***Brand new listing*** The Crescent Oak is a custom designed and built open-air cabin that will take your breath away and make you feel as if you have been transported to a destination nature resort. Take a deep breath and leave the stresses of the outside world behind as you step into the forest to follow the tranquil pathway through the trees to the cabin. The Crescent Oak is wonderfully placed among the privacy of the trees and only a minutes walk from the property pond.This enchanting get away cabin is the work and artistry of one of our talented community members. Created with 90% salvaged material and utilizing fallen trees and branches from the trees it sits among, you can't help but feel the consciousness and care that imbued it's birth. From inside the cabin you will be able to fully enjoy the way the space invites the outside in while fully enclosed by protective mosquito screening. You have several options for privacy and protection from the elements with two separate canvas layers you can tie back for the view or let down. The space is thoughtfully equipped with a full size fold away mattress and coffee table to allow versatility and extra room when not using the bed. This off-grid gem even offers enough power to run the light and small fan inside, as well as a place to charge your phone. Cook your dinner over the nearby fire-pit, take the kayak for a spin across the pond, spend some time star gazing, listen to the orchestra of nature, and steal yourself a few moments of peace. You deserve it.

A bit about the land The Crescent Oak lives on....

Our property is a densely forested 85 acres with a walk-able 2 miles around the perimeter of the property and many trails and hidden nooks to explore throughout the heart of this beautiful escape back to our natural roots. We are in the process of mapping out the trails- which we plan to make available soon! For now those of you with a sense of adventure and desire to explore will certainly be satisfied.

We have a full acre size pond and a kayak that you can feel free to use. There is a communal area around the pond that we will be adding to in the near future- you may run into some of our community members or other campers there from time to time, we invite you to socialize, bring a chair, perhaps a beverage or snack and get to know each other and us as well if we cross paths!

You will observe and encounter wildlife in abundance including a variety of birds, wild hogs, opossums, armadillo, moles, spiders, scorpions, butterflies, praying mantis, walking sticks, snakes- keep an eye out for rattlesnakes and copperheads, deer, many insects, and more. Please be cautious and treat these creatures' home with respect for them as well as yourselves. Our property is also home to some lovely cows, chickens, a few dogs, and several cats- they (other than the cows who do what they please) generally remain in areas away from our camp sites though they may still decide to stop by to say hello!

I liked the place. Trails could have been better taken care of. Loose dogs made it difficult to go hiking in most places. We caught a monster cat fish in the small pond though.
The gas station / grocery store .5M away is awesome in case you left something at home or want a snack.

Ultimately we had a lovey time. The little cabin was perfect for sleeping. We were actually really impressed with the ingenuity behind the build. There’s also a little battery that kept the fan in the cabin going all night which was wonderful. It was perfectly quiet and right where we parked was a big clearing where we spent a few hours watching the stars.

A few things that could have gone better and hopefully with this note will go better for you:

- make sure the hosts see your booking and sends you a real message. We ended up nearly going back home because we couldn’t find anyone or the cabin at first.

- don’t just go to the address on the listing. We did and nearly got stuck in mud (turns out there’s a back entrance)

- bring your own fire wood. We ended up having to skip the fire because the wood they brought us was too wet too catch. (It had just rained so we understood and had our propane stove as a backup.

Pretty minor issues for what was ultimately a perfect evening all things considered. Would definitely recommend if what you seek is your own little getaway in the woods.

Honestly the best campsite!!! I was very happy that the bathrooms were super close to the camp. The host stop bye and talked to us a bit, he felt like an old friend. Definitely going back 10/10

I enjoyed the cabin a lot and I especially loved how there was a little charging port with twinkle lights! felt like a fairytale.
One thing I really disliked was how many gunshot I could hear during the day and through the night. As we were stargazing at night, we heard gunshots very close range around 11pm and could see the flashlights of those who were shooting. They was closer than anyone should be while discharging a weapon at night without any visibility. This scared everyone, including my dog who is terrified of the noise. This made everyone very upset and paranoid throughout the night.

If you’re someone that loves summer nature sounds, this place will be perfect for you! I was awestruck by the symphony of insects at night and birds in the morning. You could easily record relaxation tracks out there.

Also, the cabin is so well designed. My only disappointment was that it DIDN’T rain, because the only thing missing was the sound of a little rainfall on the tin roof. It’s a great getaway!

Neat place to visit, with unique and effective craftsmanship. We just weren't sure how to access the pond, nor did I have the signal to ask when we got there. We're used to checking for bugs when staying in cabins, but we'd forwarn others who aren't used to more rustic accommodations. The spider population is happy and thriving in these woods, to say the least. Still! Lots of privacy, even with neighbors, and we had fun.

Secluded and immersed in nature. The cabin was clean and free of bugs! We had fun roasting marshmallows and waking up to birds singing.
