Here's your chance to check out this comfortable little rustic off-grid cabin in the woods with it's southern exposure views. Rustic comforts include loft sleeping area with king bed, indoor compost toilet, water catchment & filtering system, cook stove, wood stove, & solar-powered lighting system. I  just recently raised the nightly rate by $15 to $90 to cover costs of a non-electric propane furnace,  and a new solar powered 12-volt refrigerator,  as well as supplying firewood for wood stove. These additions make it a more relaxing experience not having to worry if you are fire-starter challenged or if you check-in late.  Escape the carbon footprint jungle for a weekend or a week. We have you covered. We want to assure you that we clean the cabin between stays, supply clean linens, and provide hand sanitizer/disinfectant cleaners for your use. Winter note: There are some short cross-country ski trails on property and nearby trails. 

Purplehaze Acres is a 60-acre organic rustic farm in Rubicon, WI and resides at the beginning of the approx. 650-mile Niagara Escarpment--known locally as "The Ledge". We are in close proximity to the natural treasures of the the Ice Age Trail for hiking, Pike Lake for swimming,  the great Horicon Marsh, the Wild Goose Trail for biking, and Lake Sinnissipi/Rock River for canoeing/kayaking/fishing/boating*. Also a little drive away is the world-renowned Holy Hill Shrine. Nearby Hustisford ("Husti") offers unique shopping experiences, such as the Mercantile. Need a few organic groceries? Make sure to visit Back To The Best Organic grocer only 3 miles away and featuring food raised on local organic farms including Purplehaze Acres. Overall, this is a great "peace" of earth. ☮

*Despite the Hipcamp site stating we are near Harrington Beach and Kohler-Andrae, we are actually 58 miles (over an hr) away. There are many attractions much closer.

I wanted to love my stay at this tiny house, but the window sills were piled with dirt and littered with dead bugs. Dusty spiderwebs hung everywhere, and the strange choices in what I now know is decoration was off putting. A tray of extremely rusty silverware along with a big rusty butcher knife sat next to the stove.
The space held seating for 8. Five wooden chairs and a full size sofa in about 200 square feet made it feel like an abandoned clubhouse. Too much for a place that sleeps three at best.
I will say the solar system is good. We could recharge our phones and a laptop and still have lighting for all we needed at night, and the sun goes down about 4:30 pm that time of year.
Water was there, but it has to be filtered after you pump it from the system. We weren't prepared for that so you might want to bring some water to get you started. Fridge works best if you fill it up.
Then there were the mice in the ceiling and walls that moved and chewed for hours at night. You can't see them. They are behind thick wood walls, but you can certainly hear them.
I did like the feel of a treehouse I got when up in the loft. The windows are really cool. Heat was no problem. The woodstove was actually too much so used the propane and it worked perfectly. We didn't try to cook so can't speak to the burners.
I did communicate with the host after we left. He basically said, "it's a house in the woods".

Very nice and cozy cabin! My only complaint is it felt like it hadn’t been cared for in awhile, dusty, overgrown, missing basic amenities. But otherwise a wonderful and secluded cabin.

Ps: door doesn’t have lock

The cabin was great and better equipped than we expected. It was a welcome surprise to have electrical outlets inside, enough hardwired lighting not to need flashlights, and a comfortable bed in the loft. My wife and I love being outdoors, but don’t always feel like packing out all the gear to do tent camping for a quick weekend getaway. This was the perfect compromise of getting some time outdoors and still having some creature comforts.

Being from Chicago, we enjoyed our quiet and relaxing weekend at the Stone Ridge Tiny House! We also brought our dog, which worked out great.

The house provided really everything we needed. We were happy we brought extra jugs of drinking water though. We visited October, which was the perfect weather. The house might have been hard to keep cool in the summer!

This tiny house is so cute and cozy. Loved walking through the grounds and waking up to the sight of a good sun beaming down on wildflowers and rolled hay bales. It’s a great weekend getaway to simply relax or enjoy nearby Ice Age Trail hiking (20 min drive). (Side note: If you’re coming from Chicago, stop by Blue’s Egg in Milwaukee on the way home!)

Very cute cabin! It was rustic and homey, with the most eclectic assortment of decorations. The loft bed was comfy and cozy and perfect to snuggle up in for the evening. I loved using the stove - you have to light a match to start the stove, quite the novelty. Like other reviews have said, when you’re packing pack like you’re going camping. Bring your own cooler with ice (the fridge worked okay, good enough for drinks, maybe not quite good enough for dairy products), bring your own water, bring something to keep your dry food in so it doesn’t attract critters (def something I regretted not bringing!), power source, garbage bags, etc. Everybody was very friendly and the cabin was so cute!
