very private/secluded though it was only a short distance from the main house and road. Grace was great, she brought us fresh eggs which we ate for breakfast in the morning.

We stayed at cabin 3 and it was just beautiful. The cabin and outhouse were very clean and well maintained. The porch with the cute little rocking chair is a perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee while watching the pup zoom around. Great safe place for dogs. Very private and peaceful.

We really enjoyed our last minute stay! I appreciate Grace's hospitality and the safe space to let my dog be free while I get to do something I love. This is a perfect getaway spot for a quick jaunt away from the city. Excellent area hiking too.

Charming Dog Friendly Cabin!
This was such a great experience! Grace is very kind and responsive. The cabin was less than an hour from Seattle, which made for an easy overnight. The sites are clean, well maintained, and quiet. You can tell she’s put a lot of thought and heart into the space. The cabin had a pull out futon and bunk cots with a small table and heater. The space has plenty of seating, a grill, trash cans/bags, and fireplace. The sight is rustic, but Grace has lanterns in the cabin and outhouse to make life easy! The best part was that it was a fenced in property so our dogs could run off leash. They didn’t want to go home!

Super great for dogs and kids
My family and our dog stayed at cabin 1 and had a wonderful time. There's a small creek and lots of space to explore. The cabins are surrounded by trees and feel very private. They are off-grid so be sure to bring cooking/dining utensils, sleeping bag, water, and lights at the very least. The best part, for us, is that the large area of land is fenced in so our city dog got to practice his recall out in mother nature without us worrying that he would run off. We definitely recommend this place!

An exceptional "camping" experience
This cabin was everything we could have hoped for! If you want the camping experience with a little fire pit and being surrounded by trees and nature, you've got to check out Grace's cabins! What's great is that they had other people staying in cabins and camping on their property, but we didn't see any of them. Cabin #3 is completely secluded and we slept like babies. Grace and Brian we're very nice and helpful, Grace even had spare tea light candles for us for the wall sconces. Highly recommended and we will come back with friends!

We stayed in Cabin 3 and everything was perfect. There were two adults and a 12 yr. old and we all slept comfortably. Grace was friendly and provided excellent instructions for us. There were two other groups while we were there but we did not encounter them at all on our trip. We had a great time and everything was very well cared for. Highly recommend.

Great trees surrounding the cabin
It was a little off-putting to hit the book now button on hip camp and the very next thing receive a text that we need to pay an additional 15.00 for the cabin we picked before being accepted. I picked cabin 3 straight from your site for the price listed, you should be able to include any additional fees that the host requires. It felt scuzy and fishy to suddenly receive and additional request for money. I tried really hard to send money via the requested methods, even set up a personal venmo account to do so and finally recieved the required info to send it by zelle. I had already paid the 162.50 on hip camp and offered to bring the additional 15.00 at check in but was made to feel like I was trying to duck out on a bill and better bring it or else. It set the trip on a bit of a sour start but we made the best of it and had a good time. The cabin is comfy and cute and while you had to reach through spider webs to wipe your bum at the out house, it was a fun place to spend one night. The host was nice once we got there and our dog had her first off leash and water experience so it will forever be part of our memories.

Our camping experience with Grace and the cabins in the mini forest was awesome! She is so friendly and accommodating and there were lots of little extras in the cabins we weren’t expecting. We had a wonderful time and our dog had a great time in the creek!

Grace's land was beautiful! Clearly marked trails and plenty of space to spread out, yet we were still far enough from other campers to not be bothered at all. Wasn't expecting all the roosters and goats and a turkey (maybe?))

Your dog’ll love it here! So will u
I was there with a group of my friends and had so much fun at Grace’s site! We ended up booking two cabins and my friend’s lab loved exploring the land - she actually gave the biggest smile that even her owner didn’t see before! We had so much fun and Grace’s cabins had all we needed - sleeping cots, gas grill, fire pit, and an outhouse. Will definitely return to Grace’s site and we all highly recommend it. Grace was also a great host as well - very communicative and super nice.

Camping with the Puppers!
What an amazing spot! The cabin was perfect and clean, the area was fun to explore, and Grace is so welcoming and kind. It was so nice to be able to let my dog explore and not have to worry about her since the entire area is fenced. She had a blast sniffing around and having room to really streach her legs. There is a shallow creek that she was able to play and jump in. The cabins were spaced out nicely. There was another group there, but you wouldn't have known it. The bathroom was clean and close. The road was well maintained. You can tell that Grace really cares about the area. I can't wait to come back!

Cabin in the woods
We were traveling the west coast for 2 weeks. We booked 13 nights at different places from San Francisco to Seattle and this was by far the best place we stayed. Grace was fantastic. Incredibly helpful and gracious host. We stayed in cabin 3 which fit 4 people easily. The cabin is essentially brand new, with brand new cots and futon. I cannot explain how happy we were with every inch of this place, from the inside to the outside.

Great for a family of 4 (& a dog)!
We stayed 3 nights in Cabin 1 and had a great time! The bunk beds were perfect for our 8 year old boys and there was plenty of room for us to move around in. The heater was nice when it started raining on the 3rd day too. Loved the outdoor shelter and it was so convenient to have a grill and large trash can provided. The outhouse was cleanly and well-supplied and there were lots of little trails to walk around on. Would definitely recommend this place!
